Well! I can't believe it but a few nights ago I reached 10,000 followers on my instagram account.

I've been asked a few times by students in school for art and design to answer some questions for their assignments. This is super flattering and makes me feel like a for real legitimate illustrator (byyyye imposter syndrome!).

Well the big news around here is I decided to leave my job at Microsoft. I have felt a little stuck the last little while. While I've never felt more creative, I've also never felt stifled in quite this way before. And not by my job, like so many other creatives who long to go full time freelance but are too worried financially to leave their day job, but actually just by the rules of my work visa. Since I can't really start my own business as a Canadian on a temporary visa living in the U.S., it's either work as a designer for an employer or don't work at all.
