Today we’d like to introduce you to Ashlee Beadle.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I’ve always enjoyed creating art and telling stories and chose to continue through with that at Montserrat College of Art.
While in college I explored a number of ways and mediums to try and convey what I wanted to say, until my senior year when I was taught about journalistic work.
It helped me greatly when I was working on my first book and moving forward.
Has it been a smooth road?
Being just out of college there will always be the ups and downs. It’s always difficult trying to make time for personal art without getting in your own way.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Ash Beadle Illustration story. Tell us more about the business.
As of right now I’m freelancing and looking for editorial job opportunities. I’m always working on new illustrations to sell in my online shop and to promote myself, and am known mostly for my self-published book, Coping Mechanisms.
My book, like much of the work I create, centers around being an adult woman with mental illness in the current age. I try as much as I can to talk about important topics for women or just everyday occurrences that might not be talked about as much.
How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
Styles and trends will always rotate through the times, but I’m unsure of where we are currently headed. Popular art styles will gradually shift, but I feel as though we are at the peak of this time now so any changes or trends will be slow to shift.
