I used to always think of the phrase “you have to spend money to make money” as some typical marketing and promotional strategy for large companies. I have recently found out that this is simply untrue. This phrase comes from taking senior year portfolio class. The upside to the class is taking the time to do research into what makes a successful designer. The downside: I am severely lacking in professional accessories. So once again i turned to my savior and my sin, the Internet, to aid me.
After a few hours I had been able to find a portfolio, padfolio, business card holder, envelope stickers, mat board, portable tabletop easel, & external hard drive for just around 200 for everything to be shipped right to me. I love the hell outta you Internet- you let me save so much money in exchange for all my time. I’m pretty alright with that, plus I can say I’ve also been able to upgrade my abilities to “google it” from intermediate to mastery level after this recent spree of investing in myself.
Behind the scenes recently I have been hard at work designing my resume and other such bits in preparation for my graduation in just three short months. I’m hoping that soon they will be far enough along to to do some creative cropping to put up here to incite you all. Likewise I have been working to update my computer situation so that i am able to which over from WordPress.com to WordPress.org in hopes that this change will allow me to have more creative flexibility with the site and do a more effective layout for my comics.
It’s going to be a lengthy process to get there, so please bare with me with I get my finances and fall semester in order. In the meantime i will be working on ‘Press Start” behind the scene as well so that when the new site is up and running I’ll have a nice little stack to pull from and not be constantly behind anymore. All in all things are changing rapidly at the moment and have quite a bit on my plate! Quite frankly I’m having a hard time keeping track of the days their flying by so fast, but I’ll do my best to keep the updates here as regular as possible.
Now go enjoy the changing leaves while I go draw up my own piles to jump into.
