What the WHAT?!! We're NOT going to announce our Kickstarter ANYWHERE online for the first TWENTY-FOUR HOURS after it goes live!!!

We're doing something crazy.

When our multi-book KICKSTARTER launches NEXT MONTH (on a top-secret date) we're NOT going to announce it ANYWHERE for the first TWENTY-FOUR HOURS after it goes live! NO blog posts about it, NO tweets linking to it, NO Instagrams listing the tiers, NO tumblrs showing the books ... NOTHING!

The ONLY WAY to get in and back the campaign on that crucial first day (when many of the limited numbers of pieces of original art may be be snapped up) is to JOIN THE LAUNCH DAY MAILING LIST!

Just mail "Add me, Lorenzo!" to misterlorenzoboy@yahoo.co.uk to be on the list!

What is #SkillUpSunday?

Here's the FULL DETAILS of just WHAT #SkillUpSunday is, and WHY we're doing it!

As you know, I'M VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT SHARING CREATIVE SKILLS ONLINE FOR FREE, and as such I want to begin a movement where EVERY SUNDAY we all FILL THE INTERNET with accessible, useful, empowering FREE art education. 

Over the past few years I've seen many of the best creative teaching resources being LOCKED AWAY BEHIND PAYWALLS, which is excluding millions of artists from being able to access quality teaching online. At the same time, the landscape of how people consume the web has changed, with many spending the majority of their time online on social media sites, which have VERY FEW great resources for creative learning.

I want to change that, by making FREE bite-sized, social-media-friendly, high quality online creative learning FOR EVERYONE,created BY EVERYONE, available FOREVER. 

No matter what type of or art or creativity you enjoy, I'm hoping you'll join me EVERY SUNDAY in bringing a wealth of learning to social media! 

"Paywalls DOWN, skills UP!"

Now scroll down for our handy tutorial on how it's all going to go down! #SkillUpSunday!
