So you want to make a living as a children’s illustrator, but wonder how you’ll fill in the gaps when things are slow…

For a lot of illustrators it means finding different streams of income within the illustration field, but it’s hard to know how to do that if you don’t know the possibilities. In this webinar we’ll explore one of those possibilities—licensing. Longtime children’s illustrator Joy Allen will share her 20 years of experience licensing illustrations for ornaments, decor and other uses. Come learn about the types of licensing markets, the ins and outs of licensing, the process, and how to get started. Joy’s expertise in successfully making illustration her source of income is invaluable and she’ll give you insights into how you can use licensing to supplement your income. Here’s your chance to ask a seasoned professional some questions!*
