I got a job! This job makes me feel like a real life illustrator, and it’s a feeling I’m enjoying immensely. When I heard about this contract I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy it, maybe I’d get bored of it but it turns out I really like drawing physics diagrams. The job goes something like this: I get a sketch or an idea for a physics problem and then I have to draw a picture to help students understand the problem. It’s a bit technical, because it needs to be precise, but it’s also really creative. I am loving the job, in fact, and I’ll be really sad when the contract is over.
As a real life illustrator, I am amazed at all the different jobs I can do and have been approached to do in the past few years. A short list of recent work: physics diagrams, illustrated property maps, icon design, infographics design, logo design, bathtub art, family animal spirit portrait, art print design, mural design, report graphics and graphic novel art.
