I am a sloth. No seriously the last weeks have been quiet on this blog.
To be honest with you the last months felt like roller coasters. I had a mini job which I quit because of a few reasons which I’m not going to complain about here. I don’t know if it’s because I’m still young which is why I struggle with having a job so much or if it’s a general thing. The mere thought of having a job makes me extremely unhappy and miserable. You’ll probably tell me not to complain about it or something like that which I can understand, but see I was never someone who wanted to do this one thing for the rest of my life. I studied Illustration and Graphic Design which was amazing and to be honest with you this school knew that a lot of us were planning on becoming self-employed. I love making illustration, doing art and also designing — yes! — but also do I love writing poetry or editing videos. For me having a mini job or a part-time job is for the purpose of paying insurances etc. but somehow having a job is tiring me out so much. All I want is to do what I love. Why am I telling you this? Because talking about it made me realize that in my surroundings there were others having similar feelings and maybe you can relate too, also did help me to get to know myself better.
I’ve been running in circles for months now and I still don’t know how to deal with it. So if there’s anyone self-employed or someone who struggled with similar problems out there reading this then you’re welcome to give me some advice or tell me about how you did it.
Actually the lasts months surprised me. I got three storyboards in commission two of
them are for the same person. There was a flyer to do. I had an exhibition with now three upcoming ones. There’s eventually a collaboration coming up and I mean things are slowly building up. But I don’t know what to do about the mini-job or part-time job because it feels so wrong. It’s really depressing.
Do you have any advice on how I could still do it?
Next upload will be more uplifting I swear but right now I’m really stuck. This is it and as I said you’re welcome to give some advice or tell me your story.
Have a great day. And whatever happens enjoy your life. All you can do is learn from up and downs and grow. You’re loved.
Hey. I’m ‘Yuki’ at least that’s what my friends have been calling me like for years now.
I was born in December 1995
I am binational/bilingual (french-german) and grew up in a very small village in the west of Germany.
I’m currently studying Illustration and Graphic Design in Cologne.
I’m a young artist who who obviously loves illustrating.
When it comes to drawing and painting, I love experimenting which basically means that I vary a lot between which tools I used (digital and traditional). My favourites are ink and watercolors though.
Besides illustrating and designing, in my freetime I also like writing, editing videos and cosplaying.
I love reading. I enjoy the silence and beauty of nature a lot.
I also love animals from the bottom of my heart. They are friends who I just can’t eat.
And at last, I love dreaming … a lot.
For now that’s it.

Have a great day. ♥
