To celebrate I’ve decided to give away 10 SketchingNow coupons as a way of celebrating an incredible decade.
Many of you have been a big part of my journey over this period (or even before that) so I want to pause a moment and say a huge thank you!
It is a complete understatement to say that without the support and encouragement from my online friends and followers I would never have made the big change in my life.
From the moment I started sharing my work online (back in the days of Flickr) I was constantly blown away by how motivating a few supportive comments could be – how much they inspired me to keep going – to keep growing and developing my skills. I also received a lot of incredible encouragement from fellow Urban Sketchers to start teaching.
(Aside: If you are someone who is afraid to post your work online, I can attest to the fact that amazing things can happen if you share your journey!)
Ten years ago when I decided to have a break from architecture I didn’t initially intend it to be permanent! I just wanted 6 months to have a break and start to do a little teaching. But being free of a day job meant that opportunities started flowing in and after a few months I knew that there would be no going back. It was very up and down at the start, but it all changed when I launched my first SketchingNow Course Foundations!
In many ways my story breaks all the rules – I didn’t have a side hustle and a part-time income coming in before I quit my day job. But I did have a lot of momentum from somewhat obsessively sketching and sharing my adventures as a hobby and this is what sustained me for the first rocky 2 years.
I can see some more reminiscing coming in the next few weeks 🙂 but for today I just want to say thank you and share more about my giveaway. So…
I’m giving away
5 x $100USD Coupons
5 x $50USD Coupons
which can be used when purchasing any
SketchingNow course or bundle
Ten winners will be randomly selected and will be notified via email on Friday 2 December 2022. The coupons will be valid for 12 months so there is no pressure to use them in the coming week! 🙂
Thanks again so much for being part of my amazing sketching adventure – whether from the early days or more recently.
It means a great deal to me that you are following along – whether via social media, my blog or inside a SketchingNow course. There are no words to describe how grateful I am!
