  1. 4 Things I wish I knew before becoming a professional artist

    21 Oct 2020
    When I started my first corporate job at 17, a 60-year-old man with a dry English wit showed me the ropes. He didn’t show me how to do my job (touch typing, and girl Friday activities weren’t his strong suit). Instead, he showed me how things really worked. The sort…
