It’s me… Andi. Welcome to my new blog!
Years ago, I graduated with a degree in illustration and dreams of becoming a professional freelancer. Since then, life has taken a lot of twists and turns… including a new city, marriage and mommyhood.
During those years, I’ve dabbled in illustration just enough to convince myself that I haven’t let go of my dreams. I’ve had a couple art shows, attended a few conferences and sporadically worked on my portfolio. However, I continually find myself falling back into comfortable positions doing marketing, web design and graphics. Those jobs are still creative… right?
I know that my true passion has always been more about paintbrushes than html codes though. Family and friends have been
pestering encouraging me to try my hand at children’s illustration for years. This year, I’ve decided to take their advice, put on my “big girl” pants and make a true effort.
As the saying goes… Creativity takes courage.
I’m putting my brave boots on today.
