Aigul IgembayevaToday, we have an interview with Aigul Igembayeva.  Aigul has taken MATS A&B.

Tell us a little about how you got started in art and design
It was long path: I took lessons in drawing in Moscow, I studied Adobe programs, calligraphy, and took the course of typography at British Higher Design School in Moscow. Now I am learning at e-courses of Lilla Rogers, Rachel Taylor. I believe that all my experience and courses gives me diverse experience.

Lilla always says “People buy your joy.” What brings you joy?’
Drawing beautiful things, morning walking, ginger tea, cappuccino and traveling :)

Which is your favorite market(s) to design for and why?
Home Decor. Because through my patterns and illustrations I want to share emotions. I dream that somebody will hurry to reach home and on the way there dream about having their favorite tea from a favorite cup. And it’s going to be my pattern printed on the cup that will make it favorite and dear. Or somebody loving his decorative pillows with my illustrations.

What are you working on currently?
Now I working on new collections for my portfolio and a few private orders.

What are some of the key things you have learned from the MATS experience?
The key things it was understanding that art market is huge, and everyone who wants to draw and making a living from art, can find his favorite market and develop his art career path.

How have the classes helped your artwork evolve /grow?
MATS classes were very useful for my artwork, because while doing the assignments I tried different styles, and it helps me to clearly see what kind of style I like, also I add to my portfolio a few good illustrations and patterns.

Any aha moments during MATS you would like to share?
The deep understanding that people buy joy, people feel things which were created with joy.

What are your key successes since taking a MATS class?
1. I have a strategy how to develop my art career path. It is a really important!
2. I’ve sent letters to art directors, got answers and I don’t afraid do that anymore :)

How would you describe taking a MATS class to a fellow artist looking to develop their art
MATS very good class for artists of all level, especially who wants to see his art on the physical products and develop art business in art licensing. MATS gives you understanding how a markets is working and understanding hot to draw your art for your favorite market.

How to be your own trend detective—Free download


Lilla

Me

I’ve been an art agent for over twenty-two years, and I’ve overseen the commissioning of thousands of assignments that my artists have gotten over the years. I’ve seen trends come and go, but what I know for sure is that artists thrive by staying fresh. Those who stay stuck in their style drastically reduce their career longevity.

Staying up on trends is really just about being aware of the visual cultural conversation. As we make art and design, we see, we create, we show. It’s an evolution of style we share with one another. Like molecules, we bounce off each other, ever affected by our environment. The true creative leaders vibe off of the aesthetic conversation, but then they bring it to the next level to lead the way. There are tools you can learn to develop this awareness.

I thought you might enjoy reading the FREE 10-page piece I wrote called How to be Your Own Trend Detective. This is one of many downloadables that I give out in my e-course called Make Art That Sells: Part B because I want artists to learn how to dig deep to find gorgeous color palettes, fresh subject matter, and interesting patterns and motifs. I get great pleasure from seeing the work of my students evolve and flourish, so that’s why I write these things.

You know what? I thoroughly enjoy writing instructional pieces for students, so I’ve packed a ton of downloadables just like this one in my courses. Some of our students actually print out all the materials from the Make Art That Sells courses and pop them into a binder!  I hope you’ll join me in class, and together we can grow your work.

Alumni success ‘spotlight’ interview with Courtney Beth Keller

cbk-headshot-BW-illustrated-550pxToday, we have an interview with Courtney Beth Keller of One Little Printshop. Courtney has taken MATS Bootcamp twice and MATS Home Decor twice, plus MATS A&B.

1. Tell us a little about how you got started in art and design

I started making art as a child – I remember in elementary school, cutting stacks of paper into heart shapes and other shapes, stapling it together and drawing images on the pages, essentially creating my own 1980’s stationery line. :) I always took art classes, and in junior high I won a contest drawing our yearbook cover. I started oil painting in high school, attended Kansas City Art Institute and in my 20’s, ran an online shop called Peace Boutique selling bags I sewed and screenprinted with my designs, always as a side gig while keeping a full-time job. I sold handmade skirts and dresses all over the world, from the US to the UK to South Korea. The high point in that era was selling a dress to Margaret Cho! When my son was born in 2011 I decided to take my creative work freelance and make it a full-time endeavor as One Little Printshop, illustrating and designing and creating work I could license. I illustrated a series of 3 children’s books over several years. When I discovered MATS courses, the world opened up!

2. Lilla always says “People buy your joy.” What brings you joy?’

I find joy in discovery, love working with different materials, and exploring texture, ink, textile, fabric, and COLOR! I also find joy in collaboration, and putting my energies into projects bigger than myself is incredibly rewarding.

CBK_FramedCatchMePrintAndJarEtc-650px

3. Which is your favorite market(s) to design for and why?

Currently I’m most interested in creating home decor / interior decor / textile patterns, because that is when I feel the most free and create interesting patterns. I think the fact that home decor allows for such a huge range in scale is part of what I love. Patterns can be tiny, printed on a tiny glass plate, or HUGE, printed on curtains or wallpaper.

