If you’re like me and you love coloring, or if you’re into steampunk art, tattoos or just beards, then you’ll love to meet today’s guest, Steve Turner (A.K.A. Squidoodle).
I have had the pleasure of thoroughly picking Steve’s brain about his creativity and how he draws on his passion to run a successful illustration business. I first discovered Steve a few years ago on Facebook, where I stumbled across his Steampunk-style artwork and become an instant fan. Steve also designs coloring books, tattoos, prints, shirts and does beautiful commission pieces (for major book publishers and clothing companies).
Like many artists, his business is primarily based online and relies heavily on social media and his website to attract new fans and clients. At the time of this interview, Steve has an Instagram following of over 11,000, and so I’ve asked him to share his journey and give us some tips on what he did to become a successful and in-demand artist.
