Like many full time creatives, Ana Victoria Calderon was living off of the combined income of a few separate sources when she got started teaching online – sales of art prints from her Etsy store, licensing artwork to companies like Hallmark and Papyrus, and teaching in person workshops. “I knew that I wanted to start teaching online, but YouTube was difficult. People had a lot of questions but there was no way I could answer this stuff in the comments section.”
While living in London and working as a web designer, Hayden Aube was mostly thinking about one thing –– how to work on Illustration full-time. “The whole time I was working as a web designer, in the back of my head I knew it wasn’t what I wanted.
