Pop Pythons Collection Release

| by | Announcements, Art, Business | 0 comments

Exciting news! After months of research, hard work, late nights, & eleventh hour frustrations, my new product line Pop Pythons is launching today! April 28th, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. Eastern time, to be specific! This set of eight prints is available on my Etsy store, RainyCrazePrints.etsy.com. They originate from a larger collection of inked drawings focusing on ball python morphs, which I did for Inktober 2017; they have been digitized & colored especially for this release. The Pop Pythons collection is limited edition, so when they are gone, they’re gone! My portfolio site, this one, isn’t turning into an ecommerce … Continued

Currently, RainyCraze.com is set up as a portfolio site so I could apply to graphic design jobs, with the thought of freelancing design services on the side. After getting a print production/mockup artist role last year [& being pretty good at it, if I do say so myself], I’ve gotten to know myself better & what I really find fulfilling in the design field. Examining all my previous experiences in … Continued

Working Remotely as the New Standard

| by | Business | 0 comments

It seems to me that if all your work is done by computer, there’s isn’t much to keep you from working remotely, especially graphic designers. Long-standing businesses with dedicated servers on-site filled with years of assets & files may have complications, sure, but plenty of workarounds exist to suite most office jobs. Maybe I’m just bitter about so many graphic design job listings in Los Angeles & New York City while I’m stuck in Charlotte for the next few years. On the flip side, design is rated among the top fields for remote working, & for freelancing it’s almost a … Continued
