The Intern - Illustrated
Illustrator; Intern; Retail Assistant
When I was at the age of 23 I asked my Mother - what shall I do? Shall I draw pictures? Shall I intern?
Here’s what she said to me…
TRY EVERYTHING & GET EXPERIENCE!!!
The BIG lesson I have learnt since graduating last year is to have a plan! Get a part-time job doing anything whatsoever- it will not be your job for life!
I thought it would be easy-ish to find the job of my dreams! But it really isn’t!
Well I’m definitely not rich yet…but I’m working on it. I’m rich with inspiration – but unfortunately that doesn’t pay the bills!
It’s hard to fight for something you believe in.
(If most of the time you are doubting your belief!)
The art world is a mine field these days. We are told there is no right or wrong way of expressing ourselves…but if we want to make money out of our craft then it definitely has to be the right way!
I have started my journey through this mine field. I am an unknown artist (except by friends/family and the few friends/fans accumulated through faithful Facebook)
How do you get where you dream to be?
I don’t enjoy it. But you’ve gotta be in it to win it!
So here I go…
