Welp, after much consideration and research, I have decided to stick to the traditional route. I am not moving to LA anytime soon and that's where most of the concept jobs are. Also realized I just like doing what I do! Any desire to work at Disney is mostly motivated, for me, by the bragging rights of saying I worked there. And from what I understand it is a far cry from what it was in The Day. I just love working in real pencils on real paper, goddammit.
Thanks for the birthday wishes! I got an iPad. Can anyone recommend a fancy photoshop-like app that has a wand tool? Or any other apps that are just neat?
