Icons and Ideas
Category : Technology
I've created these icons for Luca, WebMon, and DNS Enabler respectively :
It's good to get back to using Photoshop and Illustrator after all these years. I got my break as an independent "free-agent" ten years ago by teaching all those long-haired graphic artists Photoshop, QuarkXPress, and Freehand.
I used to sit outside that AppleCentre (Tricom, at Gateway, long dead but fondly remembered) and think, wow, I just made a couple of thousand dollars today. Just by talking. Just like magic.
Nowadays, it's not that easy to get these kind of returns. But that was how I managed to hire my wife, Bee Khim, and then Hai Hwee, and a couple of other people out of the company we all last worked for - with the proceeds from the Photoshop/Freehand training as the seed.
It's to say, if you're ever out of a job, don't panic. It's possible to turn ideas into real income. Just dig deep into yourself and pull them out.
