My deviant friends, i logged in today for the first time in over a year which is quite sad, but let me enlighten you all on the things i have been doing with myself.
I deferred uni (CSU) at the beginning of the year, i was studying my degree in back of arts. A few things i realised while studying were:
-i felt i wasnt getting anywhere, all id do is try to get a good grade but end up with just a pass.
-rumours scared me, that its harder for female graphic designers to get into the industry due to stupid reasons of which i wont explain at this point.
-it was mentally draining and i found myself not showing up for class/lectures. all motivation went straight out the window!!
When i deferred uni, i started writing. writing is a strong passion of mine, i love it and i also enjoy reading. writing for me is just like reading a book as the story unfolds at my fingertips, so i never tire of writing. i have completed two fantasy novels, Lucy's Dragon and its sequel, though i put the third book on hold to write other things. if you wish to find out more about this please visit my facebook page as there are many other creations of mine as well as fan art and ideas for book covers for two of my novels, one of which i have not yet mentioned to you...or started!
I am currently un-employed, though i have a small freelance graphic design and illustration business which has its ups and downs!
I will say to you that sadly i wont be deviating or uploading any of my deviations any time soon as i am busy job seeking and writing. One day in the near future, when and if i become a published author, i will be holding a private competition for those who wish to have a go at designing book covers for my novels. though when the time comes, i will provide with information and descriptions to work from.
I am very hopefull at this time to become a published author, though the process is quite difficult, and the next time i speak with you i will be promoting my books! So buy them
) that is all for now
