This post is a budget update, which is how I track spending throughout the competition. Check out my budget to see what I've spent money on.
I made a list of illustrators who I planned on contacting for trial illustrations, but I lucked out by having Scott Pellico go first. Scott illustrated a piece of my world map as a trial to see if his style was a fit for the world I’d like to create. He nailed it and I’m lucky to have found a quality illustrator on the first go.
