Why did you want to become an author or illustrator?

I’ve been drawing since I could hold a pencil, but it wasn’t until I saw The Devil Wears Prada in high school that I realized I wanted to “illustrate for magazines” which I now know is an editorial illustrator.

Take time to practice and enjoy the journey.
