Some excuses, and the next steps with this blog
Admittedly, I've been very timid when it comes to blog writing in 2015. I have half-written so many posts, and have deleted every single one of them. I know that it's all about just getting it out there, but my biggest concern has been about drawing an audience to my blog based on a specific subject that I wasn't passionate about. I really believe that curation is crucial to building an audience, and didn't want to start up a blog on a certain subject, and then change gears after a few months or so.
This summer, I decided to start up a second Instagram account focused only on my design work. It serves as an outlet for all the random designs I put together, and mainly I started it so I wouldn't spam all of my friends who couldn't care less. But as a result, because that account is curated with the same type of content, it has gained way more attention than I could have imagined so far, because people know what to expect.
I've decided that I want to curate this blog as well, and want to fill it with Adobe Illustrator content specifically. Be it a finished design, a tutorial, a video, a time-lapse design video, I plan to do many things related to design, in ways that I hope can help you in your journey to master Adobe Illustrator.
Most of what I learned about design, I learned outside of school, through others, and through curiousity. I plan to cater my content at first to the Novice to Intermediate level Illustrator user, so you will definitely see some of the basics in here.
I hope you enjoy, and most importantly, I hope you learn!
