TL;DR - I am now a One Club Young Gun, freshly minted fulltime freelancer, and available for work! Also vote for me as your fave Young Guns winner: oneclub.org/awards/youngguns/winners
I am humbled and honored to announce that I am amongst the winning class of The One Club for Creativity's Young Guns. For those unfamiliar, 'Young Guns recognizes the vanguard of creative professionals 30 years of age and under. Founded in 1996, it has grown to become one of the most coveted awards for young creatives around the globe. For many, being named a Young Guns winner is a sure sign of a skyrocketing career, as well as a source of validation for all of the stressful days and sleepless nights that have come with early successes.' I personally have looked up to several past winners, their work, and their creative point of view; it is incredible to now share this honor with them.
I've also decided to become a freelancer fulltime (for both illustration and design); after several chats (and cries) with mentors, parents, brother, boyfriend, and friends, I've decided this is the best time in my career to take this chance on myself.
