So as some of you may know I started college a few weeks ago, and it´s going great I´m growing so much as an artist and I´m really liking all that I draw inside and out of class. Heck the request line is going better than I could´ve hoped for and led me to open up commissions this week! I´ve even gotten my first two official... clients...? customers...? Whatever! I´ll just say I´ve gotten my first two awesome art buyers.
But still, what surprised me even more was what happened today!
So I went to have lunch with a friend, and she wanted to see my drawings, so I handed her my sketch book and we started talking. Little did we know that someone was watching us and listening our conversation. So this person approached us, and told me that she was a writer for a children´s book, and that she couldn´t help but listen to our conversation and see my sketches. She basically straight up offered me a job to illustrate two of her books. And of course I said I wanted to hear more of this project! So I gave her my e-mail and she left, leaving me and my friend with the most dumbfounded faces on the planet! Something like this- img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20…
So yeah that´s been my week so far and those are the reasons I havent been able to stop smiling all day long... my face hurts! XD
