Aside from being an artist as long as I can remember I started offering a few tutorials on YouTube. Little did I know that by teaching people the fundamentals of art and anatomy I'd begin a new dimension to my career.
Being a working freelance illustrator with a YouTube channel is hard work, and I wouldn't change a thing. I steadily expanded my work from clients who needed branding to do work on indie games and apps. I enjoy helping artists and non-artists achieve that next level.
The road to artistic expression and freedom is paved with hard work and dedication. There are setbacks and monsters to slay, but the rewards are great.
