I've been subscribed to SVS for some time and lurking on the forums for awhile so I figured it was time to introduce myself.
This is a big year for me as I have moved back home to Canada and am retiring from veterinary medicine (which has been my career and pretty much consumed me since high school) to be a full-time working artist.
Yup, so that's both extremely exciting and extremely daunting.

I was lucky enough to encounter SVS through Jake and Will's youtube channels (originally from Will Terrell's channel actually - check him out, he's awesome!) and all of the amazing things I'm learning from this community are helping me to find my way through this transitional period of entering the illustration field.
So hello everyone!
Hi Pam and welcome nice to meet you.
@pam-boutilier welcome and best of luck on the new chapter in your life!
welcome! I've retired my finance analyst job to try as an ilustrator, so I get the feeling. Best of luck! :-) I like your cat
@dottyp Thank you!
@chip-valecek Thank you!
(Clearly I haven't gotten the hang of forum posting yet...bear with me folks :P)
@aska Thank you - and good for you! I wonder how many here are second career artists?
Welcome fellow Canadian! I love Will's channel too, it's probably my favorite to watch.
Greetings from another Canadian
Hello from your neighbor in North Dakota! The land is so flat here I can probably see Canada from my house. Welcome!
Hi Pam! Welcome to the forum. I hope you find it as friendly and helpful as I have.
