Thank you for your support & Happy Holidays!

So how is your December rush going? Do you have special plans for the holiday season? How do you celebrate Christmas and New Year?

For me, November and December have been very busy! As most of you  know, I write, edit and publish on my free time, which means I have a day job to help paying the bills. What do I do for a living? I am a professional illustrator and graphic designer, and I have been doing mostly Fantasy book covers for indie authors and publishing houses for the past 6 years (and before that, I did graphic design for different forms of advertisement in the heavy metal/alternative music niche). And for the past one and a half year I have also worked as art teacher at the local school.

This week, however, after months trying to reconnect with my roots, I finally found the motivation and right mindset to do that. Read more

Human Voices | Clare Diston

As of the 1st of October, Human Voices – as a full-time venture – is now 2 years old!

Human Voices has been officially up and running since October 2011, and almost 4 years to the day after I started the business, I quit my job to become a full-time freelancer. This has been my only job for 2 years now, and I couldn’t be more pleased!

To celebrate, I made the most garish cake I could think of:

business birthday 2017

Of course, birthdays are a pretty good time for reflection, so I thought I’d share some of the things I’ve learned since I’ve been in business:

  • If you do a good job, clients will come back. It might take a few months or a few years (the latter especially if you’re dealing with people who write novels), but if you make a good impression your clients will remember you and they…
