I am super happy I had the chance to interview Melinda Beck for the show. She's an incredible illustrator and graphic designer who showcases a wide range of styles. And you can certainly see the graphic design influence in her illustration. We talk about what it's like to be a freelance illustrator while raising two teenage girls and what childhood in New York City is like.


Melinda has some good advice about time management and living simply in order to make time for her kids, her work and herself. Advice we can probably all use. She will be dispensing lots of advice in her workshop at ICON10 so be sure to check and see if there are any spots open.

If you'll be at ICON10 please say hello! I'm thrilled to be going back for the second time and excited to explore Detroit.
