At the start of this week I found a job ad for illustrator, for a brandnew company here that's gonna make entertainment for kids and family. Such as books, colouring pictures, comics, e-cards, online games, etc etc etc...
I responded, sent my portfolio and was invited to an interview very quickly. This morning!
And I got the job!
It's a new kind of system, the team of artists and writers get together to work on various projects and designs. We have an office desk with mail and such, and photoshop, plus one big working area with drawing tables and all materials gathered for us.
My job: illustration, storywriting and music composing.
All in one! It's gonna be a constant process of creativity and design. I expect it will be kinda tough in the beginning, going from parttime/unemployed to fulltime. I won't be able to do freelance stuff anymore (not that I need to
) and no time for my homestudy. But that's okay too, because the way I consider it it's a job, a dream and scholing in one! The payment is fair, it's just ahove the minimum salary. But that's alright, it's all worth it!
Ahh.. I can hardly wait. I'm starting at the end of august. But in the meantime I've been given the assignment to design some mascottes for the company, for a freelance payment.
YAY! Dreams don't die! *strikes pose*
I have the feeling it hasn't completely sunk in yet, but well... I have to be a little bit of a critic though, since it's brandnew and they only know how it's gonna work in theory.. It's not yet been brought into practice. But no worries, I'm gonna do my very best!
I love you guys, and thanks for everything!
PS: 6 weeks until Castlefest, ohhh yea!
