New Part Time Job

I guess it had to happen one day, I mean saying good by to those cleaning and grape packing jobs. Well,  at least for a while.. :D

This summer I did one simple work for a guy ( The dorje turnaround I wrote before) and he was so pleased with what he got, He spread the word and in the middle of summer I got a call from a sculptor from Rochester asking if I could do some work for her as well.

It turned out she needs an ongoing ..sort of partner or.. just someone who could constantly work with the development of her ideas and its 3d representation . So this is what I'm doing now instead of cleaning - working something more related to the study field.

These are basic representations of the variety of ideas,  some examples of what sort of work I've done so far;









But one thing  really came as a huge surprise to me. Even though I'm not fully prepared or skilled enough for this sort of job (and I did tell that in advance to the sculptor) it was the connection what got me the job.

Of course these past two month was and still acts as a trial period but so far I'm only picking experience and already learned a lot. And I guess we'll see what happens next ..

  12. Looks great Jolanta. I bet its more enjoyable than cleaning, although I'm sure sometimes you are staring at Maya for the 6th hour that day thinking "I'd give anything to be cleaning a dirty toilet right now".. or maybe not.

    Are you seeing Phill Jupitus at Canterbury? Thats what I put down for. It will be the third time I've seen him perform this summer, so I hope he doesn't think Im stalking him.
