I have been doing more jobs as a sales and brand rep as of the few years. Totes different than art or graphic design, but it is still good skills nonetheless.
I get a lil discouraged, but I have been taking the time to reevaluate my samples, think and draft up new ones that could beat out my half baked ideas from years ago. -_-;
Oh yea... my phone got stolen too about a month ago. I let it go only for the time being.... allowing me to have some time away from constantly being tied to social media, and to really focus some ideas on my portfolio and my art.
It is amazing how many hours I can let fly by doing almost nothing on those social media platforms! geez.... At least I do take the time to read an article or two though than just funny memes of cats and whatnot.
Practice makes better, and time and persistence will tell what will happen. Hell, who knows if that is the route for me, or where I will go in my career path! Or better yet, if time and practice is all I need to catch the eye of a company.
Until next time!
