I created this graphic for an event I had in April 2017 sponsored by Wacom during Design Week Portland, where I taught local illustrators how to survive in the design industry.
During this lecture and happy hour event sponsored by Wacom, I shared the freelance advice creatives need to launch their career. This talk was for illustrators and makers that want to take charge of their income and start making a profit from their passion.
We started the evening with a 2 hour lecture teaching artists the secrets to becoming a thriving freelancer in the wild world of the design business. Then we ended the night in style with a camping themed happy hour full of games, giveaways, drinks, and all your favorite outdoor treats.
There was also an art exhibit featuring my products from RedBubble, along with a business card raffle where attendees won prizes like posters, mugs, lettering books and more.
The event was a complete success and every one left inspired and ready to hit the ground running with their freelance dreams.
