I am a real person now! + 3X3 Golds
It's been almost a month since I last posted. Sorry for being off the hook for so long! A lot has happened in this last month: I earned my BFA from RISD, got an apartment in NY and lost it, went on an epic family road trip for almost 3 weeks and just got back to Rhode Island.
Now that school is done and vacation is over, I am officially starting my career as a freelance illustrator, need to start cold-calling art directors and sending out mailers... Stepping into a new page of life is very exciting yet kind of scary at the same time. For the first time, there won't be any class schedule, homework assignments or grading. I need to be the one who's setting my own goal, my own pace, my own evaluations...Many people have warned me that freelancing takes a lot of self-motivation and is not an uneasy path, but I guess I will just see how it goes. Make it or not, it will probably be pretty fun looking back at this post a few years from now haha
A couple good news:
-Boy on Bear and Transferring Risk are awarded Gold Medal, The New Standard is awarded Bronze Medal from the 3X3 Student Show No.7
-BowlCut and Lost in Translation are selected to appear in the Applies Art Student Show 2010
Thank you to my parents, RISD, Chris Buzelli, SooJin Buzelli and all my friends for helping, supporting and tolerating me along the way!
