A drawing a day

Chris Piascik is an illustrator and graphic designer based in Connecticut, USA. Four years ago, he decided to do a drawing every day which he'd post on his blog. Several hundred illustrations (he calls them his dailies) later he set himself a goal to publish a book when he got to 1000.  He wanted to control the publishing himself so he asked anyone who subscribed to his blog and enjoyed his illustrations to contribute money to his cause - he needed to raise USD 5500.  This he managed to do.  He says doing the Daily Drawings has changed his life; he gained the confidence to leave his job and do more illustration which then led to lots of commissions. He is now represented by an agent in Paris, Valerie Oualid who sent me a newsletter featuring his work. Inspiring stuff.
