Things have been quiet lately. Too many distractions in Utah. I wish I could say they were good but I can't. I moved half way across the country for a job that seemed worth it. 3 weeks later I was put on commission, exactly what I was doing at home but a much lower quality. I didn't come here to do middle of the road shit, not update my blog, be mocked my my boss, and prepare nothing for cool mini or any competitions. I quit blue table a week ago and although I just want to go home I've decided to start something up with the former CEO who was fired and given no reason.
Why u mad bro? You might ask. Well I'm mad because after I quit I was thrown under the bus in front of the other employees. My first project there was to paint an infinity bootleg miniature that would be part of a giveaway when a feature on infinity, that was planned for a later date, was underway. The owner of Btp told the employees I took that from another project, painted it and wrote it on my time sheet without asking. Never mind I was given the piece by the project manager or that I told the owner what it was for and why I painted it during the meeting we bad the day the CEO was fired. I have been accused of stealing from the company but no one told me, I had to hear it second hand. You'd think I'd be accused of stealing if I actually did. I'd like to add the miniature remains at the studio.
So what should I do? Start an honest company that is employer friendly and offers a quick turnaround time as well as a consistent quality? Ok, sure, good idea man. I think I will, the new site launches tomorrow and will be packed with pictures. I'm currently working on our first job when I'm not training other artists. Here are a few in progress shots I've snapped over the last few days :)
More to come, good things in the future. Don't compromise your happiness.
