“Don’t be afraid to give things a “go”!”
- Johanna studied both in a ‘brick school’ and online and the main advantage of the brick school that it helped her to come out of her shell because she was surrounded by other creative people
- Johanna learned early on not to be too hard on herself and take time to be curious and observe a lot of things around herself
- Johanna advises that you should always be kind to yourself and even if you have a bad day, just know you will have a good day later
- Art tools
- Wacom Cintiq 13 with Adobe Photoshop for client work
- iPad Pro with Apple Pencil and ProCreate App – sketchbook and doodling
Special thanks to Johanna for joining me today. See you next time!
