“As an older, more accomplished, equally unsuccessful artist, I beseech you, don’t give it away. As a matter of principle. Do it for your colleagues, your fellow artists, because if we all consistently say no they might, eventually, take the hint. It shouldn’t be professionally or socially acceptable — it isn’t right — for people to tell us, over and over, that our vocation is worthless.”—Slaves of the Internet, Unite! - NYTimes.com (via designgeekery)
If you work for a company and you get a request for your company’s logo. Please for the love of pete send a vector logo (most likely a eps) or a hi-res (if you can’t figure out the res look at the file size if its size is in kb it’s not hi-res).
“You are not an artist simply because you paint or sculpt or make pots… An artist is a poet in his or her own medium. And when an artist produces a good piece, that work has mystery, an unsaid quality; it is alive.”—
Hi, just offering my two cents here: don't jump headfirst into a degree in x college because of its reputation alone. In the end it all comes down to the effort you're willing to make and whether you're prepared to keep working harder and building a strong portfolio. Be it in animation or any other field of art (I'm a Painting student outside N. America for instance!) While a degree will help you shine, it's your portfolio that matters most. Make connections! Work hard - never quit! Good luck!
