Straight after I finished my course in graphic design at Shillington the 19th I expected myself to fall into a lazy state of mind where all I would do would be to sit on my couch for weeks and eat and watch series. But far from it. I jumped straight to working on another project that I could add to my portfolio and realized soon that I have to abandon my perfectionist tendencies if I ever want to get somewhere with graphic design and feel good about it.
With each project you work on you have to set a limit where you say: "this is just as good as it can get for now". Being confident about what you know and accepting that you still have so much more to learn is difficult to balance, but it is the only way to do it.
Being on my own schedule again is a relief, though. Getting ice cream in the middle of the day for a break, cooking tomato sauce from scratch with Sigurd (picture 4-5) and taking all the time in the world for lazy afternoon walks in Prospect Park (picture 1-2). What a perfect timing with Sigurd's parents coming to the city this weekend!
Oh, and here is my portfolio by the way.
