48 - Tom Froese: Being a Creative is Still Hard Work
This week I spoke to illustrator and Top Skillshare Teacher, Tom Froese. In our conversation, we talked about his process and how he developed his style of illustration, how he built an audience on Instagram, and the behind the scenes of creating a Skillshare class. Tom not only shares his illustrations online, but also shares his thoughts through micro-blog posts in his captions, and shares his process on Skillshare. After teaching in a University, Tom wasn't sure teaching was for him, but when Skillshare reached out to him to teach a course, he accepted and now is a top Skillshare teacher. There's a lot of awesome work from Tom that you can check on across a lot of different platforms so be sure to connect with him at the links below. And be sure to keep your eyes open for his upcoming Skillshare course focused on how to choose colors as a digital artist.
