There’s nothing like Flattery to boost your ego

I received this really sweet note from a college student the other day. I don’t get these types of compliments often, so it was a really nice pick-me-up and very uplifting.

It’s actually kind of amazing that I’m getting some real visibility on the web lately!!!! People are actually checking me out. But of course in the back of my mind I’m thinking “I really need to update my site”.

Subject: I love your artwork!

> Hi Cindy Ann, I just have to say I am a big fan of your colorful illustrations and can only hope to be as talented and successful as an illustrator someday. I am an illustration major at Syracuse University interested in relocating to the Philadelphia area following school. I reviewed your resume online and found it of interest in my researching process. I don’t know how long you lived in Philadelphia or if you could help me in answering a few questions, but, I am interested in knowing, and particularly from a visual communications professional, what are the major markets for illustrators living in the area? And in your experience, did you find that many design and advertising agencies were interested in hiring full-time illustrators?
