Inkygoodness Pep Talks: Book Now for Summer 2022

We're now taking bookings for Pep Talks; a 60 minute 1:1 mini coaching session with Inkygoodness founder Lisa Hassell - designed to kick start your creative career.

We understand that staying motivated isn’t always easy, and right now finding the energy and enthusiasm to be creative can feel stressful, confusing and just plain hard work!

Over the last 12 months we have given hundereds of portfolio crits to artists and illustrators; yet we have found that increasingly these conversations centre around lack of confidence, lack of focus and direction, imposter syndrome, and anxiety and worries about how to get into the industry. We’ve spoken to students, graduates and professionals alike and realised there was more we could do.

So, we launched Inkygoodness Pep Talks to give artists and illustrators like you the opportunity discuss your challenges in more depth, provide motivation and inspiration and provide strategies and support to build your freelance creative career in 2022.

Each session is priced at £49* for a 60 minute session and includes:

    • 1:1 Critical feedback on your creative work and how to align this with your career goals.
    • Insight and advice on how best to build your social media presence and increase engagement on platforms like LinkedIn and Instagram
    • Advice on how to develop and build a professional portfolio
    • Valuable insight into what art directors look for
    • Motivation, inspiration and supportive discussion
    • Focused strategy and roadmap to set you up on your journey as an illustrator
    • Recording of our session + action plan!

Open to recent graduates, emerging illustrators or those who are looking to change their career path. Whether you’re feeling stuck, have lost your confidence or just need some valuable insight on your freelance practice, our 1:1 sessions will give you the tools you need to re-ignite your creativity and find renewed clarity and focus.
