I have been feeling pretty desperate and anxious since I lost my job and went into freelancing so I could devote more time to my fashion. Well that and because the economy is so desperately shitty that the jobs have been scarce. Specially good, high paying medical writing jobs that don't want you onsite , busting butt 60 hours a week, in basically... New Jersey.
Yes, I have gone hungry. Yes, I have been pulling through for the last 8 months by the sheer grace of God and the Loas and my gurdian angels, and making the rent , my car payment and the utilities has been miraculous month after month.
And I have not asked anyone (other than the Heavenly) for any help.
But what I have accomplished despite the circumstances is downright incredible.
Ok... I started taking sketching at the end of January. Other than that I had no training except "O"level art.
Here is my work...
And here is the work of Christian Siriano, the winner of Project Runway
The designer for Agent Provocateur
and Alexander McQueen
Making the choices I have made has been tough. I have busted my ass.
But knowing that I am in the same league as these guys and I am kicking the ass of some of them ( actually the one getting all the media attention and parties and guest spots on TV shows) is bloody PRICELESS.
Look at me grin .
