I’m taking a sabbatical from my day job as a graphic designer to concentrate on my drawing, and trying to turn drawing in to a career. I plan on working every day either drawing, pitching for work as an illustrator, or getting an online store up to feature prints of my work.
Today is day one, and it couldn’t have got off to a better start – I’ve signed my first contract to illustrate a children’s book. It’s an activity book about medieval castles, and I’ll be illustrating the cover and contents of the book – about 35 drawings in total. I can’t wait to get started.
