Q:hi! your art is soo nice, what brush do you use for those drawings like the st vincent one where it looks sort of like chalk??
So another little update!
I’ve got an interview lined up for this Tuesday. For the past two weeks, I’ve been scrambling to put together an updated portfolio to bring to the interview and I FINALLY finished it today! 40 pages of new content with a couple old things from my school days. Half of it is illustration and half of it is graphic design content. It was alot of work compiling it all, but I’m pretty happy with it. I had to reuse my old post-screw bound portfolio cover that I made 6 years ago, but it still looks pretty good.
Even if things don’t pan out with this interview, it was still nice to look back at all the things I’ve done and evaluate myself as a designer. Very seldom do you really stop and look at the amount of work you’ve completed and things you’ve learned until you have to build a portfolio. lol
Anyway, please cross your fingers for me and hope I don’t bomb this interview on Tuesday!!! @_@
I’ve been incredibly busy these past two weeks so unfortunately I haven’t really been doing any new art. Hopefully after this coming week I can return to my normal evenings. In the meantime, i made some more homemade business cards! These will be mainly for freelance work. Not sure if I will ever give them away for real, but they sure look fancy on my desk. Makes me feel official. :D
Over 1200 followers?! Whoa.
I am both flabbergasted and grateful. Thank you so much for following me! My motivation level instantly went from “meh” to “FIST PUMP mode”.
Practicing editorial style illustrations. I picked an interesting article from the New York Times to illustrate. (Find Article here) It bolsters the idea that its important to invest in strengthening families as an economic policy for closing the gap in America’s income inequality.
I’ve never tackled editorial illustrations before so conceptualizing a complex article was pretty tricky. I think referencing David and Goliath kind of works here.
Just baked up some homemade business cards for my etsy. Mmmm…
I found this neat inkjet paper that looks just like watercolor paper. Works nicely with my illustration stuff. I usually slip cards with my art prints that I sell on etsy. I like that its folded so I can write a thank you message to each customer inside. :)
