Yesterday I finally got the call I have been waiting for for 2 weeks.
I got the job.
If you've ever been unemployed for more than 6 months you know that this is a pretty big deal. A really big deal actually! You can stop worrying and being completely unaware of how your future will look.
I am very happy to share these news with you, as from march, I will be working at an advertisement agency in Helsingborg. I originally applied for a job as a graphic designer, but to my luck the Create Director, Art Director and Managing Director all liked my versatility so I'm rather being hired as a photographer/illustrator/designer... oh just a bit of everything. I'll probably be doing some photo retouching and perhaps some simpler films as well.
The younger you are, the more you dream about being an artist sitting alone in your loft all day painting and looking in magazines that have interviews with you. But the older you get, you realize that human contact and a little bit routine actually makes you happier. At least it's like that for me. I met a freelance illustrator yesterday during an interview and she was all Oh don't bother about safety! Don't think about money, take a few jobs and study some classes in between. I informed her that I had been studying for 6 years and that I actually wanted to get on with things. I want to have an every day job, colleagues and enough money so that I can finally buy a place and live with my boyfriend. But in the creative world it's often a little taboo to think like this because safety is the opposite of crazy creativity. Haha... oh well...
My shop has free shipping until sunday!
