Looking back at the Illustration Process

While I am eager and most excited to complete the final stages of VIZAĜO, a slight problem with a broken finger has forced me to be patient for a few weeks, something I struggle with on the best of days… Yet attempting to clamber up rocks on a bushwalk was so hilariously silly that I’m just going to […]
