Do you want to improve as an artist? Need some advice on freelancing? Now might be the perfect time to step back and take a hard look at your portfolio, work on improving your skills, and addressing weak spots in your presentation so that when the economy kicks back in you are ready to hit the ground running. One way to do that is to get fresh input from an experienced professional. Like me!
Whether you are a student with a sketchbook or a professional with a full portfolio, I’ll take a good look at your work. I’ll tell you where you can improve, try to offer helpful pointers, and answer any questions you might have about drawing or the business of freelancing.
