I am a worker bee, whose art allows her to feel like The Queen. I create work to generate work, for myself. The temptation to sit back and wait for a brief to come to me may be strong, but the pull, the urge to produce something thoughtful and beautiful wins every time. Today, as I submit this, its January 9 2018 and has been 365 days since my first illustration - I can’t imagine not picking up digital pencil and making something. My style is yet to be found, it’s in constant flux. And so while I toil away at the coal face of retail to make ends meet, I spend every other moment turning inspiration into perspiration into art. And I’d love more time to do more and more of the same and continue to make visually beautiful images through illustrations.
