How did you end up doing what you’re doing now? Did your parents/teachers want you to be a lawyer?
I think it’s my mom’s fault, jeje. She always gave me these wonderful and HUGE coloring books, and I would finished them in two days. I loved it so much! I guess since that early age I knew that I wanted to be coloring for the rest of my life. Of course my parents wanted me to have a “normal” career but I guess they were a little scared because they didn’t really knew what I was going to do. I still think they don’t really get what I do, but they are happy with my decision.
How do you promote yourself and find new work? ….hard work, networking, luck, black magic?
Hard work always, it’s the most important, without hard work you can’t go anywhere. Networking helps a lot that way you know what people want and is always nice to hear you are doing a great job it impulses you to do better.
