Find your style

Find your style - student project

Hello everyone!

My name is Katia Tsikrikonaki and I am a Graphics designer & Illustrator since 2013. The last couple of years I started feeling the need to find my own style / voice as an artist. I've tried many styles and mediums and I've been through many ups and downs.

Only recently I discovered Andy J. Pizza, who has inspired and helped me a lot through his podcasts. Listening to him is like having someone on my side giving me hope and that's awesome and exactly what I need during this period :)

I am really happy I watched this class. In the beginning, it was really hard for me to finish the first exercise. Many uncomfortable emotions came and I didn't know what to do with them. But I gave myself time, went through it with care and love and the result is very satisfactorily. For sure that class pushed me forward.

Thank you Andy!
