The quote that says it all!

Rushmore by Wes Anderson is one of my favourite movies. My favourite scene goes like this:

Max turns the page of his book. There is a photograph of Jacques Cousteau laughing uproariously. A little note is written in pencil in the margin next to it with an arrow pointing to the picture. Max frowns. He turns the book sideways to read it.

"When one person, for whatever reason, has a chance to lead an exceptional life, he has no right to keep it to himself."
-Jacques Cousteau

Then you can hear the ocean in the background. Very charming and a very true quote that all creatives should live by.

Latest interview from The Free Creatives

The site The Free Creatives interviewed me about my freelance business, the challenges of being a freelancer, lessons I've learned so far, advice I could tell anyone just starting out as a freelance designer/illustrator, my daily routines, and the benefits that my book can provide. The Free creatives host a number of freelance-related articles. "Some of us freelance, some us don't, but the point is that we all genuinely love what we do." Well said!
