The following post is an interview I conducted with a fellow Yen Press Talent Search finalist, Mira Cervantes. Earlier, I decided to be proactive and feature other artists from the first search on my blog. I think they deserve to have a spotlight shone on their accomplishment and hard work.

Here are some links I’ve compiled from artists who’ve completed successful campaigns.

The following post is an interview I conducted with a fellow Yen Press Talent Search finalist, Lily Cernak.

These three topics seem to come up together so I’m lumping them in this post. These are some of the articles/blog posts and websites that I’ve found useful regarding these topics.
