How I got started as an illustrator

  How I got started as an illustrator My name is Stella Isaac and I am an illustrator working from my home studio in South Devon, UK. I often get asked about how I got started as an illustrator and how I get commissions with brands. This is my journey of becoming an illustrator, although everyone's will be different, this is a little bit about my experiences. I am still in the early stages of building my career but here's what I've learnt so far.  My love of art and design has always been at the forefront of everything from a young age, it sounds very cliche but art was always my main focus throughout school. I first discovered illustration after a discussion with my Fine Art Tutor whilst undertaking my A-levels. He informed me of the art foundation course, explaining that this would open up doors for me to pursue my passion as a career , something that I had not considered as an option before.  I was lucky enough to be accepted onto the Totnes Art and Design Foundation Cou
