IF3Y-14 - Hierarchy

this topic is unispiring.
at my job I'm at the bottom of the food chain. i'm the one that comes in the office first in the morning and leave last, if I don't turn the lights on, nobody does. I take the garbage out, change the light bulbs. not that it is my job, just that I though it would be natural, but in the end, the others just take advantage of my commitment.
I work in an environment where ignorance and self indulgence are promoted. nowadays the trend is to go "I have NO idea, don't worry and just ask xtian, he'll find something, sorry, have to go out early, kids you know... bye **SLAM!**"
In this context, as a professionnal, I did a series of outside jobs lately, I thought I'd share... mostly photoshops editing.

I also did the colors of the last 15 pages of the book published by my friend Robert paquet.
none of these really paid, but it was an exchange of services, will help to produce more work, develop new markets and maybe come out to something. I had to go into the mourning of my carreer as a comic creator lately anyway. wrong place wrong time. and most of my time is spent finding a new home for my old mom who sold her house a few days ago or learning web softwares if I ever need to find another job.
eh... life.

  1. yeah, working is so overrated, except for the $$ part. Even though we may sometime suffer for our good deeds, it really isn't in our nature to go to the dark side.

    hang in there!

  2. Well, for sometone who sounds so fed up right now, I think your IF worked out extremely well - uninspired or not! I love the illustration technique - really fun and funky and the background works great. So keep faith (and maybe look for a new job?)

  3. The outside jobs are very impressive. Here's hoping things start looking up for you/us.

  4. thank you for your kind comments.
    really, I love my job and i'm very fortunate to be able to make a living out of my pencils and brushes.
    it's just the conditions in wish I have to do that work that are a constant discouragment.


Adios Illo Friday
