AOI WEBINAR: TAKING CHARGE AND STARTING OUT AS AN ILLUSTRATOR

June 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

A successful illustration career doesn’t happen from one day to another, and definitely not spontaneously. While creating a strong body of work is important, communication and consistency are also key. This webinar, especially designed for illustration students about to graduate, will cover the following:

  • The importance of being proactive and investing in different avenues in order to grow.
  • Key questions to bear in mind when promoting yourself and your portfolio.
  • Nurturing your website and social media.
  • Researching and contacting the clients you really want to work with.
  • Developing a presence online and (eventually) offline.
  • Building connections and a network.

This talk will draw on personal experience and showcase examples of other industry professionals, sharing practical tips you can start putting into practice during COVID19. After the talk, a short Q&A session will follow.

Marianna Madriz is an Illustrator based in London originally from Venezuela. After graduating from the Arts University Bournemouth in 2014, she’s gone on to work on a range of editorial and publishing projects, with clients including Laurence King, Vauxhall Corsa, AQUILA Magazine and House of Illustration. As well as freelancing, she assists many members on a weekly basis at the AOI. She’s currently working (from home) on her 4th illustrated children’s book.

 

Please note that this webinar is mainly for students and recent graduates.
