This is a small selection of some of my all time favorite dream jobs. They have always had artwork published that I feel I could be a part of producing as well. We all have dreams, why not go for them?

Solo and Group Exhibitions later in the future.

• If I had to form a magazine that focused on the likely hood of my survival.....well then I would probably be covering the entertainment industry. This I mean I would be constantly having articles about celebrities, hotspots, films, music. etc. This would encompass the film and music industry because no matter what Americans love escapism and forms of alternate reality. They love to feel as if they are a part of the popular culture. The look and feel of the magazine would not be quite as goddy but would evoke a bit of a mainstream design.
