Ohhh fun what style are you looking for? Then I can do some suggestions for people 👌
Yeah same thing! I used to work mostly in tech as wel … I guess it makes “sense” with all the layoffs but I kept having hope that that wouldn’t affect freelancers.
Yeah that’s what I feel aswel but everyone has been so quiet. I also have been I guess, I feel a little scared sharing this sentiment on say twitter but maybe I should
I think we should get rid of the shame around having another job next to an art career (and I’m very very lucky mine has been in an art adjacent industry) but I suffer from this shame myself aswel.
I feel terrified to admit I’m going through a rough time financially while at the same time I’m gaining some momentum in my art practice.
Since I started painting and posting that more prominently I assume people just think that’s how I make all my money and I left illustration. While the reality is that without my clients I wouldn’t be able to paint at all.
To support my painting practice I do digital illustrations (and I have been for many years) but I have never had this much trouble finding work. Not sure if this is an industry wide thing or just a me thing.
My art is now on Uprise art and that’s such a dream come true 🥺👌 upriseart.com/artists/freder…
Sometimes when many cool things happen at the same time I just kinda freeze and cycle through everything in a loop for a day 🥺🤣
This is a base layer, so very thin paint. I like that if any base peeps out it’s not white. The lines are basically the sketch. When it’s finished it’ll most likely look very different. But I love the green light kinda vibe a lot so I’m going to try to incorporate it a little bit
I have an opening in my books to do illustration work 👀 let me know if you need some colorful illustration work or know someone that does! 💙
Yeah it sounds dumb but I was quite scared to repeat myself and actively tell people. 🥲
