I've always been a firm believer in finding any way possible to do the kind creative work you want to be doing. No one is ever going to ask you to do something you've never done before. You have to hire yourself.
After finding the art style I loved to work in, I wanted to start painting murals, but had never done it before so I used my own apartment as a canvas. This was the first time I was ever happy with something I created right after finishing it and got started me on the path I'm on today.
