About the Instructor
Introducing the Creator, Dion MBD
Hi, friends! I am an illlustrator Dion MBD. I create images for publishing, editorial, and commercial clients such as Scholastic, The New York Times, MacMillan, Medium, HarperCollins, Sudio, and many more. Having my unique style of drawing has helped me be more trustful and professional artist because my art itself shows what kind of person I am.
I love and enjoy every moment of my career. I am hoping to share this feeling with anyone who loves art, and who wants to visually express their thoughts and experience. Hence, I joined with Class101 to create my digital concept art class.
Q: How did you first start doing what you do?
I went to Ringling College in Florida and to help pay for the tuition, I began taking on freelance projects. During my first two years, my portfolio did not have a unique look and they led me to get jobs that were not too rewarding, both financially and personally.
I decided to spend my final year developing a new body of work, one that has images with subject matters that I really cared about. This portfolio got me my first job right after graduation, creating a book cover for Scholastic right after graduating. People started sharing my works online and I began getting constant freelance projects. Without realizing, a year passed and I managed to build a client list that includes names such as Scholastic, The New York Times, MacMillan, Medium, HarperCollins, and many more.
