Thank You, Come Again!

If you’ve filtered through the waffle of my ‘About’ page, I talk about how I freelance with Graphic Design jobs. I won’t pretend it’s a full-time job (or that I’m a pro) but some of the jobs I’ve done in the past have been posters, illustration cards and corporate presentation-y stuff.

Pretty much all of the jobs I get are through people I know, which is awesome not only because it means networking really does work, but also because somehow (without me even trying) I’ve given off the impression that my degree in Animation is also a degree in Graphic Design. To some that may seem frustrating, but to me it’s a win-win! Hooray for temporary jobs while I animate and learn about compositing!

I’m posting about this job:

Graphic Design Wedding

– because my client was really happy! That’s not to say I’ve ever had an unhappy client, but this one was especially thankful and sent me this photo:

Wedding Invite Package

– of when she’d had all the designs printed and bundled together with a piece of fabric! It’s especially nice because I’ve never done a wedding invite before, let alone worked with typography (which is actually really tricky). Nonetheless I found it really fun to learn about, the invite looks beautifully rustic and I’m glad my customer is happy! So thank you, come again!

P.S. If you like what I’ve done (and you’re willing to negotiate a fee that doesn’t constitute slave labour) then feel free to contact me about a job! Also check out my friend Emma’s website if you need commissions for awesome illustration or design:

First Q&A

Me looking at my past animations:

Sad face. Kind of E.T-ish

Sad face. Kind of E.T-ish

Me after my first Animation Mentor Live Q&A:

Happy face!

Happy face!

Yeee-ahh! Do you see those glamorous glasses? That fashionably chic hair – AKA a bun? That ultra-white Hollywood smile?

That’s right, my transformation is all because I had my first Q&A today with my mentor Anthony Wong! Or, as he allows me to call him – get ready – Anthony. YUP, first name basis with a Pixar animator. Next step, virtual high-five.

On top of that, I met some cool classmates! Most are in the US, making me one of the international students. WOAH. So that’s why I look like E.T in the first photo; I’m an illegal alien.

Can’t wait to start animating and hopefully when it’s good enough, I can share some of it with you guys! Happy face! AND GO QUEENSLAND MAROONS! 😀
