It's interesting and helpful to see Leah's process, and she makes keeping a sketchbook seem fun, useful, and accessible. I especially appreciated that she showed how sketches she's made in the past have translated to various products, or have helped her to connect to brands and further paid work. Definitely a class worth taking!
Love. Love. Love the opportunity to hear about her sketchbook. Enjoyed and inspired to do what I enjoy. I like the part she shared how she painted or created, and others became interested in her work. I really enjoyed hearing her thoughts about how she creates patterns and challenges herself with new ideas. Very inspiring!
Great Class Thak you!!
