I know I already twittered this, but I felt like it deserved some explanation.
Got a call today from a company that I've worked with via Top Cow in the past. They have some upcoming projects and want me to pitch for one. It's a project I really like, but I thought I had missed the boat on being a part of it. If I can turn around a decent story doc, it would appear that I've got the job.
I'm online not five minutes later and see an email from a buddy of mine that works at a major corporate company, or at least one owned by a behemoth. He's moving on... I IM him and find out that he's yet another victim of the economic crunch. It's been hitting everywhere this year. It's getting a lot worse for a lot of people before it (hopefully) gets better.
This recession is economic herpes. Let's hope someone finds a cure.
