Thoughts on becoming a pro Illustrator - Part III
Part III
Topics this time:
- How to work together with clients
- How to filter good jobs from bad ones
I have decided to collect  questions and make an extra journal with FAQ.s so that the editorials won´t be so cluttered.
____________________________________________

Hi folks!
Welcome back to the 3rd part of the little series about experiences I have made over the years since I work as an Illustrator.
Most of the stuff can also be adapted to any other creative job like writing, making music, etc of course. The creativity is just the same, but goes into various directions.
All I have written here is based on my own experiences  and those methods do work for me. That means not that it is the ultimative solution for everyone, but maybe it might be helpful for one or another artist in future.
I will continue it when I find the time. If you have questions, please ask them in the comments! They are much welcome and I can answer them in future articles.

Hey everyone, I just realized it's been 11 months seen my last journal...

A lot of things have changed since then. I'm finishing my 4 years of studies in precisely 2 weeks, I've been doing a couple of cool freelance gigs ( like Steve Aoki's last clip, "Singularity" for instance). Aarklash: Legacy should come out soon hopefully and I'll be able to show more stuff.

Strangely, I've found this year that Facebook was more practical for me to share stuff, and warm people of my livestream programs. In case you haven't added it yet, here it is :

www.facebook.com/GeoffreyErnau…

I'd strongly advise following me on there, as I share a lot of sketches and other fun stuff that I don't post on DA.

I'm sorry if I haven't been able to answer your comments as much as in the past, but things have been pretty hectic this year overall, and I've found myself really busy and to be honest, a lot stressed with all the work and pressure of having to now find an in-house job in a cool studio.

Thanks again for the awesomeness everyone, without the DA community I wouldn't be half as far as I am today.
My studies are now almost finished, I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, and will hopefully finally be able to work on really cool stuff.

And that my friends, is mostly thanks to your constant support <3

Much love,

Your friend ,

Geoffrey.
