I am a graphic designer. I am currently disabled due to severe pain issues. I can do a little bit of designing at home, usually in the middle of the night. I need to keep my skills sharp in order to return to work someday, which is my goal. So, as a way to do that and not affect my disability benefits, I do volunteer graphic design for local community organizations. I am currently working on or will soon be working on a Tshirt design for a volunteer fire company, 2 posters for 2 different local non profit theatre groups, and a logo for a good friend's cheesecake business. I don't design every day, and only for short periods of time so I am not too sore from sitting at the computer. Everyone who works with me knows that I will do a good job, for free, but it will take a while, and I can only work as my symptoms allow. So, no tight deadlines or demanding clients. That doesn't seem to be a problem because everyone usually just appreciates the help!
Also, I love to color. It takes me back to the early years of design school, since I work so much on a computer, it's nice to do creative things by hand again. This is the current page I am working on. I love to do really complicated pages like this!
