I'm coming to the end of my time with the Directory of Illustration. During this time I really pushed myself to create something everyday. They allow you 50 pieces and my wonderful agent Ellie pushed me to produce up to the limit! She said that the most successful illustrators create stories that draw in the viewer. I think that was the hardest for me because I was most concerned with my line quality and delivering what I thought was a "finished" piece.
Now some three years later I maybe onto something. Hopefully!
Thank you DOI and Ellie! Much love!
