Working Holiday In London

Landing a creative job in London has always been tough, but it's even harder when:

1) You don't live in the UK
2) Your Working Holiday Visa only lets you work part-time
3) English isn't your first language
4) You live with a horny and verbally abusive landlord

But despite all those things, art director Gwen Yip managed to score a freelance gig at Wieden & Kennedy, London. She kept an illustrated diary of her experience and it's crazy funny. Gwen likes to draw people she meets, including BBH legend John Hegarty.
