Zero to Illo to somewhere-o

So you've probably noticed some changes recently. I've broken out of the 9-5 arty jobs to go freelance. There has been a tonne to take in, but at the same time, it's been a dream trying to execute ideas conjured up in my head for all these years. I think I'm very lucky that there is so much support and resources out there to make the jump relatively light.

One of those resources is the 'Zero to Illo' 12 week challenge. It means what it says really. You're nothing. You try to be something in 12 weeks. Now I've done 12 week challenges before, and I know you're out there reading this scoffing, wondering what the point is. That was me too, but that really misses the reason they're there for.

Anyway. I hope to share the experience with you, oh, valuable reader.

Have a good loooooooong weekend! Here's a PS sketch of a 'goth dragon' done for Sketchaholics.
