What is some key advice that you would give to a beginner illustrator?

Always, always, always, draw for yourself. Even if you’re working with a client, make sure you add a part of you in your works or else it won’t feel like you’re really working with them, but rather for them. If you’re scared of copying someone’s work, take pieces of it and see how you develop your skills from there. How do you think they’ve learned? And lastly, you can’t unlearn how to draw, you can only stay the same or move forward with it.


What’s one small business you absolutely love and would recommend readers to check out?

Can I be biased? Grandma’s Basement.

Jokes aside, though I really would recommend Grandma’s Basement to anyone, I think magnetism store sources beautiful, simple vintage as well. Check them out!
