Greetings from Canada

Hey all, my name is Claire and I am a freelance illustrator and designer from Tofino BC, Canada (end of the road on west coast Vancouver Island)! I work and live from my sailboat (which can provide its own unique challenges), and feel pretty lucky to be able to do what I do for a living.
One of my New Years
resolutions"goals" this year is to listen to more Podcasts. I recently discovered 3 Point Perspective and LOVE it! I listened to the one about networking and realized that, due to my remote location, I don't really HAVE any friends or mentors in my industry in my area, and moving from here isn't possible as I LOVE where I live. Lots of artists here, but not really 'commercial illustrators'. Most of my network is via social media these days.
Since my other "goal" is to extend my network, I figured I would just dive into potential networks further afield! So that being said... here I am. Nice to see so many artists out there!

Welcome, Claire! I bet you'll like it here! I, too, fell in love with the podcast and their advice! I binge-listened to the whole thing over a couple of days, and it's a great one!! I've only been part of the forums for a couple weeks now, and I can already tell it's going to change how I look at illustration. There are tons of great threads if you go searching for keywords. Have fun!

Welcome to the forum! I'm a newbie too, and am on the total opposite side of Canada in Newfoundland! We're hoping to get to B.C. this summer for mountain biking and hiking tho We were there once and my kids are mountain biking fiends .
I joined SVS for a month but I can already tell after one week that I will be sticking around, I absolutely love what I'm learning. The courses are excellent. Anyhow, welcome again and see you around the forum

Thanks All! I was trying to go individual replies, but it won't let me post more than once in 120 seconds and I have dinner to make (and I'm a forum noob)! Looking forward to participating in the forums and challenges.
