I had a mid-life crisis at 21. Then I went to University.
I'm kind of having another mid-life crisis now.
Somethings been niggling away inside me for a while now.
If I don't try to be a Graphic Designer now, then I never can. I'll be 'typecast' as an Artworker. I already am. But I have the degree as an excuse now. Only now.
If I go straight back into Artworking, I can kiss Graphic Design goodbye.
If I try out Graphic Designing now, I can always quit and go back to Artworking. I have over 5 years experience as solid back-up. And a 'keen' and 'creative eye' is always a plus for a Creative Artworker ;)
If I go off and be a teacher, what will become of me when I get back? Whats the point of teaching? What am I achieving?
I like Graphic Design.
I enjoy Graphic Design.
So why am I taking the easy option out and looking for Artworking roles?
Why am I avoiding the situation and looking at Japan.
I might as well at least try Graphic Design.
It makes sense right?
That said, there is a credit crisis on...
Damn bad timing...
And another bad timing thing -- the bloody tube strike is the same days as my exhibition! everyone is calling me up and saying they cant make it.... whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
