Episode 1 Homework

In Illustrator Life Episode 1, Mark asks questions an aspiring illustrator should answer before choosing a professional illustration career path.

Homework: Inside your sketchbook…

  • List 5 illustrator related resources you bring to prospective clients. (Examples: caricature artist, art degree, typesetting church newsletters, etc.)
  • List 3 reasons you haven’t become a professional illustrator. (Examples: no family support, time limitations, lack of clients, etc.)
  • List 3 reasons you want to become an illustrator. (Examples: money, have a published book, fun, etc.)
  • A sketchbook or the Graphic Artist’s Guild Handbook can be purchased at your favorite book retailer. The handbook may be available at local libraries. Both books are used in future episodes.

The most important part of being a professional is time management. If completion of these four simple tasks isn’t possible, this channel may not be for you at this time.
