My Career Plan

Since spending my time at University I have become more independent in being productive with my own self initiated projects and illustrations. 
I have found my experience of university to be not that of what i expected it to be and at times I've found it extremely challenging however, i've made it to the end and now is the time to seriously think about what i want to do when i step into the big wide world(SHIT!!!)

Although i am not entirely 100% sure what it is i want focus upon there are certain routs i would like to venture on.

Firstly i feel i would benefit from finding a job as a junior graphic designer for me to be able to develop my skills and understand what it's really like to be a graphic designer.
It would also help be to meet people with the same creative interests and therefore helping me to build up more contacts.

My main aim is to be part of a collective of illustrators/illustration agency.
I've discovered since being at uni that i have a greater desire to become an illustrator and not solely a graphic designer be it freelance or the way in which i work and pursue my career as a designer.

Below is a list of collectives i've discovered whilst being at uni all focussing upon illustration and graphic artists.

Now the time when i finish university is coming up i want to spend my time between searching for a career job in developing my illustrative style furthermore, expanding my creative horizons whilst building a name for myself as a designer/illustrator.
I'm also planning to take up screen printing since i plan to take part in a
 day workshop over the summertime. This is another way in which i can build up creative contacts inside knowledge.

Now i just need to get out there and do it!
