Your article has really inspired me. I’m a junior currently pursuing an undergraduate art degree against the wishes of my parents; I want to pursue a profession that I love, not a profession I have to force myself to do. Sometimes, I feel absolutely horrified at the possibility of my decision to turn out to be a mistake and be met with my parents’ scorn and “I-told-you-so” or other condescending remarks. You have convinced me that I must push for the best and don’t doubt myself.
I really want to know, where and how did you start looking for jobs? I am also considering designing and drawing concept art for studios in the future, but I am at a loss as to where I can possibly begin. Can you give me any pointers?
