Hey guys! How are you doing? I've been pretty busy with university lately, especially with mid terms coming up, but luckily spring break is right around the corner. :3
Lately I've been thinking a lot about art as a job, and I realized that I hadn't really thought about the job aspect of making art, whether it be deadlines, contracts, or working under someone else's creative direction. I've heard a lot of people complain about how hard it is to work for companies because of how strict their creative vision is, and how much they strive for perfection, and I realized that I think I would work well with having someone else pushing me to do my best and try my hardest. I also have a problem working out what I want to create on my own, but when I have a prompt from an outside source I find that ideas flow a lot easier for me. So I'd like to hear about how you guys feel about art as a job.
Also I've been trying to do more planning so that I can see having a job in art as more of a reality, rather than just an empty promise to myself. So I've been looking at internships and thinking about building a portfolio for that purpose. The big problem that I'm running into is that I have never finished an art piece before I pretty much only sketch, so I'm going to be working a lot on trying to finish projects, which I am going to struggle with immensely.
I look forward to hearing your opinions, and I hope to post more finished work soon!
Talk to you later! :3
