I once met a guy in Malibu whose job was literally to vacation places. “Location Scout” for movies was his title. While this seemed like the most ridiculously, impressively amazing dream job, he seemed unhappy with a hint of unfulfillment, didn’t speak highly of how the job affected his personal life, etc. So while I would like to say that my “dream job” would be to browse Reddit and eat pizza all day, maybe it wouldn’t really be so amazing in reality? Maybe I would get fat and become totally socially inept and have jello legs forever. So maybe those fantasy dreams aren’t so fantastic after all. Or maybe I’m just saying that out of pessimism.
My real life dream job, for serious, would have to be one in which I work with storyboard writers, create characters, sculpt toys, illustrate fun gifs, get breaks to ride my bike and come back to continue drawing and painting and illustrating things until forever. I want to publish some children’s books, illustrate beer labels (Ralph Steadman for Flying Dog - total hero), design fun merchandise, work with tv cartoons, et cetera et cetera.
I just want to be creative all day, that’s my dream job. Someone give me this job please!
