Lessons Learned from Illustrating the $100 Startup

Chapter 10 Art Master FINAL

TODAY I was honored to see my article, Lessons from Illustrating the $100 Startup appear on Chris Guillebeau's Art of Non-Conformity (AONC) blog.

Chris invited me to write a piece about how the illustrations were created and lessons learned through the process — of course I said yes!

Here's a little preview:

IN THE FALL of 2011, Chris Guillebeau reached out to me with a top secret project he was working on. It was his $100 Startup book and he needed illustrations to amplify the words he was writing in the book.

If not for my friend Jon Mueller at 800-CEO-READ, I might have declined the project, because at the time I was incredibly busy with multiple projects and was planning to write a book on sketchnoting.

I’d known a little about Chris, his blog and his book, AONC, but it was Jon who highly recommended Chris’s book project. So, I decided to go for it.

Go read the full article on Chris; AONC blog.

Chris doesn't give out guest posts lightly, so I'm incredibly honored to have been featured on his AONC blog today.

The $100 Startup is another great project I'm so proud to be part of because I think it helps people start businesses creatively, improving lives and offering new opportunities.

Thanks Chris!

Thank you. I read the book a month or so ago and really enjoyed your drawings! I got here via a link Chris posted earlier today. I will go check out the full blog now.

K, bye
