Graduation, Website Launch, & a call for entries

Well, I did it...I graduated from college. About 2 and a half weeks ago. Hey, give me a break on the announcement, I needed a bit of a vacation! Anyway, I graduated and sent out my first batch of promo cards, so I feel like a "real" illustrator now. Though I think I'll feel more like one when I get my first job.

Though speaking of promo, I got my official portfolio site up and running, and although I'm not a web design guru, I'm pretty happy with it. Feel free to visit and link to me if you wish:


I also wanted to give my fellow artists a heads up and announce that Creative Quarterly (sister publication to 3x3 Magazine) is having a call for entries. The deadline is July 31st and there's only a $10 per entry fee. There's no maximum limit for the number of entries, and it isn't limited to just illustration. You can also submit fine art, graphic design, and photography. There are also separate sections for student and professional work. You can get more information from their website.

    Congrats on sending out your promo cards! I have yet to do that... It's been hectic over here!

    The call for entries looks interesting. What are you thinking of doing? (as in inspiration wise?) I'd love to stay critique buddies! Maybe run ideas off each other or something. ^.^

    You've got a lot of stuff going on (moving and a wedding!), so I can't blame you for not getting cards out yet. I only sent out 100 since that's what I could afford at the time. But I figure sending things off in stages might be a good way of going about it.

    I'm not sure exactly what I'll be submitting yet. I have a piece I'm working on right now and if I like how it comes out I may submit that, along with one or two other pieces. I'll probably just submit illustrations I've already made. And I would love to stay critique buddies! I think we fledgling illustrators need all the resources we can get! :)
