Top tips

“Planning and getting in your portfolio as you go along”
Know what you want to do, and plan in advance. If you know where you are, and where you want to get to, it makes your life so much easier.

“Don’t let the workload put you off”
If it’s something that you want to do…the workload shouldn’t put you off because you should be wanting to do as much of that art form as you can. Just do it as you go along, it’s a lot easier.

“Do it in something that you enjoy”
Do something that you’ve never done before that compliments your existing art work, as it will make you a more well-rounded professional

Keep the contacts of everyone you speak to. You never know when you might need to call them up for a favour, or advice down the road in your professional career.
