On Jackson Street turns ONE!

Life has been so busy that I missed the first birthday of On Jackson Street last month, but I’m making up for it with these nice illustrations by Oliver Page-Dutton to celebrate.

OJS started on the 24th of January 2015, and the past year has been pretty momentous. It was hard to anticipate how the year would pan out, starting a small business on my own, off the back of networking I’d done during my degree. It was audacious, and very daunting, but I’m proud of the jobs I’ve taken on, quality of my work and connections I’ve made in the past year. Always room for improvement, but validity in the pride I feel when I finish a job. OJS is run by one person – it’s just me who goes to all of my jobs, meetings and events, who responds to your emails and Instagram comments, and I’m very proud of that. Doing it alone means I can control every aspect of my business, but it also means I’m constantly improving and expanding my skills. Thank you to everyone who has given me a chance, for your patience and advice. My business may be run by just myself, but it’s powered by all the nice people and clients who take such good care of me. Thank you. I truly couldn’t have done it without you.
