Hey everyone! If you did not already know, I am an art student in my junior year of college, and I freelance to make money for school and other needs :) I have been doing so for about 3 years now and I have had lots of questions sent to me about freelancing while in school, so I thought I would start making a blog with advice.

so far I am going to write about;
- making digital art (without shelling out any money for programs or classes)
- making your art better
- Art college vs teaching yourself
- making a portfolio website
- getting your work noticed
- finding your ‘style’ 
-staying motivated
- pricing your work
- selling art at conventions and online
- How to get in contact with really good artists and people of importance
- finding and getting freelance jobs
- Dealing with bad commissioners
- avoiding scammers
- Free resources
-Switching to photoshop
-Drawing tablets

what else would you like to see me cover? 
My website is at and if you or any of your friends need artistic advice, please check on it for updates which should come once or twice per week! 

thank you! :)
