Welcome to CYOO, a newsletter on building a creative practice.
You want to make art, but navigating the how is hard. When do you carve out the time? Where do you start? What tools do you use? Are you really cut out for this?
My name is Carolyn Yoo and I’m an illustrator and artist living in Brooklyn, NY. I’ve grappled with many difficulties of developing a creative practice for 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 more joyfully & make the art you’d like to make.
