Except for some early childhood experiments with MS Paint, I never tried illustrating and creative designing seriously until recently. I got a "job" from myself that required me to put as much effort into it as possible. Having no extra money, I had to make my own book cover. I knew I had the creativity, maybe even a basic skill, but no experience. So how should one get started?I will guide you through the steps based on my example:1. Know what you wantThis is easier than it sounds, you... continue reading

I was uploading pictures for about a year, from 2010 until 2011. My last photo was uploaded on the 20th of October of 2011. Ever since I was completely inactive.

Give it a try and see if you like it:) continue reading
