  • 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 www.joe-stone.co.uk 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.

                  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.

                        Cheers!

                        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.

                            I understand that when you're new to this, it feels like you must take whatever work you can get, and swallow all the crap that comes with it. But it's actually just the opposite. This is a toxic relationship....

                            Also just to address your OP more specifically, Twitter vs a forum.

                            On twitter I can message someone I know and ask for a crit or fresh set of eyes. On a forum I can post that same message,...

                            It's another social media app that allows you to connect with people, in some ways it's easier than others. Its one more way to market yourself, and people have gotten plenty of work off twitter alone....
