Self Censorship and Feeling Judged.Im sharing this around because its something I feel extremely strong about. I wont sit idly by and let good artists be strongarmed into feeling jugded, second guessing and self censoring (removing from portfolio) their own work.Self Censorship and Feeling Judged.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you feel that way, my message to you is this:
I received some really troubling PM's today. Please don't feel you need to self-censor your work if you enjoy making pinups / sexy girls.

Regardless of how prominant of an artist you are, or where you work in our industry, your free time, is YOURS. Feel free to express who you are, NOT who other people think you should be.
Your eternal friend,

Getting a Job: A collection of notesHello, fellow carbon-based life forms! I went to a lecture yesterday all about interviews and how to get a job. It's a little tailored for creative people, but I'm sure even non-artists will gain something from reading this. In any case, I hope you'll enjoy it!

• Stress why you want to work there- how can you help THEM achieve THEIR goals?
• Find out their values- make sure they are similar to yours
• Evaluate the atmosphere of the company- is it a relaxed or tense setting? Do people greet you as you walk in?
• Find common ground with your interviewer. Look for something in their office you can talk about and relate with. Make them
