Welcome to ...

THE RULE-BREAKING BUSINESS COMMUNITY FOR CREATIVE REBELS

The Illustrated.Community is for creative rebels or those who want to be one. Those who want to question the things society told them and break out of the always returning cycle of doubt! Let' s find your inner rebel and build a creative business with love, with impact, with income. 

Before I tell you about the details of the Illustrated.Community

I would like to share some important things with you.

 

I'm not here to sell you an expensive course making you pay for hours of meaningless content to make your dreams come true. 

I will not teach you things that you didn't know before or that you can't get anywhere else. There are millions of free resources out there that you can tap into to get the knowledge you need to grow the business you want. 

The only thing that I can do and that I created this community for is giving you a place where you can get the support and the love to get you through those processes and resources.

 

The Community is here to support you.

It is about...

... leaving the loneliness behind and having a community that supports each other.
... building a creative business you love and get an income from.

... working together instead of competing with each other.

... sharing the struggle as much as the successes and learning from them. 

... being just a little less scared about the future.

We learned over so many years in the creative business to be loners. To fight for ourselves instead of working together.  That other creatives are a thread and we need to be jealous of them. What if we could change that? What if our strength and superpower could come from love and support for each other?

So it is absolutely up to you if you want to read on and discover the magic of the Illustrated.Community where you learn about business while you have a community to support each other. I would love to see you in there. 

With Love, 

Andrea

There are a few things I can promise you when you join the Community:

👯‍♀️

COMMUNITY

OVER 

COMPETITION

In the creative business​ world we often have the idea that we have to do it all by ourselves. We are taught to be the loners, to see others as competition, to stay strong all by ourselves, never take any help by others, and definitely never ever let your guard down.

 

I want to challenge that idea because I believe that together we are stronger and more powerful than ever! 

I believe that with every new person that we collaborate and share stories with our creative business get's more successful and our lives a little richer. 

I promise to host a community full of creative rebels that will support you and challenge you on your journey. 

In the Community, we celebrate the successes as much as the failures. We share our stories so we can learn from each other.

Especially as the host of the community I will be there with you. I will be there to celebrate with you, to cry with you, to solve problems and to lift you up when you need it. 

I share what I experience now and the knowledge I gained through the years as a Graphic Designer, Gallery Owner, and Illustrator.

I promise you to share my experience, the tools I use, the books that had an impact, podcasts that are interesting and techniques that worked for me.

A LITTLE WISDOM

AND MOMENTS

OF HAPPINESS

YOUR VISION OF

A SUCCESSFUL

CREATIVE BUSINESS

There are as many paths to a successful life as there are humans on this planet. 

A success story is a story that is written by each and every person individually. For some it is having enough money to live, for others, it is being a billionaire. For one it is work and travel for others a cozy studio. For one it is creating art for others it is being an entrepreneur. 

I deeply believe that success is an individual choice and a slow-growing process. It is about the steps you take, the mistakes you make and the processes you discover. 

I promise to help you to find a success story that aligns with your ideas and values and help you to get there. 

Whenever you need a push in a direction, whenever you need experience from somebody else, whenever you are in a difficult situation the Community is there for you. 

 

We support each other wherever we can. We review each other illustration pieces, websites, portfolios, client contracts, difficult emails, terms and conditions and more. 

We lift each other up each step of the way so we can all illustrate the life each unique beautiful one of us wants. 

 

We promise to help you stay motivated and help you with every question you have, so you can illustrate your own world. 

💪🏾

MOTIVATION

AND

FEEDBACK

And because we are a community

you need to promise us something as well 

YOU WILL SHARE YOUR STORY

This community it is all about sharing your story. Sharing your process and work as much as listening to other illustrators' stories and learning from theirs. We are here to support each other. To share our vulnerable side in a safe space where you get support and help for your individual journey. So don't hide away all the time because the best way we learn is by learning from each other

 

Show up, be vulnerable, listen and share your story. 

YOU WILL ACCEPT IMPERFECTION

There is this awesome saying: Nobody is perfect. We know it, we heard it, but we don't believe it! NOBODY IS PERFECT including me and you and everybody else on this planet. You will make mistakes, will fall and stumble. That is how we ultimately learn. We try things out and try and retry, till we figured it out. So you share your imperfection and by embracing it somebody else is maybe able to avoid it.  

