No this isn’t the latest in the movie franchise Taken!
The recent post from Creative Boom caught my eye today asking that very same question. In the marketplace it isn’t enough to be fantastic at illustration; be able to make repeat patterns; knowing your fushias from your magentas or being a wizard at Photoshop and Illustrator.
There is another set of skills required to succeed in the creative arena and some of them can’t be bought on an e-course or taught at all. I think I may need to crawl into a quiet corner with a hypnotherapy tape and a self-help book.
Thanks for reading and I hope it didn’t scare you too much.
