I feel like the Internet is everything for my career. I wouldn’t be where I am or do what I am doing if it wasn’t for the Internet. It all started with posting drawings to my website. Using the Internet is how I've gotten all of my work.

This week’s guest is my friend, illustrator Chris Piascik, we sat down on New Year’s day and talked about how he got started as a freelance illustrator. It’s a story I think many creatives can relate to if you substitute your passion for drawing: Chris originally went to work as a designer and found that he missed drawing too much to not do it full-time. After imposing a drawing a day project in 2007, and subsequently getting side work because of it he realized it was time to take a leap into freelance. We talk about this transition, Chris’ incredibly successful Kickstarter, dealing with getting your work counterfeited and stolen, staying focused on your work, and much more.
