So I have been thinking a lot about my blog lately. I don't think it is very focused and I never really meant for it to be anything other than a place to put up my artwork.
Of course, I've been working in the creative industry for about a year now (practicing for about 4) and I believe my skills have improved enough that I am comfortable selling my artwork and helping some other people visually communicate their stories, ideas and whatever else they might have in mind.
Deep down, my passion is to be an illustrator. I love cute and appealing characters and I strive to create these very things every day. Children's literature is another realm I am eager to explore. Becoming a children's book illustrator is one of my many dreams.
I am also interested in working in game design. Only the fun/cute/appealing ones though. I'm not that into army men vs. ninjas.... unless they are super cute army men and ninjas... with nerf guns.
Pretty much anything beautiful, pretty, fun, or cute is what I am after!
One thing to keep in mind is that successful companies market the cute stuff.... and that is simply because people LOVE cute. If you have an app that functions a little bit better than another app, but the lower functioning app is beautifully designed and has cute characters in it... I am pretty sure the aesthetically pleasing app will win out!
BTW, I also am interested in GUI design for apps. I believe a clean, intuitive design with that little bit of juvenile fun is the key to an enjoyable app experience!
Why am I saying all of this?
I have decided that I am tired of acting like a "grown-up". There is no reason why you can't be an organized, hard-working, motivated individual with a little bit of 7-year-old inspiring your creative side.
On that note, I would like to introduce my new header. (Complete with tagline and awesome little monster)
