I haven’t attempted digital art for so long that I almost forgot how to draw. Being occupied with job hunting and thesis writing (which didn’t even progress) really got my hands shackled.
But since the outbreak is getting worse and it doesn’t seem like companies will continue hiring people, I kind of gave up trying so hard. I’m still trying, but not putting 100% effort into everything because I know companies out there are just displaying job openings for the sake of display.
So I decided to pick up my drawing utensils and take a break from all the stressful work. Drawing reminded me how I love art but not exactly being good at it. I realized that I’ve been applying to the same type of companies: those who have an aesthetic for design and somehow still connected to my field of study in university.
Though I failed all of them.
At some point I wondered if I should just apply to fields that I’m not even interested in. But it’s even harder to bring myself to apply to those kind of companies since I have to write “reason for applying” essay each time. And that’s taxing.
While thinking all of those I got reminded of my mom’s little dream to open her own bakery/coffee shop. I thought it’d be great if we could turn that into a reality one day so I started doodling an icon for her ‘future’ shop.
I liked how it turned out. I changed the style a bit since I’ve always wanted to try this kind of art style. Maybe I’ll attempt this kind of style more in the future.
