Things I have Learned So Far

Things I Have Learned So Far

This is what I scribbled yesterday morning.
In June, it will be ten years since I started working as an illustrator.
Many (MANY) mistakes were made, and things were thus learned.  These are some of them.
I wrote this as part of a brain storm to make into a presentation I will be giving next week at a design conference in Barcelona, Spain called OFFF.  I shared this on my Facebook, and got some good responses from young illustrators and new art school graduates. So, I decided to share this here as well.

Happy graduation to you all. Wishing you an adventure-filled next ten years (and more) to come ahead.
