Five main points. If you can do all five of these, you're going to have a great career. Before you can strengthen your career with these concepts to follow, though, there’s something that you need first: talent. You don’t have to be born with talent, but you do have to work hard at developing it. 

#1 - Have a Career Compass.
A lot of people when asked, will say that they have an idea of what their goal is. Maybe they want to work on a game or a movie, but they don’t have it narrowed down any further than that. Be very specific about your goals. What kind of movie do you want to work on? What kind of game? Get into the details. Once you have enough details, then you can use that goal as your ‘career compass’. Whatever moves you make, make sure that you think about your compass, and think if your next move is going to take you closer to your goal. My goal was to work on a Tim Burton movie so every job and painting I did was not based on how much it paid but instead on whether or not it was complementary to something I could see Tim Burton doing in one of his films.

The choices won’t always be crystal clear, but sometimes they are. If you get asked to work on an independent movie, and that’s your goal, then that’s super clear. But it won’t always play out like that. Just make sure that every move you make brings you closer to your goal, and aligns with your compass.

Look out for instances where you get offered a job that is simple but doesn't align with your goals. Some people will think “It won’t take long, so I’ll do it.” Those jobs are the worst! If you don't desperately need the money, don't take it. Those jobs won’t bring you towards your goal, they are merely a sidestep or even a step backwards because the time you waste on projects that don’t align with your career compass is time you could have spent on improving your art or learning something useful to get you closer to your goal.

Hi Bobby Chiu,
You are such an inspiration to me! My drawing skills had rusted for 3 years due to bad career decisions that I had made. I was so rusty to the point that staring at a blank piece of paper intimidated me greatly. I also lost sight of what I was and my potential.  

Your inspiring videos help shape the new artist in me. A year ago I decided to relight my artistic career, I spent my savings and brought myself a drawing table with a light box, books and supplies that I need for my lifetime journey ahead. I decided to relearn the painstaking yet exciting fundamentals which I greatly underestimated back then. I am currently still preparing my portfolio for job employment as an illustrator/graphic designer here in the Philippines.

Looking back from now, I am please that I can draw again and draw better. I will keep on improving :)

Definitely keep up that inspiring spirit Bobby!
To you and to all fellow Imaginism artists out there,

Warmest regards!
High Cheers I am a dummy!
