Welcome to my DA page!

I am a Freelance Illustrator with a BA (Hons) in Illustration.
I live on the internet.
I play the occasional video game.
Frequent Moocher.
That is all :3

Personal sites:

(That was a reference :'D)

I thought it was about time I did a journal as I haven't done a proper journal since Christmas, oops... 

So anyway, I did my final semester at University and have now finished! Yay! However, I've not yet graduated because for some reason our Uni doesn't do graduation until January... But when I do, I will be graduating with a 2:1 BA (Hons) in Illustration! When I decided to go to Uni one of my main concerns was getting work done on time/ having enough worthy of a decent grade at hand in; So to have achieved a 2:1 is actually pretty great for me! 

But now I kinda feel a bit like I'm in limbo. My hand in was May and I've not really drawn/created anything since then... I've either lacked inspiration or when I've been inspired I've lacked motivation... On one hand I'm not fussed as one of my main things after uni was I felt I needed to take a step back, after working so hard take a break and work as and when I want; it's just the latter isn't really happening :'D
And I need to get back into a routine of doing things so I can put together a potential portfolio when I do start applying for jobs. Again something else I didn't want to rush into, but I've had a brief gander at some jobs/companies and it's becoming increasingly common that they're asking for applicants with "several years experience". I don't know if that means in a similar job or as an illustrator... But I am considering applying to places for experience in time, it's just the ones I've seen are probably very popular and difficult to get in to... 

That's that anyway, I still have a job. Granted it's not a spectacular job but it's brings in some pennies, I've been there long enough people turn to me to ask what to do and yeah, it's pretty simple but that doesn't make it any less tiring. But hey ho it's a job, I'm keeping an eye out for both art related and unrelated jobs anyway. In fact I saw an art one today for a web game company. but I don't think I'm ready to apply for it right now. 

That's about it really, I'm just working and trying to get out of this art funk. I will really try (I know I've said this before) to keep updating on here, even if I'm linking to other sites etc.

Til next time! x
