A brilliant video about the difference between being a “designer” and a professional. And making sure you get paid in the process. 38 minutes long, but worth every second for the experience you’ll be exposed to.

As a designer, illustrator, photographer, or creative it’s very important to make sure you have a contract in place with a client. Not only will it protect you, but a good contract should make sure the client is protected too. So without further ado I present to you Mike Monteiro | F*ck You. Pay Me.

Dear Tumblr (or anybody that follows me),
Anyone know of a good food to go with apple cider?

WIP of a new drawing I’m working on. Not sure how much motivation I’ll gather for it, but it looks like it could be interesting I guess.

Scrap composition for my second Illustration project. Not that there was anything fundamentally wrong with it, merely my professor felt I could try a different angle and see how it rolled. In the end it turned out better (in my opinion) than this but I hate to see this lay about and rot away in my art folder.

Rough color and Lineart.
