Are you thinking of becoming an Illustrator? Photographer? Writer? Disc Jockey to alien species? Discovering of all the avenues you need to pursue can be tough (I would know). Having finally decided after a long time of writing and illustrating a life blog a couple times a week that I wanted to really buckle down and pursue this dream, I immediately threw myself into tons of reading materials, online blogs, and illustration society websites. I also sat down with more than a few illustrator friends and picked their brains.
