I would strongly advise anyone to do this. Especially if you’re a little lost or confused, career-wise. Get some magazines and cut out whatever interests or inspires you. Do some doodles! Anything!
Doing the vision board itself, really excited me (sad, I know). Seeing it all in one place really helped me to see what to do. Soon I will be on my way to becoming an actual Illustrator, Designer, Author and more. Just need to brush up on some work experience as well as make important investments (camera, editing software and much more…)
