New things

I'm excited to say that I have a new job at Rockwell Automation in Milwaukee starting April. I'm going to be a graphic designer there and can't wait to learn 5,000 billion new things. Along with the new apartment I moved into at the beginning of the month, this will really help shake up my life, which had become rather droll. I'm hoping that all of the positive energy will feed my illustration and help bolster my slow freelance career. I'll keep you all posted. Cheers!

And because no post would be complete without an image, I've taken the liberty of sketching up a pretty little fashion illustration. This is from a photograph by the Sartorialist. I'm thinking about maybe sharpening my fashion illustration skills by copying more of his photos... they're so lovely, and it's really fun to just draw sometimes without thinking. Paying attention to lines and media and just completely ignoring subject matter.

I love that illustration, I want to wear that outfit. I have something similar on today actually, but my shorts are a little longer, with dark purple tights and boots.
