Hello there. It’s been a while since I’ve last posted. Lots of changes in life but now that I have my own studio I’ve been concentrating on the business side of things and trying not too be too much of a drawing hermit. Which brings me to this exciting bit of news.. I’ve joined a […]
Yesterday I was offered my first job as an Illustrator as a result of sending out email promos over the summer. I was so excited. As a student, it’s hard to believe that people will hire you based on your work. I mean, that’s what we hope for but getting a pro job offer […]
