Hi, I'm Elly / #cactei and I'm a 19-year-old artist from Brisbane, Australia, and I'm super excited to be taking over the School of Doodle Instagram today!✍🏼💋✨
    I am currently in Brisbane studying a Bachelor of Creative Industries, with a major in Interactive and Visual Design, and minors in Journalism and Visual Art.🎓💕 Trying to choose a university course as a creative can be difficult, especially if like me, you'd actually love to work freelance. In addition, you may also be reminded by relatives, friends and others that careers in the creative industries are often thought to be unstable in comparison to jobs in education, medicine, law etc.👩🏽‍💻👩🏼‍💻👩🏿‍💻👩🏻‍💻 Despite others possibly discouraging you from following a creative path, I think it's important to choose the course that will make you happy. 📝🌈🎬✨🎨Because although another course may have higher career prospects, you are less likely to succeed in a course you don't truly enjoy. I am learning a lot from my course that I can apply to my artistic work outside of university, and if I don't succeed in my goal of working as a freelance illustrator/artist, I at least leave university with the required knowledge to work in an industry I am passionate about.📚🖍📒😊
