Super Obvious Secrets That I Wish They’d Teach In Art School at Marvelous Mustache Factory. I get a lot of emails from illustration students and young cartoonists.
Sometimes they ask to interview me for a class assignment, sometimes they’re recent graduates looking for advice on how to transition from art student to professional illustrator/cartoonist. I get emails asking about how I promote my work, how to “break into” illustration or comics, how to find clients, how to gain a following on the internet, etc. I usually laugh a little as I read all these emails because I myself am still really struggling to make ends meet as a full time illustrator and cartoonist. I’m still figuring out what works and what doesn’t. Sketchbookideas. Interactive and Instructional Sites for Kids: Art.
