Remember a topic that I covered sometime in 2011 – about how I think that artists and illustrators would do themselves a world of good by holding down another job to tide them over if they ever needed money? Well that post garnered lots of opinions, and I loved the sentiments shared by our audience so much that I felt that it belonged in a compendium of its own, and hence it became the title of the 11th issue of the Good to Know zine: Holding down multiple jobs. It’s easily one of my favorites from the series, because it tackles with questions that I’ve struggled with when I first started.
For those who are new to Pikaland, the Good to Know project is a series of zines and PDFs that compile advice + inspiration from artists/illustrators/designers on creativity, business and life. What started as a fun experiment turned into something so much bigger and personal than I’ve ever imagined, all thanks to our very vibrant community!
