Re: Box New York

Is she there too! Hello back Jo!

Work out there seems OK.... Only doing another year of retouching then that's it mate!

I am mostly airbrushing now, done a full circle! Just finished this.... Pays more than retouching, and not every knob head in the world is doing it!

Re: Box New York

No I was on the phone she still does a Fridays at Bayeux.

Maybe I should get into that, looks good and if you get more than retouching for it that cant be bad. There are a lot more retouchers around now than when we started but still not that many really good ones, thank god.

Re: Box New York

It seems like Box is still getting a lot of work in this economy. They're hiring.

Re: Box New York

Wow, What an outpouring of ridicule, loathing and rapier wit toward the innocent questions/ideas of an enthusiastic kid. Not to mention any names, "Benny" but although I have a keen sarcastic wit, why so biting my friend?
Maybe this will wrap it up.

Re: Box New York

You'll have to put that quote back into context. It makes absolutely no sense standing alone. And, I'm "biting" because, as I grow older, I have this much (thumb and forefinger 1/4 inch away from each other) tolerance for BS hype in my life. It's an absolute waste of valuable time. Which is, of course, why I wouldn't last a week in the Box milieu.

Why do you think the original poster is an "innocent, enthusiastic kid"? Just askin'.

Re: Box New York

But it's our maturity, growth, life-experience and age that have brought us to that intolerant place.
Me, as I grow older and with my varied life experience I am frickin' intolerant of bad drivers and it seemed the more intolerant I became the more of them got in front of me. Funny thing happened. When I got control of my intolerance they all seemed not to drive in front of me anymore. It's a Kharma thing or self manisftation in our lives.
I am just saying, I hear people say "I don't like kids, or don't wanna be around them."
How can you not see some good in what we once were??
Please take no ill-will from this, if your as experienced as you say, you must remember your early enthusiasm and maybe over-zealousness. Me I am just a little fish in a big pond I guess. Being a big fish kind of sucks after a while so I am back here helping others, picking and choosing my clients, I don't care if they are some well known magazine or person. If I don't wanna shoot it, I'll take a job shooting fishing poles for some good guy who has been making them in his garage for years and is breaking it big now.
I ramble.
Kamaste,
c
