Interests

Freelance, Moving and new toys

It’s been a crazy month, I've moved out of the city and back to the Scarborough seaside. I needed to see some crashing waves and trees rather than office blocks.   Until this point I was working full-time at Pixel Bomb Games and then taking on freelance work on the side. Slowly working towards building a big enough client base to go it alone.  This has been the first week of being solely a freelancer. It’s very early days but so far I'm feeling good.  I've made enough to pay the rent and I've also managed to do some personal work.

I also finally bought a Cintiq 24hd. Very exciting. I have been saving for this for a couple of years but never had room in any of the flats I have lived in.

The final push to get one came last month when I was invited down to the Disney Studio in Brighton to meet the team and have a look around. They were using Cintiq’s and couldn't say a bad word about them. Before then I hadn't ever got my hands on one.

I would recommend getting one just for the unboxing experience I don’t know what I was expecting but it was like an epic puzzle from Tombraider getting it out.

Another awesome thing about freelancing is that I've made myself a schedule and it actually stops. For the past two years I've got up gone to work, come home from work and carried on working till I went to sleep. I can actually now do other things. I won’t lie though; these other things will still be mostly be art related. But being by the sea I can get back into surfing too.

One thing I love about being a freelance concept artist is that one day I'm designing Tattoos for a single client and the next I'm working for the US Navy. (Americans have no fear; they haven’t asked me for ship designs, YET.) But it is extremely exciting work. Some of my recent private work in progress commissions you can see below.

As I am now freelance, Feel free to get in touch with any work enquires megan.owenson@gmail.com

Lastsiren, let me tell you a story.

I was strolling through the internet one day and I decided (in the spur of the moment) to look up owls. Owls are a big symbolic thing in my family and I've been thinking for a long time to get a tattoo of one. Anyway, none of the designs really intrigued me, and they all seemed rather dull. So, I thought I'd kick it up a notch and add my love for mechanics into the image search.

Out of the blue, I see this owl. This beautifully, tragic owl, half-animal and half machine, so detailed, yet so filled with emotion, I couldn't look away. I showed it to all of my friends. They were dumbfounded. I showed it to my parents. My mother (who is also an artist) smiled like I'd never seen before. And everyone said, If I was ever to get a tattoo of anything in my life, I should get this.

TL;DR - Meg, you are an inspiration and I love everything you've done, even if I've only found you recently. Keep up the amazing work.

P.S. I wouldn't use the design without your go-ahead of course :P

Your artwork is amazing and exquisite. I'm considering joining SOCIETY6. Could you tell me how one obtains a copyright? What does it cost? I tried asking SOCIETY6 but they were no help at all. Thank you for your kind attention. I AM SHADOWBEAR

Hello ShadowBear, sorry this reply took a while, ive just moved and have been without internet. To answer you question, you don't need to buy or obtain copyright for work you create yourself. So long as the work is original; as soon as you start creating ,it becomes your own. Publicizing on the internet or selling does not alter the copyright, the work is still your own.
 
hope this helps

Meg
