Unsure. Artist Alley is now juried and I do not, have never and never will support a completely juried Artist Alley.

So on Tuesday I get fired...for apparently no reason.

And by 'apparently no reason' I mean that they stated "performance issues", but they refused to elaborate on the matter.

I can only assume that this is due entirely to the fact that some questions were asked in regarding to improving skills with MS Office and Windows 7 and the fact that based on what was offered I either felt to be useless in regards to the project itself (that is, it would be beyond the scope of what the work would entail)…

…or was outside of the scope of where I want to develop professionally (I am not interested in desktop support or tech work beyond web design and I do not see a point in advancing further down a path I have no interest in)…

…or that when asked about my education I pretty much spelled out why I am obscenely overqualified for the position (I have been using Windows 7 since it was in beta, using Office since it was Office 97 and trained people during the dark times of transitioning from Office 2003 to Office 2007 and pretty much have 12 years of this under my belt)…

…or all of the above…

In any event, I am not terribly broken up about the whole thing. I mean, I am a bit miffed in that I am uncertain about getting unemployment benefits, but I have enough saved up that I can live off of my GI bill for a (very) short amount of time.

Anyway, the fact of the matter is that I need to make some form of steady income. This is where I tell you that I need commissions. In fact, I have a price list <a href=…> right here. If you have any questions, comments or anything else, let me know. If you want to commission me, just drop me a note.

Commission List:
1) Undisclosed Customer - All 4 turtles from TMNT, Splinter, April and Casey Jones
