2018: Life in Mars / Reach for the stars / A pie in the sky?‘ New Year greetings, self-promotion

Hi! This is me wishing you all the best for this 2018 that’s just started – your ongoing, continued support in all forms, through any media, is greatly appreciated.

In 2017 I’ve finally gone fully freelance – few months ago I left what had been my dream job for nearly five years, where I’ve drawn a few greetings, learned a lot, and met very lovely people. Sometimes I think I should go back to my desk… but I’m on a mission.
So I wanted to let you know that I’m available, and open to all kinds of commissions and creative proposals. I’ll appreciate if you thought of me to do some illustrations, and/or to collaborate on any paid projects this year. Now I’ve said it, that’s all folks!

Thanks for reading, and stay in touch x
