This week has been unexpected in the best possible way. On Wednesday, I accepted a new full time job!
A few weeks ago, I started looking for a part-time job to have some steady cash as I work to build my freelance business. I was checking out barista jobs at the Colectivo Coffee website when I saw they had a posting for a full-time graphic designer. The opportunity seemed too good to pass up and so I applied thinking I had no chance.
Fast forward past a couple interviews, some coffee chats, and some heavy emotions/decision-making, and I was offered and accepted the position. Colectivo has been a brand I've admired since I moved to Milwaukee and I can't wait to be a part of it!
If you had told me two months ago that I would have a new full-time design job, I would have told you to shut up with that noise. But life is unexpected and things almost never work out the way we plan. My dream to become a freelance illustrator is still very real and I intend to continue working toward it. But I why should I pass up free coffee in the meantime? :)
Girl Gang Astrology :: I've been slowly working my way through some spot illustrations of the zodiac reimagined as a girl gang that rules the stars! So far they've been really fun and have left me with cravings for pizza. Thinking I'll compile them into a poster when I'm all done.
Vintage Sewing Nerds Guide to Netflix :: I realize that I am WAY late to the party on this, but I recently started watching Downton Abbey and I'm totally hooked! After finishing all three seasons of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries (thanks for the suggestion, Marisa!) I was really wanting another period show with great costuming. This list of streamable period dramas broken down by era will keep my costume hunger satisfied for a while.
