Alright, it's here! Your 6 month plan to an illustration and surface design career. Woo hoo!
This is a bundle of both e-guides. They are pretty much the exact same but do have slightly different information and examples. If you are interested in learning more about illustation and surface design this bundle is for you!
The Illustration and Surface Design Career Roadmap is a simple but information packed PDF e-guide that outlines all of the basics you need in place to start and maintain an Surface Design/Illustration career. With the extra bonus files: Sell Sheet Templates, Airtable Base Templates, Quote & Invoice Templates, plus fun planner pages you will be all set to get started selling your art and taking on commissioned projects!
The guide starts with outlining your options as a surface designer/illustrator, then we move into your essential skills and then we jump into what exactly makes up a great basic portfolio (with examples!!!) After that I take you on a 6 month journey to get your business set up, your website ready, your portfolio built, clients researched and more so you are ready to launch your business in no time.
To finish the guide (and possibly my favorite part) I coach you on how to maintain your business in the months/years to come. What you should be doing each year, quarter and month to keep your business going. When to create new art, when to reach out to clients and other upkeep. I don't want you just to be ready to launch but able to maintain your small creative business in the long run.
I created this e-guide for all aspiring surface designers/illustrators who find it difficult to figure out what they should be doing in the beginning stages of starting in a design career and need a little hand holding and a major kick in the pants. I know first hand how difficult it can be when you are just starting out, as I've been there. (I had absolutely no help and used years of exhausting trial and error to figure things out.) This guide is exactly what I wish I had over a decade ago when I was just starting out. I also wanted a resource that is easy on the wallet. You don't always need to go expensive courses to get the simple help that you need.
If you do find that you need more help or personal guidance after purchasing and reading this e-guide please consider one of my one on one mentorship programs :) I would be happy to work with you on a personal level.

Disclaimer: Even though I’ve done all this planning and preparation for you I of course can not guarantee a successful long lasting profitable career. I wish I could! But that’s on you! There are a lot of variables that come into play from your talent, your ability to market yourself, your determination and maybe even a pinch of luck is involved. You’ve got a lot of your own work ahead of you but don’t let that put you off. If you put in the work, the passion, dedication, consistency and keep up with the organization then I’m pretty dang sure you’re going to make it! I’m crossing my fingers soooo hard for you.
