Most of you probably don’t know this, but I am a home schooled highschooler. Mind blowing, right? But, what made me want to start my art career this early? What made me think I was ready, when I hadn’t gone to art school and mostly just doodled in my spare time? Why would I be willing to dive into this scary business of illustrating a children’s book? Well, to be honest, I didn’t think I was ready, not even in the slightest. It was super scary getting started, and it will continue to be scary until I am done with the illustrations for this book. After all, I’m only fifteen. How could I possibly satisfy this person’s needs?
But here are the reasons why I will never ever regret getting a head start on my illustrating career in highschool, and you won’t either.
