Hey, I'm new here :)

  • 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 :face_with_stuck-out_tongue:) 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?! šŸ˜±) 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 :smiling_face_with_open_mouth_closed_eyes:
