Would you like to be an illustrator and you don't know where to start your illustration business?
Or do you want to take your business to a higher level?
You're not alone in this huge and mysterious world of illustration!
Over the years, I collected a lot of information about the creative, technical and business side of illustration. So why not share this huge amount of tips, tricks and great insights with you?
Here is a list of websites I visit on a regular basis. Some sites are incredibly useful when you subscribe to their mailinglists. I call this my illustrator's guide to the galaxy ; )
