Have you ever said this to yourself?
"There is far too much competition and no room for more illustrators!"
You must be thinking if there is more room, more work and any need for another illustrator/doodler? Don't worry. I thought this too when I started my career.
The simple answer is YES!!! There is a lot of work and not enough designers to do it... The demand for VISUALS is the highest it has ever been.
With the world becoming more and more digital, the need for visuals is increasing. The Vector art found in abundance has been over used. The PPT graphs scream "BORING" and stock photos look like, well, stock photos! Everyone around the world is looking to do something unique, something that cannot be found on the internet, something they are willing to pay for.
