    Two weeks ago I was offered a job as a game artist at Glu Mobile, the company that made the TF G1 mobile game. I was tired of working as a freelance illustrator (getting robbed by clients like Fleer, Hasbro, 3H, so on) so I've accepted their offer.

    It's been a week at the new job, too early to say anything but it feels awesome. Wish me luck :D

    Congrats, I wouldn't mind finding some stable gig for a while myself, Freelancing is brutal.

    Tell me about it, I worked an average of 10 hours the past week :D  But it's much better than working overnight like I used to.

    Awesome, it's hard to find work these day's. And if you really enjoy it, it's not really work! LOL! Now the trick is keeping the job.

    Congrats and good luck at your new job! You've basically got a job that many people have dreamed about it, and I'm sure you would do a fabulous job!
    I will be looking forward to playing games that you helped make on my iPod (once Glu ports them).

    good luck! sorry to hear you getting burned by those other guys. working in the creative field i hope you'll learn to stop playing the nice guy. always remember even if you like the work and would do something for free for the love of it, doesnt mean you should. i think ur stuff is great and u deserve better.
