“Always continue producing and improving! Don’t stop, even when you get paid a lot, because people may forget you!”
- Alejandro and Juan share that nobody in family thought art could be the way of earning money, so Juan studied and became a certified pharmacist. Alejandro was the one who went to graphic design school where he learned you can actually make living by making art
- They developed their skills by trying and experimenting. They learned on the go. They just used whatever they had and used client work and personal projects to explore and improve
- Both, Alejandro and Juan say that running a studio requires a lot of “boring” business work – invoices, proposals, bills, taxes, etc. Illustration studio is like any other business, it’s not only art
