YOU GUYS. This has been the best week for me professionally in a LONG time, if not the last two years!! I feel like my life restarted and makes sense because this time two years ago, I started working at the Tremont Tearoom. Which IRONICALLY is closing for two months as they relocate, next week.
First, on Tuesday, I went into Pembroke, Ma for an interview for a social media and graphic design position at an antique and vintage shop and he hired me by the end of the interview! The shop is owned by an artist who wants to work on his artwork more often, so he’s expanding his staff. He is a sweet man, and psychically I haven’t been able to pick anything up on him yet. So he’ll be interesting to get to know. He did say he’s been through a lot, so I’m sure it’s just his walls that he’s built up. But this position can turn into a lucrative position for me, if I play my cards right. He wants me to work on the website and maybe make a brand identity for him, etc.
Art wise, I got accepted into two publications – “Bluebells” Gulfstream Literary Magazine which is online is based in Florida and and “Goldenrod #2” (new piece) Spirits Volume 28 that is another printed publication. Exhibition wise, “Pine Needles” was accepted into a show in Framingham, Ma called Visual Alchemy. ALSO, the press release for the New York show will be released officially tomorrow. The show I’m really excited and honored to be in as it is about making and taking photographs!
ALSO – Wednesday, I got on the phone and spoke with a client based in NYC doing design work for an online magazine. It looks pretty cool and he was attracted to my work done with Jetsetter Gypsy – haha – for the style, luxury and travel part. I really enjoyed speaking with him on Wednesday and we speak again tomorrow. I might even stop by his office when I’m in NYC next month for the exhibition.
I have another client coming through tomorrow morning. I’m not sure where this is headed… it’s off to a good start, but we’ll see after the interview tomorrow!
I feel so RELIEVED to have some work finally coming to me. Although, I do admit that working at Hafta Havit has made me really miss minuteman. It’s given me intense nostalgia and yearning to see Michael and his staff again.
