Shell Suit Zombie is the young voice of the creative industries. Its yearly journal offers advice, insight and frank discussion for young people looking to break into publishing, design, illustration and everything in between – and this year the lovely folks who run it asked me to write a piece about breaking into the industry during the financial crash.
Big thanks to the editors for the invite and for allowing me to swear willy-nilly. It was great fun to write and I hope at least someone out their can glean how my generation of creatives broke in amid shrinking pay, job shortages and almost no public funding.
