Be more confident when working with clients. 

In this class, we will go through the process I usually follow when creating illustrations for clients, so you become more confident when presenting yourself as a professional illustrator delivering illustrations your clients will love.

During my career, I was lucky enough to work both as a client and as an in-house & freelance illustrator.

I want to share with you what I learned so you can develop your own process when working with clients, presenting your work, communicating professionally, and being involved in more and more interesting projects.

What you will learn

I will show you and explain my process step by step:

client brief
budget & pricing
finalizing & presenting your illustrations

We will talk about what makes a strong composition, how to test colors so they work well together as well as how you can start developing your illustration series.

By understanding my process, you can create your own and develop your professional approach to working with clients.

The information you will learn in this class will help you know what questions to ask and how to communicate with the clients. The more you know, the more professional you appear and you are more likely to get the job.

I will be using Procreate but feel free to use any other digital drawing program. In the end, I will use Photoshop to show you how you can apply your art to mockups to present your work in a portfolio.

Working with clients can be pretty exciting, so let’s start creating those awesome illustrations!
