This is part of a new series that I'm working on about taking the dive into freelance illustration. I've noticed a ton of buzz on the subject lately (probably Facebook's targeted ads zeroing in on me). For the past 7 years, I've worked as a staff artist & designer. This past month, I decided to leave my position and head out on my own. I've been very lucky to have met many supportive & inspiring people along the way, without whom, this would never have been possible. This was a very scary (and exciting) decision to make, but I'm very happy to have taken the dive. So far, it feels fantastic.
