What a crazy few weeks it’s been for me, and I can’t wait to share my astounding news. I’ve been busy creating some new designs for my portfolio, and I decided to take a break and write this blog; I’m rather excited to show off my work to my clients, who live right here in New York. The appreciation of art is one of the best things about living in New York City, and I can always find a gallery to inspire me to work harder on my designs. It’s great to live in a bustling city that thrives on the passion of its citizens. I’ve been working on this project and I haven’t had the time to update you on my latest news:
I’m working for Tam and Michael, a young couple that own an art gallery. My clients were really relaxed and had a certain flair for color and abstract art; I met them at a gallery on 57th, and after reviewing my artwork and integrity, we agreed that I would make graphics for their website. Of course, as a graphic designer/artist living in NY, my dream is to make money off of what I love. As it turns out, my clients are opening a second gallery on the lower East side and I’m making a logo for the website! It’s somewhere I can submit my paintings and get noticed by an audience, and of course, I want to get noticed! The project is ongoing so I can continue to make graphics and art for their gallery in the future, and Tam is excited to help me get noticed. I’m stoked to get my work out there and get some experience working for a gallery.
The best part about this project is the ability to work from home. New York City’s transportation is great, though, so I can at least walk or take a subway if I need inspiration for the project. Lately, they’ve been doing some renovations in my apartment building so it’s good to get away from the noise. I’m sure they make some less noisy compressors than the one being used, but what do I know. It’s not like I’m going to be researching brands or reading a bunch of Harbor Freight compressor reviews. There’s really great landscape and scenery in NYC; the city has great appreciation for art and nature. You would think a busy place like New York would have no time to slow down and appreciate the finer things in life, but it’s what keeps the people moving. From Broadway, to the galleries, and the busy life of the working human, my project will reflect the heart and soul of NYC: passion! Who are we, as people, without it?
