We’ve been working on SVSLearn for years now, and many podcast listeners are familiar with it -- it’s the premiere place on the internet to learn how to make a living as a children’s book illustrator, founded by working artists Jake Parker, Lee White, and Will Terry. But how did the company start? And what did we learn along the way? Turns out a lot of the lessons we learned building this business apply to lots of other artistically minded businesses, and can help you make money from your art. So let’s dive in and break down the 10 (technically 14!) best lessons we learned since starting SVSLearn.
Illustrators Will Terry, Lee White, and Jake Parker talk about illustration, how to do it, how to make a living at it, and how to make an impact in the world with your art.
