Alessia Landi Fashion Illustration live sketching Piaget

A few of my followers on Instagram and fellow fashion illustrators asked me a lot of questions about my live sketching events lately. How do I find the confidence to draw a portrait in public in 5 minutes? Did I do any special training? How did I decide my rates?
