Check out episode #19 of the Creative Queso Podcast with guest Andrea Pippins on…
Illustrator and Author Andrea Pippins
I knew of Andrea back when she was trend spotting on her blog Fly Girl and I was still a member of the Naughty Secretary Club. She has always had an impeccable eye for color, art and style. Eventually after a masters degree, jobs at Hallmark and Nickelodeon and teaching on the college level she has found her sweet spot as an illustrator. So much so that she was the keynote speaker at Icon in 2018.

Lessons Learned as a Freelance Illustrator
When Andrea is not illustrating her own books she is illustrating things like this amazing article for Good Company called 20 Lessons Learned About Money as a Freelance Illustrator. She has also illustrated two books for Jamia Wilson including Step Into Your Power and Young Gifted and Black. Plus countless other illustration gigs for places like National Museum of African American History and Culture, Lenny Letter, Essence Magazine and even ESPN. So she knows a thing or two about making money as freelance illustrator.
