First draft of a poster I’m working on for Redemption’s visualartistcollective this Easter season. How do you guys feel about the color? I’m a neutral tones girl but I’m open to suggestions.

I don’t usually procrastinate on client work but when I do I make pointless fancy things.
Just printed a bunch of postcards. If you want one via snail mail then message me your address! ✉️😘 (at Firecreek Coffee Company)
A new one.
I just finished reading “Outliers” by Malcolm Gladwell & he makes this point about how it’s not about the talent you’re born with, it’s about the hours you put into that talent. And If you want to develop that craft to its utmost potential, you have to work & invest at least 10,000 hours into it. I think about about 200 hours in. “Practice isn’t the thing you do once you’re good. It’s the thing you do that makes you good.” - Malcolm Gladwell
SO. I’m looking to move away from Flagstaff. Not that I don’t love it but I just don’t see myself thriving creatively. There is no industry for it here. So moving it is. I’m excited about the idea of something new even though it will be hard to leave. ANYWAY. Help. Where to go? I always told myself I wouldn’t go somewhere without a job lined up first. Something in the creative industry is preferable but I’ll bartend, fold clothes, watch yo kids, whatever. If any of you live in a creative city and have a connection to anything and wanna help a sister out please let me know. I’m currently finishing my degree online so I don’t quite have my diploma but I am fond of my portfolio so hopefully thats good for something. All that being said. I’m all ears for suggestions and ideas.
Sorry this is so not professional. But tumblr is my oldest social media community so I trust you guys, and besides, nothing on here is ever very professional.
Note: Some places at the top of my list: Seattle, Brooklyn, Austin, Dallas, Nashville, LA, Denver, Philadelphia, Boston, and Tempe.
PS: Looking to move sometime between June and September.

I kinda feel like my life is just imploding all around me today. I’m sure everything will be okay but I’m so sick of let downs.
