BECKY_MCCARTHY_FINALCOLLECTION_HD1_WK5For any artists and illustrators looking for a new challenge, I recommend taking a look at www.lillarogers.com. Lilla is an agent in the States who represents various artists, licensing their art to many different markets. Courses available on her website include Make Art that Sells and Bootcamp, and also the Global Talent Search competition. All are paid courses, but the benefits are huge. I’ve taken MAT’s A & B, both of which cover various markets, and took part in GTS 2014. Lilla has also launched a new course, Creating Collections in Home Decor, in conjunction with Margot Tantau, VP at Midwest-CBK, and I was fortunate enough to be in a postion to take part in this new course.

Week 1 – 5 took in a different substrate each week: Metal, Fabric, Glass, Ceramic and Wood. Hundreds of artists and illustrators took part and it was great to view the design process of others from sketches shown on the FB group, through to the final pieces submitted by everyone in the Flickr gallery. It’s a great opportunity to see how other professional artists work (in this class established illustrators such as Zoe Ingram and Flora Waycott took part, so we were able to benefit from seeing their creative process). It’s a really informative environment, with tips and reviews by Lilla & Margot, and also support from other artists. Each week saw new submissions from all involved with the option of presenting a full collection at the end of the course.
