In 2017, I decided to really give it a go at being a freelance illustrator. I’m continuing this goal in 2018. I recently picked up Lisa Congdon‘s book Art, Inc. and it has seriously made me rethink many conceptions I had about a career making art.
Coming from a fine art background (I have a BFA in painting) is ideologically pretty different than if I had pursued an illustration education – but the reality is that I have bills to pay, I want to continue my nomadic lifestyle, and I’m pretty good at drawing. I’m thrilled to get paid to draw everyday, and I still work on many (too many) of my own personal projects. Here’s to continuing the work in 2018.
