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?

My badge commission from touchofsnow on FA arrived! It’s adorable. June doesn’t seem like he’s too happy though. X3

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.

so i’ve been toying with the idea of taking commissions for the longest time now, and now that one of my favorite record labels has put out a really gorgeous clear, square, hand lathe-cut version of one of their latest releases in an edition of 18, i figured raising money…

I don’t normally reblog things but seriously though, if you’re looking for some affordable, quality commissions make sure you check my friend here out. He’s been belting these things out for a while now, and honestly they’re worth it. Plus you get a snazzy piece of custom art you can hang on your wall without paying an arm and a leg! Go check him out. You will not be disappointed. :3
