March overview

Hello dear friends!
Let me start by saying I love my job!
There has been a lot of ups and downs and I'm sure this is just the beginning, but I really love what I'm doing and what I've acheived so far. I actually need to put that in writting to remember it when times get rough.
About rough times... I had a few this month. What helped was putting things in prespective and thinking where I've been and how much I've evolved.

how I used to draw a cat in 2006 and how I am doing it 10 years later. I can definetely see some evolution!

On a brighter note, this month was packed with exciting new things and projects! Here are a few I can already share with you:
The third book I illustrated was finally released! It's the traditional tale of the Twelve Dancing Princesses and it's available in Pingo Doce (a national store)

I created two new little illustrations I really like and also received some lovely feedback from you on social media. Over the next few weeks they'll be added as prints to my shop

I also shared a bit of the process of creating my Amy Winehouse illustration. It isn't easy for me to share work that isn't final yet but I'm glad I did! You can read more about it here.

This month I created some editorial illustrations for an article about pets (what a great subject!!!) and I'll be sharing the final results soon! I'm now searching for some more work in that are so if you have an awesome article that would benefit from my illustrations, make sure to contact me!

Yesterday I attended a Ladies, Wine & Design event. It was my third one and I'm planning a post about it later this April so make sure to come back for that.

This month I decided it was finally time to create my newsletter. I started working on it and I already had the first draft ready. But then I came across a few articles about why you shouldn't start one and I found myself second guessing the decision. There are obviously ups and downs to it. I think I'll eventually go ahead and do it but decided to think about it for a little while longer as I really want to make something that's worth the confidence of the people subscribed.

I guess this is pretty much it! I really like writing these overview posts. I hope you like them too. And I hope you feel confortable enough to also share some of your achievements this month down in the comments. I'd love to read it!
