Warning: Just a boring journal about personal life.
As some of you know, I'm a graphic design major. The other day I was showing my personal work off to a new friend. He asked directly, "Are you a professional concept artist?"
I was VERY ecstatic about this. He knew nothing about my degree or what I've been going through as an artist. The fact he thought my sketches were on professional grade level really touched me. I've always dreamed of being a concept artist, however there isn't a degree offered as such so I had to go for Graphic Design as my major. I really don't care for it. It's not that I hate it, but comparatively to my other talents, graphic design is my weakest area. Although I make exceptional grades, I am always bottom of the bucket in my class when it comes to graphic design creativity.
Just within the last few months I decided to say, "fuck it all" and market myself as a concept artist and illustrator using graphic design as a marketing solution. 90% of these graphic design majors can't draw a stick figure so why not make myself stand out and show them what I am truly all about. My grades have improved from low B's to High A's, teachers and students had NO clue how well I could draw. Some even have come up tp me and told me personally how awesome it is that's I'm that diverse and how I should make that my key marketing for myself.
