Leah Goren: Illustrator and Surface Pattern Designer
Introducing the incredibly talented illustrator, and surface pattern designer Leah Goren. Leah's clients include Anthropologie, Nike Women, the New York Times, Ban.do, Revlon, Penguin Random House, and Urban Outfitters to name a few and Leah is the author of the incredible book Besties and co-author of Ladies Drawing Night.
In this episode, Leah is opening up about what it's been like to find success in her art at such a young age (at only 29, Leah started working with Anthropologie before she graduated from art school), what the role of the internet and social media played in the development of her career, how she negotiates her partnerships and the business end of her art, what it was like to see huge brands ripping off a print she created for Anthropologie, and we talk about what advice Leah has for aspiring artists and creatives.
