This has been a good day, I must say! 2 Job interviews, and I will be working doing illustration and graphic design for wildlife conservation. A very good day indeed! When starting a new venture, a psychological boost helps keep one going. Knowing that a group of people has found my work to be strong and good enough for a job interview or a commission fills me with hope. I placed a very small advertisement on Facebook, and that seemed to go well. I had a lot of “likes”.
So now my name is (even a teensy bit) out there. What comes next? More work, more advertising, more job searches in permanent, temp, consultation and in-between trying to find time to educate myself. S ometimes, art can be a solitary affair. More so when you just moved across the continent with few friends and no family besides myself and my wife. But today, I feel just a little more connected to my adopted state and town, as well as my potential audience. And that in my book, is a good thing. 🙂
