Bah! The job hunt here is insane.
I really don’t think it matters how many people are actually going out of their way to help me out — I’m probably never going to find anything. And yes, yes, I know. “Don’t have that kind of attitude, Cheri!” “Keep your chin up!” “You can do it!”
Yadda, yadda, yadda.
Trust me, I’m trying.
I seriously believe that my best bet will be going to art school and either pursuing a degree in Illustration (which is what I actually want to do), or settling for Graphic Design (which is where all the money is).
Either way, it’s not like I can’t dabble in both and see which one tickles my fancy more, right?
Anyhoo, off to grab my coffee and put this portfolio together for WonderCon 2011 this weekend.
I have tickets for all three days! :D
I’m gonna be storing my best work via iPad and hitting up all of these portfolio reviews during the event, meeting up with other artists and doing art trades, etc. Should be good times. I’m even bringing a few old sketchbooks with me that I’ve filled up to kind of give people an idea of what I’m capable of via traditional mediums!
… And I have to say, while I love my digital work, my freaking pencil work is where it’s at.
If you’re going, let me know and we can possibly meet up!
And if you’re not going, get your tickets now! They are surprisingly cheap.
I’ll even draw a quick illustration for you if you bring a sketchbook or notepad with you! No charge! :D … But only because I was late in registering and wasn’t able to sign up for my own booth where I can overcharge all of you anyways. Herp derp. :3 Lucky you?
I’ll be Tweeting where I am constantly during the event, so if you’d like to meet up with me (or even if you’re walking by and spot me randomly), please don’t be shy! Just come right up to me, say hello, and let’s gab! I’ve already met so many of my fans/readers/viewers in person, and it’s always such a pleasure to hear how excited y’all are. So please don’t be nervous!
Standing at a good 5’1 and weighing in at 93lbs, I sincerely doubt that I’ll be intimidating.
Come say hello and score your free art from me! Bring a sketchbook so I can draw in it. :3
XOXO Cheri XOXO
