Do you see what I see?

Okay, so I heard down the grapevine that my welsh uncle, Tim, knows someone in advertising. Turns out this 'someone' is Creative Director at Fox Kalomaski, an agency down in London with clients including M&S and Thompson Holidays. My uncle called in a favour and asked if this fellow, Steve, would take a look at my CV. He agreed, so I sent him it accompanied by a covering letter and this:
It's an ad I made for myself as part of the Watford creative test. This was the only piece of writing I sent - since I don't have a portfolio yet - but the good news is it was good enough! My uncle also buttered him up a bit and got some drinks down him, but I'd like to think it was my ad that did the trick. So, it's probable that I'll be able to go do a 2 week internship there during October. My friend Phil has said that he'll let me sleep on his floor, since he is down south studying fine art at Goldsmiths. I just hope that if I have a job by then, they'll give me the 2 weeks off.

Joblessness is getting me down a bit, but I've got a sandwich ready for me here, so it's not so bad. Stay tuned.
