Movin' on

It's been a while since I sent my blog entry so its time to update on a few things. First I must say that I'm officially a full-time freelance cartoonist. I lost my job as a graphic artist at the St. Pete Times a few weeks ago. I had to take a step back from things to deal with the shock of being newly unemployed, which kinda sucks.
The good news is that I've been able to catch up on a few cartoons. The bad news is that I'm now totally reliant on my syndication and freelance money 'till I can find a full-time job, which won't be easy in this sagging economy. The irony of this whole thing is that I draw a cartoon about the workplace. Even more ironic is that the Times is finally running my cartoon Cafe con Leche two weeks after I was let go. Cue Alanis Morrisette song....
Well, since I still have student loans to pay off I have to find a full-time gig. The prospects here in Tampa Bay aren't good, so I guess I'll have to head up to New York and find something up there. Freelancing is easier in a place where there is an abundance of media outlets.
Well, thats it for now.

I wish you the best, 'Los! Here's hoping the closing of one door opens a far better one just ahead.
