    How inspiring to hear from an illustrator whose been at it for 20 years and is still going strong, facing the technological challenges of today! Thank you for that very interesting interview. :o)

    IMO, the best thing about podcasts, is you can listen and learn while you continue working on your latest project!

      Agreed Lisa!! It’s always great hearing Illustrators journeys and getting inspired while you work! Seeing how much you have in common and sharing in their stories while you learn how to apply it your own. Great stuff! Glad you enjoyed it! We’ll have another up soon!

    Thanks Lisa for your comments. 20 years seams a very long time and yet some days I feel it’s only been 5 minutes… Staying on top of one’s profession is a very forceful roller coaster with days of despair making you wonder “why, ho why am I doing this?” and days of exhilaration making you punch the air shouting “YES!” No matter what, staying focus and moving on one day at the time is the key. By the way, podcasts are also my favourite working sound background, can’t wait to listen to the next one on Once Upon a Sketch…
