Being my second time applying to the event, you can imagine my excitement on being accepted into the Spring 2019 CraftHER Market. It really feels like all the work I have done since November to help mature my art brand, generate more content, and build a wider audience has really paid off.
Just another wonderful reminder that if I keep trying, evolving, and working hard to follow my illustration dreams, things do start coming together eventually. Also, something to keep in mind if you are pursuing some creative dreams: sometimes you just need a little extra maturation time, so don’t give up!
It’ll be happening on my birthday and I would love to see your smiling face there!
