I recently read this line in a blog: ‘If you do what you always did, you will get what you always got’. It is a quote by Einstein. I am not a quote kind of person, but this one touched me. Probably because it describes exactly the change I am going through.
It’s become more clear to me that I want to follow my passion in illustrating and book design. And if I keep on doing my work as I did, I will get work as I always got. Do I want to follow my passion? Then something has to change. Now, at this very moment.
Illustration is a personal translation of the story that I want to tell
Now that I am going to change my focus, this name doesn’t fit me anymore. Illustration is a more personal translation of the story that I want to tell. Illustrating and book design which I do coming from my heart. This asks for a more personal name. And what name is more personal than my own? That’s why I choose to use Leonie Verbrugge ‘illustrator & book designer’. This name change will take effect on April 1st (and no, it’s not a joke :)).
What is your passion? And did you choose to follow it? I would like to read about your experiences, so feel free to leave a comment. Thank you!
