Illustrator Contest

Artist and illustrator Holli Conger has been an inspiration to me for years. She is an extremely talented artist, intelligent businesswoman and mom. Because she is such a great person who really wants to help people like me struggling in the illustration maket she is having an awesome contest. She is giving away a 3-month illustration marketing consultation.

This would be an absolutely amazing opportunity for me. I really want to win, so put out the positive vibes for me.

I have been pursuing my passion to become a professional illustrator and have had no success on my own. No interest for publishers, agents, etc. Nothing has clicked yet. I have even been considering self publishing just so that I can see my artwork on something tangible. Juggling motherhood, creating art, marketing myself and getting rejections is getting very discouraging and frustrating. I know there is a place for my style of art I just can’t seem to find it or anyone willing to take a chance on me.

I love to create and it is really important to me that my daughter can see one day that mommy is a working artist…. that it can be done.

Fingers crossed!
