I cant give you much advice mate except stay away from Graphic design i.e. designing logos, business cards, stationary etc. ! Im trying to get out of it and into illustration or just selling my artwork in general.
Im in ireland and theres not much illustration work or concept art work so im kinda screwed.
Only persue graphic design if you dont mind long hours, bad pay and stress, but love design.
If you love drawing i think you should head for game industry or illustration.
Whos the dead guy with the salt shaker?
