Been a Working

Mon Oct 3, 2016, 11:15 PM
Just an update:
Finally got a job as an illustrator! WOOOHOOO!
(I was told my stick figure cartoons from my blog was what made them choose me over other candidates. I TOLD YOU stick figures were awesome. (*coff-- um, or I've at least been insistent.)
I work for a company who makes professional development tools for teachers and school districts. I work in the production end and I made graphics for anything they ask for ranging from info graphics to short animations. I have some versions of stuff we didn't use that I want to see if I can get permission to post.
But I think the most valuable thing for me in this is that my boss loves what I do. That's a huge boost to my usually suffering moral. So I've been working full time so I frequently find myself creatively spent at the end of the day but know that DJDO is still alive if just barely.

So Stay tuned ya'll.

I am an enterprising, visual story teller. Most call this an artist but I feel the term is too broad. Since the time I could hold a pencil I’ve found a passion not just in artistic expression but doing so in a way that includes a broad audience. I revel at the opportunity to present a viewer with a piece of work and watch their reaction, be it laughter, tears, indignation, or triumph. This desire has shaped and molded my life to bring me to where I am today.
I come from an inherently creative family. Being the only girl of four children I’ve been exposed to quite an adventurous life. Each family member has taught me a wide range of skills from auto mechanics to music. My parents always encouraged me to be inventive and independent and I’ve carried these principles into adulthood.
Today I am always looking for new things to try my hand at; recently I took up the violin and taught myself to play. I am a devout book binder and my other hobbies consist of finding the most challenging and random craft to make every other month no matter the medium. I also have the heart and soul of a satirist and have spent the greater part of my life creating works to entertain and amuse, my current means of delivery being the internet. My story is just beginning and I am eagerly working toward a life of productivity and prominence.

I won first in the State High School Editorial Cartoon category. It was a cartoon depicting the hot issue of the Terry Shivo controversy, it asked the question: "Right to Live or Right to Die?"

I've graduated with my Bachelors of Visual Art

Hi :D

Um, I have a question about DJDO.

Okay, um. This is probably going to sound impertinent, but here goes.

If you draw the Dutchman crew again could you maybe add Worm somewhere subtly in the background at all? It's okay if you can't. I understand. He's not a cannon character and no-one would really recognise him.

I forget which one he is, do you have a picture?
