My favorite fashion illustrators are The Blake Wright and Eri the Mermaid (you can google their blogs). I also interviewed Blake on my Chic Blog. It seems like as an illustrator you do a lot of freelance work, and have a side job in graphic design or something to pay the bills. You should put your work out there and start a site/blog and try to get exposure to bigger brands. Blake does freelance for Neiman Marcus now which is a pretty big deal! I’m not an illustrator though, but I do follow the career of many. I’d love to hear about the experience of others. :)

My favourite Fashion Illustrators are Garence Dore and Bernadette form Decade Diary. I love watercolour illustrations the most!

We’ve interviewed some Fashion illustrators on our website here that have collaborated and done work for big brands such as H&M, Net-a-porter and Vogue and they started just by showcasing their work on their blog.

It’s amazing to hear their stories and look forward to sharing more creative individuals work!

If you want to become self-employed as a fashion illustrator, you probably should maintain a steady job while developing your own client base. But remember that it will take lots of patience to get your business built, so be patient:)
P.S. My favorite fashion illustrators are Antonio lopez and David downtown

I agree that is a good plan. But what if your current employer has made you sign a non-compete?
