Change is afoot! I have decided it is time to try something new. For me, that means focusing on my art. Thusly, I have quit my damn fine fulltime-job at Titoonic and decided to go freelance.
This is a big step for me. I have consciously quit a challenging, interesting job at an innovative company with the best and most talented colleagues in the business for the sole purpose of “focusing on my art” (cue heroic tune). The outlook could very well be that of a starving artist: bleak. One might even ask, why the hell did I do that? In fact, I’ve asked myself that very question more than a couple of times.
Essentially it all boils down to this: I love doing personal graphical work like the stuff that graces the new homepage. I would love to be able to make a living by doing just that. If I don’t try, I will most likely regret it more than I already regret quitting my job. So, as of November 1st, I will be freelance.
I will be taking on clients, doing small web-related projects to make a living: logos, identities, website / interface designs, usability consulting, that sort of thing. The idea is to make enough of a living to have some spare time to focus on those personal projects of mine. I mentioned an art book once, maybe now is the time. I was once asked if I sell posters, well I’d love to see if that’s worthwhile. For now, I’ve put my money on the prospect that things’ll work out dandy. I can’t wait to find out if it will.
