How to Hire Loraine to Make Your Blog Less Boring

A first-time client wrote a blog post about his experience in finding and hiring me after we completed a successful job!

It began as an audition job, where he tested out 4 cartoonists because he didn't have a solid idea of what he was looking for. This was his first time hiring a cartoonist to illustrate his blog post.

I was one of the four picked for the trial, and I had a hunch that what he was looking for was very different from what his example was. Categorically so.

For whatever reason, I threw caution to the wind and went with my gut on this one.

I hardly ever do this- usually I deliver exactly what's asked for, and keep my editorial thoughts about it out of the way. People want what they want, it's not my place to tell them it's a weak idea. (Pro tip- consult me on the concept. My true strength is in design and concept, more than the art.)

You can read the rest here! It's a wonderful walk through his entire journey in this endeavor, and full of great tips and insight should you want to try something like this yourself!
