Hello there... My name would be Julien Black if english was my native language buuut its not
I , like most of us had the nobel but cliche goal of quitting my job and somehow draw for a living without being a starving artist but more like the " I can afford 2 pairs of shoes this year and maybe even some winter boots! "
Last year in August I quit my 5 ,going strongly on 6, job and with the money I managed to save after putting a side a bit each paycheck after 3 years of savings I managed to weather the few months of empty desert until I got some commissions going and some returning customers. These are just the first steps in a different direction but aren't those the most exciting and memorable? (...and terrifying! Oh my stars this is scary A F, not gonna lie I was researching how to win favours with suspicious entities, maaaan its a wild ride, everyone of my friends thinks I'm having the time of my life! ..and I, but I'm trying very hard to also not have a heart attack, so yeeeaah, ups and downs in everything ey? But things are getting better each week , even if its by a bit and the sails are catching some tiny bit of wind..
I bought my first new pair of shoes a few weeks ago and I'm eyeing my second one online, and who knows, maybe even some winter boots!
Cheers and good luck to you too!
Julien from Europe
