Initially before I made my big move from Houston, Texas to Los Angeles I was somewhat involved with the art scene there, I was a member of Houston Center for Photography and I also participated in the Houston Art Car parade several times which takes place every year. In all the time I've been living here I have gone to a few museum and gallery openings I can see that the art scene in Los Angeles is more established and diverse compared to the art scene in Houston.
Since moving here I haven't had free time to really check out anything local but I have attended a few museums and gallery openings to make up for not being as involved as i want to be in the local scene here. I think me living here has set me back because I really don't know anyone involved in the art scene that can let me know about other art events.
In high school I showcased some of my work in the Houston Museum of Fine Arts for an award ceremony, my districts annual senior art show, and I always show off my work on the web to people who are interested by it. Lately I have been working on my presence I have started several art blogs where my work can be seen .
I've never interned or worked for a design studio but I have applied to many. It would be sweet if I had an internship by now but I just think my inexperience in the industry is setting me back. I really think that's the reason I haven't got any offers from the places I applied to. I don't think anyone would want to hire someone who doesn't know what there doing. I'm just hoping I get a call soon so I can get a glimpsed of the real world.
