New Class: Use Trello to Manage Your Illustration Projects
Let me tell you a funny now/not funny at the time story. A few years ago when I was new to illustrating children’s book, my first big project was to illustrate a series of six books for an educational publisher. Yay! Super!
Confident in my glorious organization habits, I embarked on the project absolutely certain I could work on all six books at once. No problem.
Spoiler alert: there was a problem! I neglected to write down one of the final art deadlines and didn’t realize it until less than two weeks before the book was due. Yikes!
I worked long hours and turned the book in on time, but I promised myself I’d find a new way to manage my book projects because maybe my organizational systems could use an overhaul.
Enter Trello, a project management app that has helped me create a system for tracking my deadlines, my progress on each project, and even my weekly to-do lists.
These days I’m generally working on 4-12 book projects at one time along with smaller projects and creating classes and other content. It’s a lot to balance and Trello helps me do that. All my information for each project is in one place. All my deadlines are listed in one place. Trello has made my life so much easier.
I love it so much, I just launched a new Skillshare class all about it!
