Welcome Harmony! I joined SVS quite a while ago and only just jumped into the forums as well. Everyone is very helpful and welcoming here! It's nice to have a group of like minded individuals, who share the same love of art.
I also really appreciate your honesty concerning your shaky start into children's book illustration and working with publishers, gives me a spark of hope that even if i should stuff up there is always another chance ^_^
I think I will start with making illustrations (freelance possibilities) before I jump right into books or comics :) but I will work on it too for sure. Also, I need to learn English more if I want to sell something worldwide :D
@aska lol they really are the best! And that's so cool that you used to be a finance analyst! I'm no good with numbers and math myself... I always appreciate those who are. And there's definitely a lot of new things to learn here. So glad to just jump right in! :D
