More Great Stuff

One of the wonderful things about being an artist these days is that there are so many free, or cheap, resources available. It’s how I educated myself on my journey. While I love teaching, there’s only so much I can cover on my own and so I’ve compiled my favorite articles, websites, tools, videos, podcasts, etc to help you gain the same insights I’ve learned.

PS: If you have some suggestions of your own that may benefit people, don’t hesitate to suggest it through the contact form.

Here are my favorite go-to resources covering topics from editing, podcasting, marketing, hosting, finance, equipment, etc.
