When you frst start hunting,you have this,
. You think yourwork is ready and you want to show itto everyone. You want to work, and youwant your designs to change the ace o tomorrow. Sadly, no one will return yourcalls.

A ewmonths into the hunt, it was time or aYou do your best to pre-pare orthe “Real World”, but honestly, when youare a reshman, or even a sophomore,ew are thinking that ar ahead. Feware even thinking past the critique o the painting due in a couple o hours. Iwanted to soak in everything I could tobe a well-rounded artist.
was told time and time again... “Donot go to art school i you wish tomake money.” I knew exactly what Iwanted to do and there was nothingthat was going to stop me rom com-pleting my goals. I was accepted intoone o the best art colleges in the world.School was grueling and it only ueledmy passion. I have at this point aban-doned my computer and all technology to become a “traditionalist”. I wanted tosubmerse mysel, because I thought abetter understanding o classical tech-niques led to better design. I was upsetwith the school or wanting to become“paperless”.A year has passed since graduation.I have returned to the computer andhave learned to unite all means to anend. I have worked in a company, Ihave reelanced, I have given birth toMassCreate, and this book is the nextstep.
