Hello Holly, wonder if you could help with a question? I want to design graphics for T-shirts to sell on Spreadshirt. Not sure if this is possible to do. I am an Engineer but graduate long time ago and only took drafting. Thanks.

Enjoyed your video I think you’re doing a great job and it was nice to hear your story. We write game changer articles for American pride magazine. I think that would be an amazing place to feature your story. Here’s the pitch page if you want to write in. http://www.americanpridemagazine.com/coverstory/

I love your videos I haven’t really been thrilled with skill share I have been using udemy which instead of doing it monthly like skill share you buy the courses you want and then buy them. If you don’t like it then you can get a refund within the first month

Sorry but no, this is so wrong. Don't teach yourself graphic design, it ends with a "designer" that sucks or with a "designer" that does the same that everyone else is doing. Go to college and study it properly, no ones gonna give you the chance to try something absolutely new, absolutely your style and at the same time let you know what's wrong about it or how it could be better. You wouldn't trust a doctor who learned all by his own right? Then don't trust a graphic designer that did that

Wish there was a video like this to teach myself Corporate Law

Tenaya King says:

Udemy is a good website to fins classes. And sometimes you can talk directly with the teachers. Downside is that each class you have tp pay for. Upside there are always sales for the classes
