I know I'm late to comment, but wow. I send the most positive vibes and hope you find an even better job soon.

Good thing you go to GDC since they have networking and workshops. I live too far away for that.

Oh man, you don't work with SkyVu anymore?
That's really a bummer to hear, I hope you bounce back and succeed!

Last time I went to GDC... man, it's been a long time. Maybe 7 years? Back when I was in college. This year I'm just planning on attending a few local cons in AZ. I might add GDC to the list next year.

it has become invaluable to me - but this will be the first time going without a job at home as a cushion so Im not getting the big fun passes and will hopefully make it worth the flight.

well, the last few times i wasn't really looking for work, i was mostly going to learn and find friends. but i know what you mean. every year that passes i look back and think "how did i think i could land work with THAT portfolio?"

Speaking of which - what do you find is the best method to get freelance artwork? Do you plan on going to any other cons this year?

don't really do cons, and im not not good enough yet at finding work to brag about it - but had a few contacts that helped me find work and posted on some forums.

Thanks! I've been looking at attending some cons... but I'm not sure. GDC seems the most interesting to me, but I didn't realize it's so soon! Too late notice for me :(
