angry-uni-WEB

Lizzie Mary Cullen has just had a well said rant about clients paying their invoices late or not at all, and how it is much more than just an inconvenience. If you commission illustrators, please pay attention and have a read. You hire them because you love what they do, so please show them enough respect to pay them on time.

Words of wisdom from 3×3‘s Charles Hively, the Jedi Master of working with art directors and quality illustration. Charles is going to be running a 3-hour webinar which will be a bitesized version of the full-day workshop he held in London, October 2014. It’s $50, but worth every penny and they’ll be a Q&A.

We’ll discuss the most important times of the year to send out materials, and the months that are a waste of time and money. We’ll talk about the best day and time of day to contact a prospective client. We’ll explore what to put in a subject line that will get an art director to open your email. And what months you should plan a visit to New York and how to set up appointments. And we’ll share with you the materials that come across our desk from both photographers and successful illustrators. Learn from their success. – Charles Hively

The webinar will be on the October 24th, 9am-12pm EDT and you’ll find tickets via Eventbrite at http://tiny.cc/3x3webinar.
