The Future of My Job

Before this blog post, I never really questioned where I imagined myself in 5 – 10 years in the future. I honestly do not know where I’ll end up with how things are going with the economy and all that. There’s only really what I really do good at as a means of having a hint what to do in the future.

Classes and Future Job Prospects

Out of all the classes I do the best at, I’d have to say a mix between Video Editing, Photography, Illustration, Photoshop, and Animation. Video editing comes first because I seem to learn how to edit videos quickly. That goes hand in hand with Animation because I also went above and beyond in that with my final project for that (link). Then there’s the issue of AI becoming more prevalent in recent years. These algorithms are very threatening to my career, as both a graphic designer and web designer. Graphic is affected by AI generated art whether it is DALL-E or Illustrator’s new text to vector “feature”. Web is affected by ChatGPT too, easily making text that pleases the SEO lords. Those two especially worry me going down the line, since they’re not being used as tools and more like cheap replacements for designers and artists.

Dream Job

I think that my dream job will most likely be small commissions of a more personal feel. This can be seen in my best work because they happen whenever I’m hyper fixated. These fixations can be applied to the Spiral Knights Stamps, and the Star Trek Poster (link) I made. What I want to do to improve my work for the dream job is learn how to use my Wacom table more effectively. Perhaps get Clip Studio Paint or some other art program and compare between that and Photoshop brushes. In general, whichever job I get in the future, I want it to at least use my college diploma to know that this was worth it.
