I'm going to transfer all your suggestions in a digital journal. I will try and actually do some of the things you mentioned here. I may join that eons group you manage. I'll sieze the day. Thank you for all your advice!

at eons.com yes on-line, but the hundred participants are more than willing to share.

walk to 633 Main Street and find Rollstone Studios. Their goal is to operate as a retail outlet and gallery where artists can consign and exhibit their work.

Central Massachusetts, 45 minutes from bean town. I live in Fitchburg, and have been my whole life- born and raised.

The website designing skills will haunt me... I need to know how to do that.

Carpe diem Deano. Get out of the house, and bring your sketch pad. Many's the time restaurant owners saw me sketching people for practice and traded my meal for those sketches.

5. and bottom line... Deano, we all think we've sunk to the bottom at some point in life. Trust me, it's a matter of perspective. At my age, just waking up gives me an opportunity to better myself.

People say to get exposure. I might have to work for nothing somewhere as an intern or donate like you did. No one wants to pay for art unless they know it will "sell their product."

Hey Robert, could you give me any insight about how to break into the industry with my minimal bg?

... you are so fortunate to have learned what it took me a decade or more to figure out by trial and error...

I never once had parents who would let me do whatever i wanted to do. They've been controlling, and have said I've made the wrong decision getting into art. I don't have my own car, and I'm almost stuck at my house each and every day.

3. After Vietnam, I refused the GI Bill and got loans for college which took many years to repay. 4. I have never once taken an art lesson or attended a class on art.

1. Deano, you still can afford internet (or are using the public library's). 2. I wasn't born with a silver spoon in my mouth, my folks were considered very poor.

everything's my fault you could say, but finding a steady position somewhere at a design firm seems impossible at the moment, especially for ambitious young designers such as myself.

There are no best graphic designs; only more effective and less effective.

Robert, no offense, I'm just being ignorant. I like that you have much experience that you've been willing to share, but you don't know how hard it is the way I'm living NOW.
