This next Brighton meet-up will be an online discussion between Brighton-based illustrators Ulrika Jarl and Steven Lenton. Together we will discuss how to create longevity within your career. Sharing in the twists and turns and ups and downs of how these two talented creatives have navigated their careers to date.
It will be an opportunity to meet new friends, catch up with some old ones and have some interesting conversations about what it takes to enjoy a long and successful career as an illlustrator. Whatever that means to you. What’s not to love?
