Today in a couple of hours I'm going on a job interview. The thing is I really want this job, because I've been wanting to get a second job (besides my own freelancing illustration/design company) for quite some time. And voilá! An opportunity presents itself. I saw that a company that seems really cool with over 40 million users on their site were in need of an illustrator. The brief? To create pretty clothes in illustrator from photographs of real clothes, to fit on a kind of fashion doll on the internet.
Is this my gig or WHAT?
So I applied, sent them my portfolio and CV, they got back to me and asked me to do a task for them, and I did... and then I didn't hear from them in weeks and I thought; "I didn't get it". And yesterday they asked me to come for an interview today.
Ok ok I know, I didn't get it yet, and I will surely pout if I don't get it but it won't be the end of the world either... but either way, I'm excited, and I look forward going to this interview. I feel like "hey, I'm your girl!" but the feeling needs to be mutual ne?
I guess I'll let you know as soon as I know what will happen...
Either way, this or some other jobs I've been applying to; a change WILL happen this year, where I get a second job and I'll probably do more gallery-pieces and less illustrations for a while. Just trying it out.
thank you for your lovely support, your friendly messages and all your faves. I receive between 100 and 200 messages each day lately and it's hard to keep up, but I read them all!
And I feel so happy to have your support, that makes me think that even if I wouldn't get this job for example, I still feel happy because I have someone out there who enjoys my art!
So thank you!
And now I'll turn up the volume, I'm listening to Rabbit Heart by Florence + The Machine and Ladyhawke singing "Magic" (firemane playlist haha) and I'm off to make myself pretty. Some days I wake up feeling "wow life can be pretty hard" but this morning I'm light as a feather. The thing is not winning all the time, it's to be presented with lovely opportunities and having the freedom to try them out! And occasionally it all goes very well
I know because life was kind to me business-wise last year, but also I learn from falling on my butt many many times too that it's not the end of the world if one fail. You just have to dry those tears and brush off the dust from your clothes and get up and try again!
Have a lovely rest-of-the-week now dahlings!
