I want to be a freelancer in illustration and lettering. There’s been plenty of dabbling over the years but never a full commitment. So I’m going to commit. And work on it. And document as much as possible.
This began (I guess) a while ago, when I bought the domain name and used it for a portfolio-of-all-trades. Recently, my spouse and I moved cross-country and I now have the time and resources to focus on working on not being scared and on doing the job I want to do.
I signed up for a Passion to Paid class with Lauren Hom and have since been honing my portfolio and working on building a passion project that focuses on (magically) illustration and lettering.
Local markets scare the crap out of me so I’m just gonna get the passion project out first. THEN worry about a regular income.
You must do the thing you think you cannot do. -Eleanor Roosevelt
I’m gonna’ keep trying to document this journey. And I’m going to try to keep moving on this journey and not chicken out.
