I’ve been thinking a lot about some life events and milestones of mine this year: getting married, celebrating a big birthday, turning in illustrations for a tenth book…the list goes on. But there’s one milestone in particular that I keep coming back to—one that took place ten years ago today.
It was then that I had an argument with my boss which led to me hatching a plan to quit my job as a designer to return to school and give this illustration thing a go. I’m still a work in progress—that’s for sure, but on this Throwback Thursday, I’d like to throw some appreciation your way, to my family, friends and followers—to everyone who’s been so kind and supportive to me over the last decade. It really has meant a lot, so I just want to shout out a big THANK YOU for helping me reinvent myself.