4. What are you working on currently?

I am finalizing my Surtex preparations, including a Blurb book, a stack of fabric samples, and making little glass-and-metal magnets to give away. I’m also working on a list of projects to dive into after Surtex, so I don’t get lazy over the summer. This fall, my son will begin kindergarten and my studio time will nearly double – I’m very excited to see what the second half of 2016 brings!

CBK_LlamaBeddingPlum-650px

5. What are some of the key things you have learnt from the MATS experience?

I think the biggest takeaway for me has been the understanding that being a solo entrepreneur doesn’t mean working alone in a vacuum. I was fortunate enough to become a member of the Finch & Foxglove artist collective. The combination of 8 creatives from around the world has helped fill in my blind spots. I am a very productive artist but I have a very hard time knowing how to promote myself, and would never have achieved the preparation level for Surtex that I have achieved with the help of the group. Together, we go far! MATS taught me to find my tribe, throw my energy into moving us all forward in our careers, and it’s been life-changing.

6. How have the classes helped your artwork evolve /grow?

The MATS classes helped me see that I don’t need to segment my interests and knowledge. My web work and digital skills are just as important in my career as my painting and drawing skills. I used to stress about whether to let my web design play a part in my analog art. I’m not sure why, but I segmented different creative interests. More than any other MATS course, the Home Decor class made me realize I could let all my various interests intermingle and shine; my digital skills help me so much when I create mock-ups and build my website. My printmaking and hands-on background helps when I make promos, because I am not afraid to get messy with glue, ink, paint, printing, and metal. My graphic design background helps me when I put together my portfolio book. My creative garden can all grow in the same dirt, different flowers and plants are welcome.

CBK_SlothPillow-650px

7. Any aha moments during MATS you would like to share?

YES. My aha moment was a humble one, but huge for me. I have struggled a bit as a solo mom raising my son alone, with envy: I would see others post things in the Facebook group like “hubby took the kids all day so I could make art!” and feel a sinking feeling. I only looked at what I didn’t have and thinking I could never achieve without the same support / financial infrastructure / art supplies / studio / whatever. Some time during 2015 MATS courses, this changed for me. I had this huge AHA moment that those petty comparisons are meaningless. I have to embrace my own situation and make art from where I’m at today. And once I did that, all the side-line glances and envious frustration I felt… *poof* …vanished.

8. What are your key successes since taking a MATS class?

The most obvious success for me has been joining a collective and working toward my first big trade show. But there are other successes too: I’ve got a Spoonflower shop with over 100 different designs for sale, and nearly every day someone favorites one of my designs. I’ve also put energy into creating a steady Instagram following. I won a lettering contest by Sakura International (the company that makes Micron pens), which was a wonderful personal accomplishment – and they sent me a bunch of art supplies!

CBK_XmasPapers-650px

9. How would you describe taking a MATS class to a fellow artist looking to develop their art

I would encourage people to take MATS as a creative improvement process. It’s all about what you put into it. Go into it thinking you’ll come out improved, and you will!

10. What is your dream gig for your artwork?

My ultimate pie-in-the-sky gig would be creating a collection for Marimekko.

DSC_1469

Here I am in Brighton, England for the filming of an e-course.

I’ve made my living as a creative entrepreneur since 1984, and I have a lot to say about making a living as an artist. I’ve taught thousands of students, mentored dozens of artists that I represent, and had my own art career, so I have plenty of opinions. I’ve seen the good, bad, ugly and weird.

Lilla-Life-Q&A-downloadable

My students in Make Art That Sells e-courses have asked me hundreds of questions over the years, and I’ve put some of my favorite Q & A’s on a free downloadable for you, called Lilla on Life as an Artist.

I find that I am often asked the same questions over and over. Here are some of the top ones I’m asked, and I answer them for you in the downloadable PDF:
Q: I am my own harshest critic. How do I stop this from taking over?
Q: In the beginning when you are struggling to make ends meet from your art, it is easy to feel pulled in many directions—the need to make art, the pressure to sell it, the importance of promotion, the demands of admin, etc. How do you manage your time in a way that allows you to move forward?
Q: How do you deal with envy?
Q: What happens when an artist is facing a difficult situation, things like sickness, or loss, or financial issues? How we can keep creating with joy in difficult times?
Q: Don’t you think that making art that sells is selling out?

Click here to get the answers to the questions.

Alumni success ‘spotlight’ interview with Emma Allsup

profile-pic-emma-allsupToday, we have an interview with Emma Allsup from emmajayne-designs. Emma has taken MATS A and Bootcamp.

Tell us a little about how you got started in art and design.

Since I was a young girl, I’ve always loved painting and drawing. I remember whenever there was any opportunity to add drawings to my school work, I’d be in my element. I used to produce full-page illustrated diagrams in my science books! My love for art and design simply grew from there on.

Lilla Always says “People buy your joy”. What brings you joy?

