When people first hear I work as a designer/illustrator, they imagine laughter, painting and lots of freedom. But, at the end of the day work is work. And no matter how great a job can seem… sometimes it (sadly) boils down to the bottom line. Don’t get me wrong – there is a lot of fun and laughter in the creative field. (And, some are lucky enough to have a job where you create whatever you want boundlessly.) But, for me it is a constant balance of fun and reality. In my opinion one of the hardest things is maintaining creative self-satisfaction.
