I've heard success moguls often say you should dress for the job you want, not the one you have. Unfortunately for those of us wearing name tags and hairnets, the uniform isn't really up for debate.
The whole topic of workplace appearance is actually fascinating to me, enough that I may break out a rant some day to really vent out all my thoughts on it. Until then, here's hoping more comics find their way on to the site! It's always a good day when I finish one.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Anyone else reading awesome books out there in Internet land? I've been really enjoying Ready Player One by Ernest Cline - so much that I thought it be fun to put an 80's reference in the comic. First person to find it tweet me the correct answer @ENTweetin and I'll draw an Employees Only avatar for you*.
* Quick legalese - I'll base the winner on the time stamp of the tweet as shown on Twitter (which means I have to be able to see the post on twitter.com, so if your account is set on private add me or set it to public). If for some reason there is a tie I'll try to draw an avatar for each party. I have the right to refuse rewarding anybody for any reason I see fit, so be nice and polite and don't make a request for an avatar that's offensive. Let see, what else? Uh...I make no promises on a delivery time for said avatar drawing, but quite frankly I don't think it'll take that long - I'm guessing sometime in 2013 ;). The reward will only be a PNG formatted 256X256 resolution file that I will design and create as I see fit, so don't bother asking for original artwork or having me draw it with oil paints or something like that. I will DM the winner via Twitter with a URL that they can download the PNG from, and I'll leave it available for download for as long as I want, but probably for at least a month. I retain all copyrights, but if you want to put it on a shirt or something just ask me before you do - otherwise it's just a website avatar for your personal use.
What a pain is this legal stuff, am I right? If I'm honest The Mix is probably going to win this anyway, so I shouldn't worry about this legal stuff 'cause I'll end up drawing his cat.

Last year I was very fortunate to work on comics for an educational software company, and it quickly dawned on me that I needed to do more of that type of work. So, I'm currently trying to develop a business around making comics for businesses, schools, governments...really anyone! I think there's a big opportunity in using comics to convey information, and hopefully as this year goes by I'll have more news on how that's going!

Here's the first illustration to show off - my annual holiday card illustration for OnePoint Patient Care. Click the image to view it in my portfolio.

It's been a very busy fall and winter, but I made sure to create a Christmas card for my clients, friends and family like I always do. If you didn't get a card, here's the illustration for being nice enough to visit EN•blog on Christmas Day (Thanks, but really?). This year's card owes a big thanks to my big brother for helping me nail down the caption; I spent weeks trying to think of a good caption for it and he had it down in five seconds flat! Go figure. :)
Even though I have today off from my other job, I'm still in the thick of things with my freelance work, and I'll be working up to the last minute of 2012 most likely. When 2013 and all her free time comes around, I'm getting the band back together, updating my portfolio, and trying to remember what rest and relaxation is all about. Until then, I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
