After much MUCH thinking and a recent personal Milestone, I've decided to turn Butterfrog Studio (BFS) into a Professional Illustration and Design Studio.
For five years I've been pouring my head on paper (and digitally!) and did so happily as a hobby. Last year I started to take "Butterfrog Studio" more seriously and decided to start an RPG Publishing Studio. This was received as good news but many people got worried that I would no longer provide artwork because I'd be much too busy publishing. This got me a bit concerned because I didn't wanted to loose clients on the biz side that was more profitable (illustration) over the biz side that was more out of personal satisfaccion (RPG making), because in the end, I'm trying to turn BFS into an actual business and that requires to pay attention to the profitable side, and honestly, I enjoy illustration almost as much as RPG making.
What does going Pro mean?
For BFS, it means dedicating part of my time to it as any professional work requires, so, starting today, I'll have a formal second job, all dealings will be slightly more professional, and that I'll start providing "regular services" both free and contracted, like weekly illos and monthly suplements, a much larger presence on the social media, and much more goodies All focused mainly in Illustration, cartography and graphic design for gaming.
In a nutshell, BFS is about to offer much more and at a faster phase, stay tuned!!!
Thanks for watching!
