EDIT: The programme is currently paused as I’ve fractured my thumb and have been advised complete rest. I hope to resume this in mid-2023.
I’m excited to announce that I will be running a mentorship programme on visual storytelling and creative thinking in 2023! Exact dates to come soon. The goal of this programme is to provide 1:1 support to creators looking to find/nurture ideas, develop strong narratives, and become confident storytellers. If you’re interested, please tell me more about yourself here and I’ll be in touch!
Over the last 11 years of running a comic strip, I’ve had several experiences that have shaped me as a creator. I’ve explored various themes and topics, experimented with styles to find the one that “fit”, and have pushed myself to be the most honest version of myself in my work. Something I’m still working on. I’ve experienced the highs and lows of social media, been a public figure in my twenties, done speaking events (TEDx, TiE), Comic Cons, and more.
But I’ve always come back to the thing that I love doing: creating words and pictures. My journey as a creator has been incredibly rewarding as it allows me to grow into a more independent individual, capable of things I had no idea about until I put pen to paper.
I often receive emails asking me for advice, guidance and feedback. I would love to pick creators whose talent I can invest in, as a way of passing on the investment that my mentors made in me.
Whom this programme is for
This programme is for creators with:
- A clear creative goal/vision in mind
- An existing creative venture (e.g., a comic strip, an illustration series, etc.)
- Time and mindspace to invest in the programme 🙂
Whom this programme is NOT for
Anyone looking for likes, comments, followers, or other temporary rewards. The aim of this specific programme is to help you use your art as a resource to grow your confidence and push your creative boundaries.
What the programme will cover
- Tailored exercises on storytelling
- 1:1 workshops/calls
- Workshops on how to find an audience and pitch to clients
- Links to useful guides and resources
How much will it cost? How much time will it take?
I’d love for you to fill out this form to tell me more about what you’re looking for, so I can shape the course content, fees, and schedule. Fees and dates will be announced in a few weeks’ time. 🙂
Please fill out the form by 15th Jan, 2023.
Looking forward to meeting you!
