This lecture basically just outlined what we would be talking about during these lectures. Firstly, we went over the basic plan of working for yourself, and also went through some of the things that being a freelancer entails, i.e. hard work, dedication, etc. We were then given a list of difficult questions that we had to ask yourselves. The aim of these were to make sure we know what type of illustrator we want to be.
This lecture was a useful opening to the business side of illustration, and really got me asking myself questions that made me question my work ethic, and who I want to be as a professional. Answering these questions, also made my work that much stronger.
