This was my inspiration and my demon for years!. It was a HUGE poster that lasted through my first agency gigs. Taunting me.
I am mostly self taught in my trade. My BA work was centered mostly in copywriting, photography and English. But I found work in graphic production and design. I liked it and learned fast by looking, asking questions, diving in. All the while Pierrot grimaced at me, enjoying the pain as much as the wins.
If I had him back again I wonder if he might drive me on as before. Probably.
I’ve discovered a perverse competitiveness in me. And while I’ve learned to trust my instincts and move along, I always know it could be done better.
