Default Re: HOW TO GET AN APPRENTICESHIP... (PLEASE STICKY THIS!)

Conor - what a great read!

Thanks for putting this information together and sharing it freely. I'm just at the very early beginnings of pursuing an apprenticeship locally. I've looked at several shops in the area. I've introduced myself, met the artists and reviewed portfolios. I've found one that I'm asking (pending response because its a huge responsibility and I'm sure there are many things involved from a shop and legal/liability perspective that needs to be thought out as well) and really respect his work. We are very much alike artistically and I've gotten several tattoos from him already. There is synergy there, as you mentioned in your post. I'm really hoping it works out with this person and if not, I can respect that as well. I'll continue looking.

Sample of my artwork (pen). I love the fact too that you emphasize 'drawing' drawing drawing.
