::Hey@scotty, yeah the wacom is the new mouse for me, had a bamboo for a few years to test the water before getting this intuos pro model which is very nice, the extra sensitivity is worth it, other then that the bamboo was good too.
Alos digging into psd again, discoverd the airbrush and settings, where have I been : )::
"intuos pro model"
Ooo, get you! :)
I'm going to settle for a Bamboo as I had one at a recent in-house gig and I was amazed at how well it compared to the Intuos.
I only really use them for vectors so the sensitivity doesn't really matter to me and I'll save a few bob and get a bit of desk space back.
Looking forward to seeing what you create mate.

@trex @scotty Thank you for the nice comments guys! :)
@cheli I wanted to focus on one theme and create an icon set, but I just started with the things I like (skateboard, pet, sun etc) and ended up creating miscellaneous icons. It would have stood out more if I focused on one theme, eh?

It is hard for new designers at the moment. Uni's and private schools are pumping out students, and the accessible nature of design software means anyone can be a 'designer'. But like @Scotty says a lot of people give up, and only the determined and persistent prevail.
He needs to read books, blogs and tutorials.
Don't just rely on advertised jobs. Get some face time with a studio by contacting them directly. He may not have experience in design but if he's a bit older than a normal grad then hopefully he can make up a bit of nous with life experience.
Get him to get involved here, post up some of his work and ask for advice/comments/thoughts on his folio.
