Hi guys



  • I'm Jonathon
    I just found this site through watching Will Terry's videos on youtube. This is just what I've been looking for to up my game and relearn all of the stuff I forgot from college, which was almost everything.

    I live in Salt Lake, I work as an artist for a company that makes video bingo. Not the most exciting gig but it does give me an opportunity to be creative (sometimes).

    I'm here because I have always wanted to be a freelance illustrator (specifically to do children's books and concert posters) but never had the confidence in my artistic abilities to go for it. I think it's time to change that, so here I am. I hope to get to know some of you and learn how to be an illustrator. I look forward to the feedback and critiques in the forums and of course I'm super stoked to watch every last one of the classes posted on SVS.

    See you around the site.



  • Having confidence in your own abilities is so important--I struggle with that too. Welcome, fellow newbie! But since these forums are fairly new I think everyone is pretty new anyway :-)



  • Thanks Sarah and Nice to meet you.



  • Welcome!



  • Welcome!



  • Good to see you here. Been in the same boat. I am going back to creative work, also. Looking forward to this trip.
