For our TDC assignment yesterday, I submitted a photo that represented my past career with the FBI. It always takes me by surprise when I realize how long it has been. Yet it still seems like yesterday. I remembered this poster I designed in an introductory digital art class I took last summer and decided to share it here. The assignment was to design a fictional movie poster that would depict something about your life.
I had to exaggerate the suspense a teeny bit for effect, as you can see. 😉
Working for the FBI was a great learning experience for me; and during the last few years I worked there, I was on a surveillance team with ten other wonderful people. Our team name was “Alpha,” and my handle was Alpha-10. The work was very interesting, indeed, but the bond we formed as a team is what I miss the most.
The below photo was taken a few days ago when I caught up with a former team-mate to have dinner with her. She was on assignment in this area. I hadn’t seen her in 15 years. After our days on the team, she went on to become a Special Agent and I became a mom.
I felt a small pang of envy as I listened to the stories from the path she chose, but I wouldn’t trade my last 20 years for anything in the world. 🙂
