Entered this piece into the Art Institute Online Scholarship Competition on deviantART as well as the Official website.
Applicants are required to write a 500-word-or-less essay on "How would you live your creative career" I thought I would share my essay with you deviants.
How would I live my creative career?
For many years I've loved creating art, something I honestly enjoy. The opportunity to have an art career is overwhelming.
First thing is first, the education I need for my creative career to get me started in the right direction.
I would like to live my career with confidence, so that my job will have a purpose to the challenge.
I want to be happy with my creative career, along with the confidence. Having a job that you will enjoy doing everyday, is something I've never experienced. I know that I would be happy having a creative career, because creating art makes me happy.
I want to experience the joy, the joy of completing a deadline with the confidence of knowing it's finished.
I love learning new things, and I can learn things quickly.
I know I am what a company is looking for, and with the right education, I believe they will find me.
I've came along way from starting to draw at a young age, and some years later I feel compelled to learn digital art, mostly photomanipulation.
I want to live my creative career, happy. So that I may be able to enjoy life as well.
Thats how I would live my creative career.
(204 words, oh well)
I chose this piece, really because of the title "I Control My Destiny." I feel the title stands out, just as the art itself does. I mixed alot of meanings into this piece. So no matter how bizarre it may seem, let the title be your guide.
A special thanx to those stock-holders.
