I took a seasonal job over the holidays at Toys R Us. It was a crazy mad house of minimum wage rollercoastering, but it was fun. I met a fellow artist there, and a lot of really nice people.
The downside is I kinda killed off my art time. now I'm working feverishly on a couple huge (and high-paying) web sites. So I'm still trying to draw more, just also learning to multitask.
