I still take it though, not being one to turn down work. Because of this, if there\'s one thing that I can say about myself, it\'s that I\'m versatile.
I have years of experience of working in manufacturing, especially electronic and mechanical assembly, plus a healthy dose of sales work thrown in. I have no aversion to doing more of this, but as a naturally creative person, there are two main areas I\'d really like to do more work in.
My main skill lies in illustration, particularly in caricatures and pen and ink drawings from photographs. Pet portraits in pen and ink have proved popular, if sporadic over the years. I am currently illustrating for a friend\'s t-shirt printing company and would very much like to take this skill further.
I am also able to offer interesting product reviews and articles. I have a unique way of looking at the world that comes across in my writing, while still offering a balanced and informative opinion. I\'ve written a number of reviews for on-line motorcycle forums, all of which have generated positive feedback from readers.
