I am resigning from Hallmark in the near future.
I am leaving my job with mixed feelings. I will miss my co-workers and amazing managers, all of whom contributed to an unforgettable experience. Hallmark was a deviation from where I thought I’d end up after college, and I’m glad I gave it a try. I became a better person and artist thanks to Hallmark, and I am proud that I created heartfelt products that enriched people’s lives and relationships.
But, I want to be young for once and take risks, and follow my passions to foolish extremes and to love my art again. I am very frightened because I still have bills to pay, but I don’t want to live a life where I wake up when I am 50, and feel like I’m 100, and realize: I never did what I really wanted.
If you have any arts grant, contract, freelance, or studio tips for me, I would appreciate your advice through private message or e-mailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will write more about my specific goals soon, and my new digital portfolio and demo reel will be up ASAP.
But, for now: thanks for all of your support and understanding guys. This is a big move for me.
Long time no see, DA friends! I'm sorry I've been slow to post here. I may have some sketches you missed over on my tumblr, but ultimately my hands are tied. I have a big project I've been dealing with at work as well as coming to terms with taking this big leap. I’m in the middle of crunch-time right now for the project I mentioned, and pulling long days and dealing with last minute changes and all that fun stuff, but I’m ALMOST there. After that, you should start seeing more stuff from me!
