If a week ago someone would have said “Norm, this week you’re going to write your business goals and come up with a plan of how you are going to obtain them.” I would have laughed in there face. Well that’s what the Week 2 Challenge was for the zero2illo 12 Week Challenge. I’m Glad Jonathan Woodward was not here (he’s the creator of this challenge). After freaking out for the first few days I sat down reading everyones comments on the zero2illo week 2 post. I finally started to get an idea of what I wanted to do. I got a lot of ideas from the comments so I figured I need to share my ideas as well. I know thats what everyone does in this crazy online world, but I’m still getting used to the social networking side of illustration. Thanks to everyone who shared their ideas it really helped get me through my thoughts.
Well here is my week 1 assignment for the Zero2Illo’s 12 Week Challenge. I’m posting it a little late but it was done on time… Really. What is the 12 Week Challenge you say. Well its a website created by Jonathan Woodward to help aspiring illustrators get their careers started and well I’m not entirely in that boat I need to get out of my comfort zone and expand my career. I started following Zero2Illo’s blog after hearing an interview with Jonathan Woodward on a podcast call Escape From Illustration Island (by the way check out this Podcast. Great information.) Anyway the the week one challenge was to focus your goals to one area of illustration and here is what I settled on.
Sorry for the crazy layout its the graphic designer in me.
