FROM ART
TO BUSINESS, THE UNCONVENTIONAL WAY


Welcome ♥ Becoming an artist sometimes seems so abstract, and often, we don’t know how to start or where we’re heading… but we’ve got you covered!

You’ll LOVE our free resources (YouTube & Blog), designed to help you evolve as an illustrator with insights into the more obscure behind-the-scenes aspects like growing your audience, finding your clients, selling your merch, .... And if you’re serious about taking your precious craft one step further with deeper business insights, while being part of an amazing creative community of like-minded people who support each other, you better join the Academia’s Members Club, coming in January! Let’s get you from Art to Business!

behind this project

SABRINA KAUFMANN

I'm Sabrina Kaufmann, an independent artist from Luxembourg. I’ve been in the manga industry for over a decade, and my areas of expertise are teaching, publishing, conventions and commissions – but my deepest love lies with entrepreneurship and finding innovative solutions to market, monetize and influence with illustration.

It took me years of trial and error to figure out how to make a decent living in this field which is quite atypical around here – but it doesn’t need to take as long for you! I’ve been there and know exactly what you’re going through, so the Academia is designed to address all the questions you might ask yourself as a budding artist :-)
