I'm hoping to change careers. I come from a newspaper background, so I'm familiar with Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, which should ease the transition some. I'm a pretty good sketch artist.
I just decided on this wild right turn, so I haven't nailed down a lot of specifics. I know I'd like to set up my own business and maybe work from home. I'm not sure if I need to go back to school or not. I also don't know if it's better to become a graphic artist over a graphic designer. Any advice, especially from professionals, would be appreciated. Go Hawks.
