This is Felix :) I will learn a new skill every year. I have already committed to this for 5 years. I decided to learn illustration design this year.
2 weeks ago, I launched Noto - Notion style avatar maker on Product Hunt. The product ranked #1 and #3 for the week. I am close to $2K in sales from this launch campaign and have received tons of social media engagement. The results have exceeded my expectations.
If we're Twitter friends, you might have seen my journey in learning illustration design since January 2021. I work full time as a marketing head for a fintech company. It's fun, but I'm always looking for something more challenging.
Illustration design appeals to me because I believe visual communication is important. Furthermore, I wanted to build and grow my skill from scratch and turning my skill into a business.
Jan: Drawing illustrations, random sketches on paper, and converting to digital art on a regular basis
Feb: Building and sharing my progress almost daily
Mar: Started learning from famous illustrators on YouTube and took three courses on Domestika
