Happy new year, fellow homeschoolers!
Let’s kick off 2022 with some career enrichment for your student!
In this month’s episode of “Amanda Interviews…!”, we’re talking with book cover artist Lyndsey Lewellen. Lyndsey has designed over 200 book covers since 2012. She has experience with photo editing as well as designing with hand-drawn art.
If your student is looking for a way to make money with their art skills, Lyndsey has some excellent advice to offer.
