Let's become a visual storyteller
Becoming a visual storyteller is like becoming an artist. You're goal isn't to become a graphic artist. You want to create suspense, interest and motivate a viewer to take action. This means you'll have to understand what components active the imagination of a viewer and make a stunning illustration.

Become a visual storyteller
What is visual storytelling?
There are so many great graphic artists. To really make a difference you need to become a visual storyteller.
A visual storyteller
With a background in psychology, aka mindreader, I'm obsessed with understanding how we as human behave and interact. What makes us go to the museum, interested in a certain event, read a particular article or love a particular painting?
Is it text, or is there a certain illustration that captures our attention? There are numerous ways of capturing attention. The best way is to spark the viewers imagination. As humans we all have our own perception on the world. It gives us security and safety because it predicts the world around us. As a graphic artist we should use that perception or imagination to our advantage.
Visual storyteller mentorship
I want to help you with creating visual stories. And to do this I want to teach you the components of visual storytelling. The best way to become a master is to understand why an artist makes certain decisions. Which means you'll have to understand why an illustration is build in a certain way.
To get me a as a mentor I want to invite you to Patreon. Patreon is a platform where you can choose your speed in development. You pick a certain 'tier' or level of subscription and get a certain attention from me in return.
If you're a busy person, baby steps are the best. You'll get the chance to understand how an illustration is build digitally and you can figure out on your own how to use these steps in you own way. But if you really want to accelerate then maybe somehting like runners high or long jumps works for you.
Either way choose what works best for you and hopefully see you soon!
