Failed attempt

Living a twenty hour day is tough. It is even harder when you try to balance your loves and family and real work life.
Here is another rejection for the-gutters.

At least I took a shot and they felt I missed. Can't say I fully agree though they are the bosses and it is their script - LOL. Let that be a reminder to never tell your boss they are wrong. - LOL.

I should add that this took a very valuble three hours of my sleep time too. Under normal conditions and if I had more time I could have done more, but damn like most folks I too have to pay bills. Ce La Vie!

Now back to more important matters sleep!

Rejection = hope

I recently have been trying to reconnect with several big hitters and received this nice rejection. I totally forgot that I sent something to Wizards of the Coast. It wasn't until this came to my in box that I clued into yet another avenue of work might be getting wider.

Here was the nice letter....

Hi Richard

Thank you for submitting samples of your work to the art directors at Wizards of the Coast, a subsidiary of Hasbro, Inc.

I receive quality portfolios every day and the number of artists to whom we assign work is limited. If your work is suitable for a particular project, an art director from one of our product lines may contact you regarding a specific assignment.

Due to the number of inquiries received, I regret that I am not able to speak with you personally at this initial portfolio review. Submissions are kept on file for future reference and are reviewed as the need arises.

Thank you for your interest in Wizards of the Coast.
