Designer, Artist, Writer, Business Support & Teacher
Last active: 2 months ago
I have spent most of my career in design, art production and art. Some notions about the art field are true, like the fact that you need to be detail oriented and have computer skills. I've worked for a group of newspapers for over 3 1/2 years and before that about seven years I have worked a company that produce products for the military.
I have dealt directly with customers not only with designs but also taking orders and estimating the cost and time to complete them. A big part of creating for other people is to understanding what they want.
Important skills I possess are customer service and good communication. A basic step is convincing the person that you comprehend what they convey to you and that your company can do it without complications. The ability to clearly communicate ideas back and forth is also an attribute I possess.
Between this and past jobs I have dealt with preparing art for all types of print. I have helped produce items such as: labels, stickers, books, comic books, patches, hats, banners, buttons, flags, forms, coins and more.
I've also been a political cartoonist and a self published comic book artist with a comic book distributed nationwide. Elsewhere, my comic book, was based off of a comic strip that I did in college and printed in multiple college papers. I did everything on it. I wrote it, drew it, set it up for print, hired the printer, did the press check, sent book out to distributors and went to comic shows to promote it. Though I'm not presently active with a comic book, I continue to go to related conventions and keep up with that field and related market.
So what does this mean to you? You are looking at someone who is use to dealing with customers, estimating time and cost, finding printers and preparing work for them. I'm use to deadlines and keeping them. I'm a person with advance skills in drawing and design. Computer skills and the ability to learn new programs are definitely present. I have been in a stable position for a long period of time. I'm a person with the drive to do things and the skills to get things done.
