For the longest time I'd wished I could strike out on my own and make a go of doing illustration, comics, or writing full time... you know, ditch the day job, answer to no one. Well, those prayers were answered Jan 2nd when the company I worked for laid me off. :-P
Our creative team had been struggling with finding work, and after a full year of the 10 of us scraping by, they decided to let 2 of us go. 12 years is a long run at a company these days. It's a good place to work, filled with brilliant, amazing people. I'll miss it... BUT... that just means I get to live my dream right?
So, here I am, all week long trying to figure out what I'm going to do exactly, try the freelance thing, look for another job? Probably both... wife and kids need the health insurance and I'm not sure I can freelance enough to provide. Anyway, I'm writing this more for my own mental health than anything, to those that do read this, thanks for listening, but I'm not looking for pitty or anything, encouraging works are always welcome though.
AND if anyone's interested in a commission, I'm wide open! You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
