Why the heck not...following the current trend, here's a list of Jobs I Have Known:

- rat cage cleaner (in my extreme youth, since my dad raised rats for pet stores for many years)
- vet receptionist
- retail cashier zombie
- deli worker (I sliced! I diced! I cut cheese!)
- insurance claim reader (I read 20 page handwritten forms about how their insurance agent misled them. I was allowed to cut multi-million dollar checks, often without QA. Good thing I'm honest...)
--freelance illustrator
- street light hotline worker (I sat and took calls about people's street lights being out. Almost as much fun as it sounds.)
- freelance illustrator
- staff artist for video game company
- freelance illustrator

It took awhile to get the freelance thing to stick, but hopefully the third time's the charm...

Viola! Make sense? Nope, not to me either.

I was a deli worker for a while. It was horrible. I hope never to look back. I also hope that my career chain doesn't take me to the wonderful world of street light hotlines. ;)

you look JUST like my friend Desus. That's weird.

I actually get that a lot.

How do you get INTO freelance illustration in teh first place? I'd really like to get a feel for what it's supposed to be, but I have no idea where to start.

Well, hence the first two unsuccessful attempts!

Hmm...this is really too long for a reply, so maybe I should work up a post about it sometime. Remind me, if I don't get one up in the next few days.

Aww, sweet. Thanks, you rock.

Gah. Next to you guys, I feel like a moron.
