“Do your work consistently and regularly, and then put it out there. You aren't going to know if you can make it until other people can see your work and respond to it.”
Alyson Thomas' career started in a very different place—the Department of Homeland Security. From doodling in meetings, to turning in her badge and spending a year on a drawing project, her love of illustration eventually blossomed into a full-time business. Her accurate and amusing glassware is designed to brighten the bar of the mixology novice and expert alike. As a former attorney, one of her favorite parts of the design process is the research stage. "I'm inspired by my desire to learn more and then share that information with others," she says. "It's helpful to have a visual representation of what goes into various cocktail...you can understand more about how drinks like Bloody Marys and margaritas come together."
