Coming from a business background, I know that time, quality and resources are always main considerations when trying to deliver a product. In this case, the product is an illustration a day. So I asked myself, what is going to suffer in order to "meet deadline"?
Was I to post low quality illustrations that would make people scratch their heads and exclaim loudly "WTF - my two-year old could draw better"? Was I to go sleepless in order to have the time to produce masterpiece illustrations?
