Quick Draw!

Huzzah! I have had an epiphany! Why do I toil with design, restricting myself with computer generated vector images? I love to draw. I love to create. I have spent endless hours recently ogling over other such creative minds and I have decided. Illustration. 
this brick wall represents the brick wall I hit en-route to my new-found euphoria of discovery.

I still know my way around Adobe CS, however I cannot tell you how happy I am to know that I don't HAVE to restrict myself. Why not draw for a living? If 7-year-old Melissa wanted to do it, why can't 21-year-old Melissa do it?
I hope someone can share my joy of discovering what truly makes you happy. Isn't that what life is all about?

Summer's here

I just have to say how embarrassing it is to show up to a portfolio review dripping with sweat. Or atlas on the cusp of it. To any potential interviewees, I apologize in advance. It's hard to look nice and not sweat en route to an interview. I'm terribly, terribly sorry.
