I finally got my hands on a copy of “Starting Your Career as an Illustrator” by Michael Fleishman. I contributed some writing and drawing to it and was delighted to get stuck in and read some good tips. The book has lots of practical advice about how to get started and build a career, with advice from superstar illustrators from around the world such as Shaun Tan, Greg Pizolli, Yuko Shimizu…and me! My contribution was more about feelings than finances and you can read a snippet of it here. I also have a drawing from my #100daysofbicyles series in it too.
You can buy the book here.
