Welcome to CYOO, a practical newsletter on making art.
You want a thriving artistic practice, but navigating the how is hard. Where do you begin? What tools do you use? When do you carve out the time? Are you really cut out for this?
My name is Carolyn Yoo and I’m an illustrator & writer living in Brooklyn, NY. I’ve grappled with many difficulties of developing a sustainable creative practice over the years. In this newsletter I’ll share my experiences & process as I grow as an illustrator as well as my tips for how to work mindfully and joyfully while making the art you’d like to make.
