Some Progress

I called the record company, and even though I didn't get the answer I wanted, it wasn't exactly the worst case scenario. He said there wasn't really art or design needed until August, and asked me to email any work I've done recently. I emailed him a link to the poster I made and said they could keep it for free. He was impressed with the design, said he'd definitely keep me in mind for future art needs. I'm not gonna hold my breath on it, though. I'm going to try to find other local labels or bands to pair up with.

I've also decided to stick with Gimp for now, instead of Photoshop. I was able to make a good quality poster without paying tons of money for Photoshop's software. I'll be writing a simple tutorial on how to make a poster (like the one in my last blog post) either tomorrow or the day after.

  1. I can't wait for the tutorial, I was always crap at designing things (not to mention art in general) so hopefully it'll really help me out.

  4. Bummer that you didn't immediately get the job man. Hopefully they call you back, or you find a good steady stream of work here soon. Looking forward to your tutorial. I love Gimp, but I am very novice in using it properly.

  8. You are very modest. I know that there will be other opportunities for you very soon. I can't wait to see the tutorial, maybe I can learn a few things.

  9. Sometime you gotta give away a little freebie just to get some attention. Good on you for not following the mainstream use of Photoshop.
