professional development workshops

Posted in Uncategorized by The Department of Illustration on February 4, 2011

I am really happy to be working in the studio again, looking at how illustration students can set up their own online shops and sell their own products directly. From zines to fabric, to toys and posters, it is good way to understand the processes that illsutration work undergoes when it is used for these products, and it is a great way to promote yourself too.

here are some links to get started..I will add to this as we go
