I made a short video for a contest describing my experience in the "Creating Collections for Home Decor" class. That class was FAB! I got soooo much work done in 5 weeks. The deadlines are intense, and it really pushed me to do my best work. Read more about the course here from Make Art That Sells. It's taught by art agent Lilla Rogers and creative director Margo Tantau.
The video includes my first animation/gif...I've been wanting to learn to do this for a long time. Fingers crossed!
I have good news-I'm the newest member of the Texas Chapter of the National Cartoonists Society. Woohooo! Visit this link to read my announcement.
The group is made up of comic strip writers and artists, political cartoonists, animators, film makers, and more. They host cartoon-related events in the state, and offer consultations with cartoonists about projects. The NCS/Texas Chapter has a speaker program where members talk about inspiration and insight into the world of cartoon art. They participate in charity "Cartooning with Kids" events, and much more.
