It is a challenge to make a living as a full time practitioner within design and illustration. We have to be agile and always look for new arenas where we can use and share our knowledge. Sharing knowledge is a great way to create a sustainable income stream and here in London it is popular to organise workshops, talks and club nights where practitioners meet to discuss matters of design or to learn new techniques.
