Free tutorial for creatives of every level to learn how to illustrate and place text.
Recently I've heard from more struggling creatives and freelance artists than successful ones. When I was up and coming I had no one to annoy except my mate Shane, who lives 1000kms away! (Thank God for Skype!)
Instagram wasn't around back then so I didn't have the power of DM's to reach out and pick the brains of my inspirations! (That's a conversation for another day) What I'm saying is, the connection and opportunity we have now is infinitely ridiculous!
When Instagram came about and I started reaching out to my biggest inspirations and asking about their process and techniques all I received were unopened messages or even worse... "Seen"... I think we all know what that feels like right? No? Just me haha (To be fair a bunch of my inspirations did respond and have since become friends - but they were seriously the minority)
So I thought to myself, 'Ryan how many people are there in the world?' 7 BILLION! 'Ryan do you seriously think that out of 7 billion people you are the only one with this set of skills?'
Obvious Answer: NO! Therefore I thought - 'Why not start sharing what I know and adding value to someone else's life?'
So I begun with in my Instagram stories by sharing some of my process and giving away tips and tricks I've picked up along the way. The response - INSANE! I was so overwhelmed by people thanking me, asking for more, sharing how it had helped them + so much more. Pretty rewarding feeling to be honest!
Since then I've been wanting to create a YouTube account (seriously this time, no more games) and I have. Subscribe HERE
Here is my very first tutorial to the world. It's a short quick video that will equip any creative, beginner or advanced with the secret tool (that shouldn't be secret) that's helped me shape my style!
