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!
