Mantra for a Bright Freelance Career
Find inspiration in everyday things that are omnipresent
People often pass by without taking notice of things that they encounter every single day. For executing story illustrations, these are the places you need to look. The skill is to give mundane life a refreshing and 'never seen or heard before' appeal. Like Surmai that showcases the story of a small boy who lives near fishing docks or 100 Kisses that shows how a cup of tea passes through so many people of different backgrounds. Just keep in mind, the purpose of the work is to be understood by everyday people. The execution needs to be simple. Don't forget that fantasy is all around and finding a unique niche is the key to getting recognised.
