Description

This month's meeting is FREE thanks to Adobe Systems.

You may have made some resolutions for 2018 already, but you can join us in January to get some help from our presenters and other members.

Freelancing: Many artists look to challenge themselves in their work outlook, setting out to find different jobs around Los Angeles or around the world. Breaking away from your regular position to find freelance work can be daunting. Maybe you're already a freelancer and would like more advice on how to manage your time (and money) more effectively. CM is here to give you some advice and talk about his new book.

Personal Projects: Making time for your personal projects this year? You should. Those projects aren't just a way to develop creatively, but they may also contain hidden potential that can help your career. Michael White will come and talk about his creative journey from personal to professional projects.

2018 kicks off another year of DMALA monthly meetings - see you there!
