I am 100 mushrooms

Hi! I am starting this class to try and teach myself how to think out of the box and find my own voice in my illustration. I am 31, South African and am finally embarking on the journey to make a living out of my art. I really hope I can come up with 100 ways to illustrate a mushroom! This should be fun.
