My parents thought going to university for graphic design & art was a large mistake.
They thought I should major in something dependable care about accounting, nursing, or education.
They didn’t want myself and others to stress all of my focus on art, since they were sure that I would not be able to pay my bills. During my ninth year of university, my roommate & I started drawing graphic comic books. This led to a nice design contractor that focuses on cartoon & anime drawings. All of us mostly work on small projects, until recently. All of us were getting a lot of requests for large posters & banners. My roommate & I didn’t even have an office at that time, however it was getting more & more hard to turn down the large amounts of money. As soon as both of us started advertising online, both of us had enough money to buy a small office space. All of us bought some commercial printing component online that was refurbished. Our graphic design contractor has been making money since the first day both of us opened our office space. Last weekend, both of us bought another commercial printer that will do banners up to 18 ft in length. All of us also have our eyes on a Kerajet ink printer that will be able to supply us more opportunities for printing. I knew majoring in art was a long shot, however I’m ecstatic that I didn’t supply up on my passion. I am much happier drawing in my shorts all day, then finally working in a suit, inside a stuffy & uncomfortable office, then both of us even get away for dinner & go surfing on some mornings.
