Last doodle for today, nothing else to upload as studies were done traditionally and my mobile phone's camera is not the best.
Appart from that, I'd like to share these links with you.
OK, no, I do not only like to share it with you,
I really want you to watch and read what Stephen Silver is trying to achieve. For all of us. That is you, and me, and him and everyone in the creative industry.
He starts talking about how we are not prepared for business life at most of the art schools
about how artists are treated in general
points out on what we should have a closer look
and that we shouldn't give others our work for free
An Interview with him you can download. About an hour. The way he talks reminds me of Anthony Jones.
Part 1 and Part 2 of another speech of him
Also make sure to check his facebook page
For me, I have no idea what it is like outside my little, cushy room.
Of course I thought about it, how to get to work, how to be found on the Internet, how to promote myself, which persons and studios and companies to know, how to write contracts.
But let's be honest, these are thoughts that are just fluttering at the side of the big big "Get the basics done"-one.
I have no experience. I barely know people who are out there for longer than 1 year.
That is why I am grateful for any kind of information that provides us for some not so fluffy situations.
Situations we can prepare ourselves for. I'm not keen on dealing with one punch after another. So you are, aren't you?
After watching I felt how another layer of armour wraps arround me and how a third eye grows there at my back.
I still have no experience but people like him give us the chance to at least be mentally prepared.
Please take your time and watch his videos if you haven't done it yet.
Informationwise it is not a highlevel speech - but it is indeed very motivating. Hopefully he tells us more details.
And for the end of this pretty long post of mine an amusing but sad clip: A woman making others feel how freelancers feel like sometimes
