You said “Free”?

Who would ever do work for free? Ask yourself, what could I possibly gain from doing work for free? I’ll tell you. How about experience, exposure and a sense of helping out someone else. When I first started working in the design and illustration business I did jobs for free all the time. They may not put food on the table at that moment, but the dividends could pay off well into the future. A good example of this is the “Art in Transit” poster series I did for the city of Boise. While I did get paid, the amount was well short of what I would have generally gotten paid for a project of that magnitude. However, the exposure my art received was beyond anything I could have afforded at that time. And the truth of the matter is, I am still reaping the benefits of that exposure to this day. Some may call it the luck of the draw but I saw it as a great opportunity to have my artwork appear in a very public setting and have all the printing done on another’s dime. Look for these opportunities wherever you can. Some may not take off, but you never know when one will and just where it might take you.

Let’s work together to make 100 different images of all 50 states. I need people from all over the U.S. to submit their idea of what unique spot in their state is worthy of becoming a piece of art.

When I got out of college with my BFA in hand, I emerged into a world, much like today, when jobs were scarce and graphic design and illustrator positions were on the endangered species list. I knew what I wanted to do for a living, but I had little to no experience at knocking on doors and showing my portfolio. Although the traditional method of going from Agency to Agency showing your wears has it’s advantages. More likely than not you will meet someone who has a friend who works at an agency that will open the doors for your first...
