Lately I've been thinking of starting my own business! I've been working as graphic designer for almost a decade, and also I've been doing illustrations for the magazines, newspapers or small clients I has working for. But as much as I enjoy my work I always looking for my next illustration project, no matter how large or small the project is. Plus, I became a mom and really need more time for my family and maybe working from home can offer me that...I hope!!! So this is why I am thinking maybe it's time to focus on illustration and start my own (small) freelance business. These 2 books really are full of useful and helpful tips if becoming a freelancer is what you have in mind!
