All in all, I can speak highly enough of the class. Lilla reviews work in her video critiques and because of the large amount of students, she can just select some. Susan McCabe, an agent on Lilla's team, did a guest review during week 4 and my piece was in her selection. I was OVER THE MOON. I'm still over the moon. I had not been chosen before, and I was ok with that. Of course I wanted to be, but I was able to listen to the critiques and take bits and pieces and apply them to my own work.
Week 5 drew from Ukrainian Folk Art inspiration and at first I was like uhh..whhhhaaaaatttt? And then I was all like, OMG I LOVE THIS. I am still shocked at how inspiring I found this form of art. We had to complete a paper party good set and I had an absolute blast with it. I pushed my color choices a lot. I loved breaking down icons into simple shapes and filling them up with other shapes. I loved scale and composition play. I just, well, loved!!! (click to enlarge)
I also am so pleased to share that Make Art That Sells is a course about licensing artwork, and upon ending the second session I was approached to license artwork for greeting cards. I can't wait to share that with you in 2014, when they'll be on shelves!!!!!
