Hey! My name's Laura. I've been listening to 3 Point Perspective since the end of last year and have got so much out of it. So about a month ago I thought I'd check out those SVS classes the guys wouldn't shut up about (jkjk they mention it an appropriate amount of times ) and yeah, I'm loving it. Sooo next logical step was to come here! I don't have a huge illustration network IRL and I'm hoping I might be able to forge a virtual one here! I'm kinda shy (nooo an artist, shy?! ) But I will do my best to speak up and participate and not be a chronic lurker!
A bit about me? I went to art school in California, then moved to the Boston area a couple years ago where I've been working in a flower shop while I try to get an illustration career going. I'm particularly interested in writing and illustrating picture books and middle grade graphic novels. I've recently been consumed by a graphic novel "research" binge and fell in love with Hildafolk and On a Sunbeam. So, those are majorly inspiring to me at the moment.
Maybe some art examples?
^ Just a sketch but I'm feeling good with the SVS classes I did this weekend!
Also I'm re-realizing I really need to get better with creating final images! Tons of sketches and studies floating around.
I always welcome feedback! I'm trying to get better and actually do this thing. And I'll also do my best to help all of you out in whatever way I can!
Sorry for the novel. All my picture books have too many words too
@LauraLane welcome to the forums! It's a great place for a virtual network of illustrators.
Welcome to the forum. My daughter lives in Boston -- Beacon Hill area. It's a great city.
Where are you?

Welcome, Laura! I'm also a fan of 3-point perspective, just found it about a month ago. I love your coloring! Also, your pages look nicely laid out. My favorite is the sketch of the little bugs. Keep sharing!