Hmmm… this is tricky one, because I enjoy seeing amazing art which inspires me to create my own designs. I get huge satisfaction from the entire design process, from initial research and drawings, through to developing my ideas to a final design. Of all of these, the aspect of my work which brings me the most joy is when I play around with colour combinations, techniques, design layouts and generally having fun with it all.

kitsch-pouch-gift-emma-allsup

Which is your favourite market(s) to design for and why!

My favourite markets to design for would have to be fashion and gift-wrap. I love producing patterns, which I enjoy visualizing on fashion garments and wrapped presents. With fashion, anything goes, and I love that, because it means that I get to exercise my versatility and imagination.

I also enjoy creating standalone illustrations for gifts, because of the variety of the facets which make up a gift, from the gift itself, to the packaging. Packaging layouts can be wildly different from product to product, and that variation keeps everything interesting, and provides a wonderful challenge.

What are you working on currently?

At present, I am working on Christmas gift wrap for children and babies. They’re so much fun to produce and I’m really enjoying coming up with cute characters. I don’t have many designs for that age-group in my portfolio and I will be adding more in the coming months.

I’ve also recently produced a range of bird illustrations and logo for one of the UK’s best known zoos. My next project will be to create different bird poses for an animation, and I am really excited about that!

holiday-ornamnets-emma-allsup

What are some of the key things you have learnt from the MATS experience?

One of the key things I’ve learned from the course is to just relax and have fun! It’s surprising how easy your mind works when you’re enjoying yourself and are totally engrossed in what you’re doing. I’ve learned to open my mind more, and to let my creativity take the lead. I have learned that I love seeing variety in my work, and also that I prefer working in mixed media.

I’ve learnt that when a design is finished, that presentation is also a key point. People will love your designs but it adds an extra perspective to see your design in context. I only realized the importance of this when I was completing briefs in Bootcamp.

How have the classes helped your artwork evolve/ grow?

I have been trying out a number of techniques which were very new to me. I have also pushed myself and really focused on the end result. At the forefront of my mind I have made sure that when designing, my work is clear, has a commercial edge and looks fun.

1920s-colouringbook-by-emma-allsup

Any aha moments during MATS you would like to share?

As mentioned previously, I realized that I love to see variety in my work. 
I was actually rather surprised how many people liked my work, as I was afraid that it might be a bit too ‘niche’.

What are your key successes since taking a MATS class?

I now have a design role in a busy, commercial studio and have had a few interesting jobs through freelancing. I won an international scarf design competition too, for which I submitted a design for a ‘Summer’ themed silk scarf. I’ve also been successful in selling my designs on different products on Society6. Overall, these are four big successes and I can say that it’s all happened as a result of taking the MATS courses.

How would you describe taking a MATS class to a fellow artist looking to develop their art?

When starting any brief, it’s sometimes difficult knowing where and how to start. In a Lilla Rogers MATS class, you begin with a ‘mini’ exercise. This is a deliberately short exercise, as a warm up and so as to not overwhelm you. I find this a very useful exercise, because the warm-up gets your creative juices going! In fact, I have found it so useful, that I have actually started using that method for my own projects. Next, you are then given an assignment which you can take in any direction you so wish. You have the freedom to develop your mini and any other ideas you have. There’s a Facebook group, where you can get support and share your ideas. People in your class are very friendly and there’s always someone to help you, if you need it. Besides the other students, Lilla gives you handouts about the market you’re designing for. There’s such a positive and creative vibe within the class. Lilla encourages you do be original and do what makes you shine.

Vintage-Kitchen-emma-allsup

What is your dream gig for your artwork?

I’d absolutely love to see my work on different products, being sold in high end department stores, plus, I know a lot designers go to Surtex and this is definitely something I’d like to take part in, in the near future. With a lot of hard work and dedication, I’d also love to produce my own patterns for garments, possibly designing some of the clothing too. I also have another dream gig, which sees me creating my own stationery company. Stationery design is another of my all-time favourite things to do.

NEW THIS YEAR: Get 5 professional-level trend boards! Read more here.

I’m delighted to create a series of trend boards for you for Bootcamp 2017.

Why trend boards? Sometimes it’s hard to know what to draw. What topics sell? What are clients looking to see?

My trend boards give you inspiration and focus so that your work has greater marketability. Each month you’ll get a theme and a color palette. The board is loaded with images for you to study. While they may look simple, you can discover lots of good stuff.

It actually takes time to learn how to use a trend board! I have purchased many over the years. Do you know that most professional trend books are several thousand dollars? They are great for companies but don’t really work for illustrators. Why? Because they tend to  focus more  on a vibe. In fact, they show lots of products that don’t even have art on them, like a plain vase or a sofa. That’s great for manufacturers that make products, many of whom don’t buy art. I found that I needed to make my own trend boards for my artists, and I wanted to show WHAT to draw—very specific subject matter—and for specific markets that I know buy lots of illustration. This is what I’ve done for you. I go over the specific market, list imagery ideas (what to draw) and provide text suggestions (what words to write).

I sincerely hope you enjoy them and find them beneficial!
