Since I began consulting in 2012, I've helped over 40 illustrators either jump start their careers or head them in the right direction for marketing. My Illustration Career Consulting consists of getting a strong portfolio together, how to promote, how to keep the buzz going about your work, finding clients and more. I mainly specialize in children's illustration and licensing so that's what I will be focusing on. All consulting is done through email and each will be personalized & tailored to you. I won't be doing any blanketed bulk emails. And I of course have to say this, but by hiring me as a consultant I do not guarantee you will get work or that I will "introduce" you to perspective clients.

I have 3 different consulting plans for 2014 to better tailor to where you are/want to be in your career:

Each consulting program will begin on the 1st of the month. I am taking a limited number each month so if you're interested,
let me know your intention and I'll hold you a spot. When you sign-up we can work together on what start date works best for you.



Steps to Becoming An illustrator
2 month consultation $350 - Payment due of $175 via paypal for first month with $175 being due the second month. You can also pay in full at the beginning of the consultation.

You have the dream, but how do you move forward. I get emails every week from people wanting to pursue an illustration career but not sure how to do it. They like to draw but don't really have a portfolio together. This consulting plan is designed to help you find your style, get a portfolio together, know how to market yourself and what to expect when a job comes in.

There are some helpful tools that will make your life SO much easier as an illustrator so if you were able to have these items (or at least access to them) during consulting that would be great:

- Computer - but you've already gotten that if you'd looking at the page:)
- Sketchbook
- Scanner
- Photoshop (it's pricey but worth it, if you can't afford it, look into Photoshop Elements)
- Crazy passion and motivation!!!

2 months of consulting will consist of 2 "scheduled" emails a week.

  • 1 email on Monday mornings to get you geared up for the week and "assignments" on way to do that week.
  • 1 email on Friday morning to check your progress and make sure you reached your goals for the week and get ready for the next week.
We can email back and forth throughout the week with any questions you may have (I'm an open book), the 2 emails mentioned above or just to make sure you stay on track.

Here's a basic breakdown of the weeks:

Week 1: Finding your style - what makes you different
Week 2: Finding your medium - working smarter
Week 3: Working on portfolio pieces
Week 4: Networking and finding career support
Week 5: Getting a portfolio/website together
Week 6: Online presence
Week 7: Promotion
Week 8: What to expect when jobs come in
Week 9 (if applicable): Q&A
