Yay! Today I’m thrilled to have my very first podcast guest: Claudine Hellmuth!
Claudine’s an author, illustrator and designer, who’s been featured in The New York Times, The Martha Stewart Show, HSN, HGTV and more! I first picked up her first book waaay back, 10 years ago! I was delighted to talk to (and learn from!) someone who’s navigated many opportunities and options(licensing, publishing, etsy shop) in her art career and how she gets it all done.
We talk about:
- The path to her first book deal
- The truth of licensing deals
- The importance of celebration in your art career
- The difference between making for committee and making what you love
- “People buy your joy”
- How Claudine spends her days (and the productivity “rule” she breaks)
- Being the World’s Best Boss
- What we’re enthusiastic about! (It may surprise you!)
Links we discussed:
- Claudine’s first book
- Her line of paints with Ranger + embroidery kits
- The ADORABLE cupcake oven printable kit
- IDoneThis – a tool for feeling better about your day
- World’s Best Boss Mug
- The new class: Composition for Collage
- Claudine’s Pinterest board of recipes (and mine)
