I got to spend a lunch break with Shannon Dooley, the artist and owner behind The Doodles by Dooley - Digital illustrations of funky fresh takes on your favorite cities!
I spoke to Shannon about starting her business based on a school project involving art and travel and her wanting to start a business after 5 years of doing designs for fun and family. We spoke about how she handles burnout and what inspires her designs and what she includes in the various cities she designs. We talk about her starting her business even with a 10-month-old and why she felt she needed to do it for her. Shannon shared the benefits of being able to create and print her own designs as well as using feedback from her customers to create new designs.
