Been a while!

Hey NG!

So I'm ashamed to say I've not been working on anything personal the past 7 months. I wish I was.

Started a job as a Graphic Designer in June and it's been a real job experience with a steady income. The steady income part is the most appealing, as creating content for the web just gives you various bursts of money which are sometimes unreliable. I do miss creating what I want to make on my terms, though. 

I've learned so much. The company I work with uses Drupal as a CMS for all four of their children company websites. Before I began working here I didn't even know PHP and now I'm the only person who can understand how their sites function internally.

I've learned a few new 3D programs, including NX, Solidworks, and Keyshot.

I designed a huge booth that was put up at a huge industrial convention in Orlando, FL. (POWERGEN)

Any advice I can give to people who are just getting out of college with a degree in animation.. don't just look for games or movie studios to hitch onto. There are other industries interested in your services. The companies that wanted to hire me were either medical (which pays well) or Oil&Gas related (which pays really well). They can help you build up some capital to help support you later when you try to achieve your dreams.
