|Introduction||Adam Baker is a graduating Bachelor of Illustration as of August 2009.
He is a full time graphic designer and large-format color printing specialist at ProGraphics in the heart of downtown Nashville.
This blog is his attempt to be able to look back years from now and be able to see his transformation as he migrates from the title of graphic designer "working for the man" to fulfilling his life long dreams of being a full time, self employed freelance illustrator.
