Fresh out of college and ready to go!
Hello world, here I am! Melissa Forde, the very recent Mohawk College Graduate. I may be green, but that just means I have a fresh perspective and an open readiness for the challenges that lie ahead.
Currently I live in Ontario, but in 2 months I will be off to Calgary to start the next phase of my journey! Excited to go, I've decided to make a new blog to showcase my work and ideas. Throughout this blog I will be doing challenges from Illustration Friday as well as my own personal concepts, ideas, and commissions.
I had a blog during my final semester at Mohawk College called First which can still be viewed, but now that school is done, I feel it is imperative for me to continue with my own work, my own ideas, and my own tenacious vivacity! My old blog does include some work which I am personally proud of, but I will not be making new posts on this blog with work from the other. My goal is to be 100% new and original here, nothing from school, nothing I don't love, and only what I am proud to show to the world
So read along if you like, sing along if you think it's fun, but most of all, follow along as I embark on the first steps toward my dream of becoming a concept artist and illustrator. Starting at the bottom, lets see how far I can go :D
