This is what I scribbled yesterday morning.
In June, it will be ten years since I started working as an illustrator.
Many (MANY) mistakes were made, and things were thus learned. These are some of them.
I wrote this as part of a brain storm to make into a presentation I will be giving next week at a design conference in Spain called OFFF. I shared this on my Facebook, and got some good responses from young illustrators and new art school graduates. So, I decided to share this here as well.
Happy graduation to you all. Wishing you an adventure-filled next ten years (and more) to come ahead.
How I Got My First Job, a lecture at Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) will be held tomorrow evening, March 24th.

Well, this article proves that you probably better off not to, and that other artists’ lives are probably not better than yours just because she/he has more fame and money.
However the article is full of teaching lessons for being a freelance artist, so I wanted to share with you here. No spoilers, I will let you read the story.
And, let’s all hope that the things will turn out well for Ms. Leibovitz.
Sorry for the inconvinience for those who has started conversation on this. This post is temporary down. I will put it back up as soon as I can. But I have to sort some important stuff out before I do.
