  • Hello All

    Hey everybody.

    My name is Joe, and I'm a full-time freelance graphic designer and illustrator working in the UK. My portfolio website is if you're interested in seeing the sort of stuff I do.

    I signed up because working as a freelancer means lots of working from home and not having anyone to talk about design with! I'd also love to help offer advice on others peoples work and get some feedback on mine.

    Looking forward to interacting with you all.

                It is. He seemed a worthy choice. You a fan?

                  Oh yes, I worked in a comic book shop for 4 and a half years before going full time freelance so I spent most of my days reading pretty much everything that got released. I'm a bit out of the loop with X-Men stuff these days though, leaning more towards indie comics lately.

                    Very cool. Maybe I should get a job at a shop. Haven't read much of anything at all lately.

                        Microswede, working in a comic book shop was cool and good fun for a while, but it did become just another repetitive job reasonably quickly. I'd much rather stick with the graphic design stuff.

                            Thanks for the advice PrintDriver! I just spoke with a friend whose prints I was raving about and he said that it came from an Artisan 1430 as well.

                            Yeah the lights were always going to be a problem. Nah I'm not the installer, nothing seemed to phase them! The company we use are brilliant, I've dealt with them for years with exhibition stuff.
