Make Art That Sells by Lilla Rogers: My Review from Week 1

Above is the vintage-inspired kitchen fabric I created for the first week of "Make Art That Sells."
Perhaps this is a bit too much information, but one way I can tell that I'm really excited about something is I don't even want to take a pee break I'm having so much fun. Right after college, this was what took up many of my evening hours and caused me to sit at my desk for hours on end without a break. Yes, I am a total nerd.

Which is why I can say without a doubt that I am really, really enjoying the licensing class I'm taking with Lilla Rogers and Beth Nichols since my "homework" has been keeping me happily glued to my computer until the wee hours of the night. To be honest, it's kind of surprising. I am quite picky when it comes to classes, and the last big one I took (with Marie Forleo) was not a great fit. That, combined with the fact that just about "everyone" I know loved Lilla and Beth's first class (yes, I know it's counter-intuitive…but when "everyone" loves something, I tend to be skeptical) means I went in with very low expectations.

A large part of the reason I wanted to take "Make Art That Sells" was to get a bit of my art mojo back. For most the past year I've been focusing on selling and marketing my printed collage sheets and completing my 100-day-quest. Making art took a back seat, even though it's one of my favorite parts of piddix. So I am just thrilled that designing is once again front and center and getting me all excited. Tonight I find out what my second assignment will be at 1 am and I am literally counting down the minutes….33….32….31… I'll hopefully post again once the class is all finished. But so far, so very good.

Thanks ladies. Not sure how I'm going to squeeze everything in, but at least it's happy things taking up all my time.
