Hey, guys! In this episode, I am chatting with Nikolas Draper-Ivey, an illustrator, and writer in NY. His work includes Star Wars and Disney Characters re-imagined as Marvel Characters. He has recently worked on the cover for Marvel’s Black Panther album!
Get in touch with Nikolas
“Keep working, work as hard as you can and pray!”
- Nikolas attributes a lot of his success to his honest friends, family, and others who helped him, basically his support system!
- What most helped Nikolas was honesty and candor from the people who gave him feedback. Some of the most brutal feedback he got helped him to improve and level up
- Nikolas advises that you look for feedback from people who know their craft because then they light up this flame you have inside of you and there is high chance you will do something about it!
