Good Morning Lovers,
I'm over the moon right now with all of the incredible support I've received regarding my new Etsy shop!! Thank you for the continued encouragement and amazing feedback as always. For any of you who have ever wondered what it would be like to open your own store, I highly suggest setting up an online sales platform to get your feet in the water. It has been so fun to think about packaging, presentation, the photography, marketing...it really is my very own virtual store!!
I also wanted to share with you this awesome interview I did with the lovely Sam of Frills & Thrills blog hailing from South Africa. She asked me a few weeks ago if I would be interested in sharing my journey to becoming a fashion illustrator on her blog and I jumped at the opportunity. So here are her questions and my answers below:
What sparked your interest in fashion illustration?
From the time I was very young I had two unfailing loves, painting and fashion. When I was around 7 years old, I can remember sketching a collection of 30 women's looks under my stairwell in my childhood home. I had no interest in learning how to make the clothes I illustrated, but I knew that I wanted to keep drawing them. It took me about 15 more years to discover that I could actually have a career doing just that!
