3... 2.. 1.

Three days left!!!!
I am looking forward to hand delivering my work Friday morning!!!
I am coming down with a cold and my heat went out...
so I threw my arms up in the air... called in sick got
a bottle of wine and I am out in the cold finishing my
sculpture for another photo shoot tonight. It has been
too cold to pull it off after work, and I have a lot
invested in this project.
Reality has also come knocking on my door in the
form of a notification from management that my job has
been discontinued... Of coarse... They are a Danish company
and they want the good design jobs in Denmark.
America the beautiful... Made in Denmark...
Our production jobs are being relocated to China.
I now have about 5 months left with my current
employment. So... when I am finished
with this... I intend to start my own business in
illustration.... I don't care much for looking for
work... I guess that is one thing we do still have to be proud of...
Freedom to speak, think, and create our own opportunity.

Oh! The job thing sucks! I'd like to say, "Oh! It's meant to be! You're supposed to be working on other things!"... but losing a job always sucks even if somewhere down the line it's for the better.

America the beautiful made elsewhere indeed.

I think you need to make a poster with that sentiment.
