Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted. I try to only post meaningful updates and this one is worth it.
My friend Wylie Beckert has a kickstarter (link) that’s wrapping up in a few days. She achieved her goal of 18,ooo USD in only 9 hours! Her project is a deck of playing cards that she’s been illustrating for the past year or so and it looks amazing. It’s dark, whimsical, and just beautiful.
I want to share her project because she has been so helpful to me over the past year and a half as I left my full-time job as an industrial designer to pursue illustration. Wylie has been ever helpful with business advice, contacts, she’s shared my work with her own fans, and has just been a great friend to hang with and bullshit about illustration and all the headaches, friends, and victories that come along with pursuing what you love
P.S. - I’m still working on personal work. The J.Kobb is a big one. It’s twice as large as I normally work and I get about an hour or two in each night after my main line of work. Thanks so much for hanging in there and keeping up with my stuffs!
