It’s about time I updated my blog! I promise to update more often =) Anyway, last weekend I was able to attend the Artist as Brand workshop here in San Francisco at the Academy of Art. I had the opportunity of meeting Greg Spalenka at Comicon this past summer and had attended his panel. I had been wanting to take his 3 day workshop for a while and was glad that they offered it at my school.
Taking his workshop was one of the best things I ever did for myself, I’ve learned so much about narrowing down my personal vision as an artist, learning business and marketing techniques on how to promote myself as an artist, and tons of social media tips. His wife Roxana Villa also gave a lecture on how she started building her business, you can check out her site here. I also met some talented people in the industry that I connected with. If you’re serious about going to business for yourself and really sustaining a living on your own as an artist, check out their site for upcoming events. http://www.artistasbrand.com