 

That does not make you a failure! NEVER! You are fabulous and we don't hear it enough that our "failures" are es much a learning experience as our successes. They are!

YOU WILL ASK FOR HELP

You are probably super quick in helping others. Being there and supporting everyone who needs it. That is absolutely amazing! But a very important part of the community is for you to be brave and to be vulnerable. To step out of your comfort zone and ask for help when you need it. Show the parts that you don't want people to see. That is the only way I and the community can help you. We can do a lot of things, but we can't read minds

 

So let us know what is going on and see how the community can help. 

I AM RIGHT THERE WITH YOU

I know that giving your trust in a community of strangers can be overwhelming and scary. Especially when you have a host who guides you. 

 

So you need to know that everything I share,

I experienced, I tried and used.

 

All the stories that I will share come from my own live. From more than 10 years experience in the creative field and 4 of them running my own gallery. From the ups and downs in business and the ups and downs that go hand in hand with it in life. From all the time and energy I invested in my own coaching and the things I used for my own business. All the imperfections and transformation of my life. 

That means that my stumbling, big beautiful ass is right there with you. I will share my own story as well as help you work on your creative business. A business that works perfectly for you. 

THIS COMMUNITY IS FOR YOU!

💕 WHAT MY COACHEES SAY 💕

It's worth every freaking penny. You have a way to bring it out of me. You knew! You were giving me that support that I needed. 

 

[ ... ] I think people have a huge misconception about what a coach is. I know I did! I thought its gonna be all about business and different things and it really wasn't- It was really about me growing as a person and you knowing exactly what questions to ask to get me to that part.

After working with Andrea I feel like I found my footing as an illustrator again.

 

I feel like I finally go into a direction instead of spinning around in circles. I feel a lot less lost. I feel like I have a plan. I feel like I will even be able to pull this off! 

I needed focus and clarification with too many project ideas swirling around in my head. And I was looking for more efficient marketing tools for my existing courses. What I got was all that and a totally new business branch, which I hadn’t anticipated at all!

I realized that I already am a businesswoman, but never truly owned that part of my work. Therefore I felt incompetent and tried to do it with the least amount of effort.

 

Now I know that how I present my work is also a creative process that can be fun. And that it serves my goal of reaching more people, which is a good thing! I own my expertise and skills which makes it easier to ask for fair payment.

It's just been a really amazing few weeks for me, digesting what you have said. [ ... ] your coaching has had a profound impact and shift for me in how I now relate to my confidence and my business. So, I really wanted to thank you!

 

Best investment I've ever done booking your course! 

Wanda Duffner

Illustrator

It helped me a lot that the curtain fell between us illustrators and we were able to say our problems openly and it is actually all the same although we come from different countries and with different backgrounds.

 

Sentences from the coaching calls in my head have been particularly persistent. Especially the part how to find your strength and that strength can also be imperfection. That helped me a lot to accept my style. 

I value all the sharing of knowledge [ in the community ]. I think it's great that we can pool all our collective experiences together so we can 'short cut' to solutions we are looking for. I also love working through the modules and the coaching calls.

 

I find it SO useful to really get insights into how other people work / structure their time / what their challenges and strengths are.

SO WHO IS BEHIND THIS?

My name is Andrea. I am a creative rebel. I learned to embrace my own body, my own mind and my own business. It helped me to break out of the system to build my own version of a successful life. 

 

I'm also the person who hosts the community. I'm an 🎨artist, a 👩🏼‍🚀feminist, a fat 🤴🏼queen, a 💕fiancé, an occasional plus-size 🦄 model, a 🐶puppy mommy, a 🥾wanderess and a total ☕️coffee addict. I have 10 years of experience in the creative industry as a graphic designer, illustrator and gallery owner. 

And I'm obsessed with superpowers ⚡️ that's why I celebrate them in each one of us! 💪🏾My personal superpower is empowering womxn. ❤️ So it probably does not come as a surprise that my guilty pleasure is watching every series and movie, and read every book that includes strong female 👯‍♀️ characters with any kind of superpower.
