A year before he went freelance, Austin started blogging. Not only did it give him a space to document and reflect on his progress, but it brought him connections that referred him for work. Since then expanding his network through conferences has done the same.
He continues to think big, experiment, grow and develop his business chops. His passion for hand lettering animation has brought him a new audience with which to share his expertise and hopefully to whom he can launch a course... but first... work. Lots of it.
