Welcome 2018! Today's my one year anniversary of being a self-employed illustrator, and I couldn't be more proud of it.
A year ago today I quit my day job and began my full-time career as an illustrator, and it's been a thrilling adventure ever since. Yes, I've had some ups and downs along the way but I'm so grateful to do what I love everyday (and I even get to work in my pajamas!)
And finally I can share with you what kept me so busy in 2017! Like the cute, little girl above who I illustrated for the children's book, Mommy's Khimar, written by the talented Jamilah Tompkins-Bigelow. In a few months you'll be seeing her again in book stores!
I can't wait to share more projects with you soon, but all good things come in due time, right? So here's to a wonderful, prosperous, and exciting new year!
