Can you recall the first time you realized you were going to be an Illustrator? What were your erarles impresionas? I first realized I wanted to pursue illustration during my time in art school, while studying graphic design and photography. For many of my design projects, I would look for ways to add illustrations to compliment the design work. It did not take long for me to move from looking for illustrations to creating my own. I was incredibly drawn to the unique ability that illustration has to tell a complicated story in a single image.
