I'm not sure how many of you know this, but I'm a textile designer and department head for a mens and boys underwear company. Yup, that's right: I make undies for a living! And sadly, no, I don't get to see them modeled.
As I was working on yet another presentation board today, and I was going through my archives and was overwhelmed at the amount of work I've produced over the years... that would be nearly 15 years, people!
The bad part is, none of this is something I'd use for my Cicada Studio business (nor, ethically, should I), which is why it became so important that I start doing my own thing a few years back. Without this experience, I doubt I'd be where I am today, so I'm thankful for the opportunity even though it feels as if it has sucked me dry sometimes! Still, when I step back and see some of the better presentations, I can still say, I'm proud.
