This illustration was inspired by my recent experience of working in the “real world”. It was a Patek Philippe drawing I did several years ago which wasn’t used in a project, therefore, I decided to update the watch face with money bills in the middle. It consists of the watch being in the middle referenced from a 5711 Nautilus and a very simple S silhouette surrounding the watch like a dollar sign if you look closer.

Throughout my teenage years, studying from secondary school all the way up to college, I did not need to worry about money at all. I was fortunate to have parents who would financially support me for items, food and other things I couldn’t afford due to my hectic studying schedule. This enabled me to solely focus on my studies without the distractions of having to work part time to make money. However, when I turned 19 and officially got my creative computing diploma from college, I chose to enter the working life straight away, with no intentions of going to university. The university teaching curriculum didn’t appeal to me, hence I opted for an working route to build my skills and CV within the creative industry.

My first few months were a massive learning curve – I had to transition from studying with different rotas daily to a solid 9-5 every Monday to Friday, but I was committed to building up my resume now rather than later after graduating from university. After receiving my first paycheck from work, which wasn’t great due to my age and lack of experience, I began paying attention to how I could earn money more effectively and efficiently within the certain hours I would be working. Seeing a monthly payslip made me realise how important every working hour is – I realised I could be more effective.

With this illustration, I wanted to reflect upon my own experience and views between time and money. From 19 to 24 years old (my current age) I worked for several companies, clients and personal projects where money was constantly changing. This also made me appreciate the value of money , as I noticed how hard it was to work several hours for X amount of money. The design of this illustration is very striking however the meaning behind this piece is how I view most of my work.
