Illustrator Wesley Layne is on the Creatively Christian podcast, interviewed by Brannon Hollingsworth. Brannon and Wesley chat about the value of constructive criticism, pricing yourself correctly, and overcoming fear as a self-taught artist. He also tells his personal story about how he decided to pursue creativity full-time, including tips for others on making the jump. After years of working different jobs, from fixing printers to being a licensed financial advisor, Wesley Layne made a calculated leap to pursue his passion for illustration in February 2021. Since then, his client work has ranged from illustrating children's book covers, to simple logos. Wesley is a self-taught artist and is constantly looking for new projects to challenge himself, grow his experience, and most importantly, honor God with his abilities.
