I need HELP!!! :: Seeking my next creative inter

Oh my gosh I’m gonna be needing some major help!! Just look at this place. I’m still not sure where everything is. I’ve just been making do, cause I’ve been THAT busy!! …AND my intern Denyss just wrapped up. I’m already missing her. :) Here’s what she has to say about her experience:

DF: Hola! I am a BayArea native and a graphic designer. I was given the pleasure to intern for the lovely and talented Cindy Ann. My experience for the past 6 months with her has been amazing. It has really opened up my eyes to a lot of wonderful things and people. It gave me confidence in myself and work. Cindy Ann provided me with so much inspiration, more than she will ever know. Thank you Cindy Ann for allowing me in your home, your space and for the opportunity. Until we meet again.

Love Always,

Here’s where you can find Denyss ::

So as I say good-bye to Denyss I am looking forward to taking on my next creative apprentice.

I’m looking for someone who can help me organize my studio, process images, do some blogging and create layouts and assist with some administrative and arty production things. If you are friendly, organized and not afraid to take initiative, offer up any ideas or two, have mad photoshop & illustrator skills, and know your way around social media networks let’s chat.

Some of the things you will do will be:

Tradeshow Prep- Printing, creating and organizing show binders, portfolios and display materials. Filling out forms. Organizing, and packing.

Digital - Scanning and cleaning images for art. Formatting, posting and uploading files to my website and blog. Creating mechanicals and reformatting artwork. Updating online portfolios & doing layouts for promotional materials.

Administrative Prep- Putting together sample packs, compiling list of press contacts, follow-up, updating and maintaining mailing lists (include researching), sending e-mails.

This is a volunteer position, so I really want to find someone that will benefit from the experience. I would love to feed you, help you get school credit, and teach you all that I can about illustration and the art licensing industry. Scheduling can be flexible and you can work from home for some of your hours. My home studio is located in Oakland Hills and I am looking for at least a 6 month commitment.

If this sort of thing might interest you email me at cindyann@blupenny.com  and tell me a little about yourself and include links to your resume, blog, website, shop, twitter, or anything else you’d like to share. And answer the following questions: Name your top 3 favorite artist or illustrators. Why are you interested in this position and what you hope to gain from the experience. I’ll email you from there. :-)

And of course, if you know anyone in the SF Bay Area that you think might be interested please feel free to pass this along.

I’m looking forward to hearing from you!!
