Doodle 358 - Cubecraft

Lately I have been working very hard on some work-related projects. I can't quite tell yet if my hard work is paying off, I can only venture to guess I'll find out sometime in the next couple of weeks.

Since I left my full-time job I have kept busy and still bringing in some income, so that's good, but I would like something more steady that brings revenue in on a regular basis.

Hopefully I have played my cards right and I'll get an opportunity like that.

As a designer you have to market yourself and make your work visible and desirable to employers, there are many ways to go about it and it all depends on the kind of company you want to work with.

In my case I try to make sure all my resumes and business cards look great and I leave little things behind after meetings/interviews so the potential client/employer can remember me.

So today I am sharing a silly cubecraft I revamped for such an ocassion, and yes, it is a mini me! I normally personalize it for an specific company/position by changing her clothes, giving her a hat and add a message.

I am also included a quick doodle I made while trying to figure a costume design.
