Online illustration videos & courses through Folio Academy!

Hey guys!

I wanted to share something with you that I'd heard about before but hadn't taken advantage of until recently.  As an artist, even though I'm done with school, I'm still very much obsessed with gaining as much knowledge as I possibly can about my craft.  I think it's important to look at different people's processes and constantly try new things. It's how we develop what works and what doesn't work for each of us as individual artists.

Well, I came across a site through several mentionings by other artists I follow called Folio Academy.
It's a great resource for anyone looking to get into Illustration, Children's books, etc but it also offers courses for traditional media techniques as well as digital work.  Even if you've been in the business for a while or have just finished school, I think there is plenty of information still applicable for anyone.

I recommend everyone to go at least check them out and see if there are any courses that strike your fancy :) I've been going through the "How to Illustrate Children's Books" and there's a ton of great advice and information through out. Very helpful and interesting.

*Edit*  The guys have just come out with a new tutorial on getting artwork ready for ebooks!

Go give 'em a look-see!

Hope you guys have a great week!!
