I got the call last night that the Eagle has acquired themselves a new Promotions manager that may or may not be able to update their website and create posters. I was finally (again, for the third time) cut loose from the bar.
I could see this coming a mile away.
Upset? No. I wish he had told me about it sooner, what with Disney coming up and all. But that’s par for course when it comes to the Eagle. They have a history of poor communication when it comes to staff. Ask andrew (if he still reads here…). When I had left three messages last week to see if there was any work to be done, as May came looming over the horizon, I sensed my time with them was up. It has been 10 solid years of on-again, off-again artistic employment.
That, my friend, is a lot of posters. I estimate somewhere over 1100. Not to mention folded calendars, magazine ads and other promotional items.
I have most of these posters on disk. My dream (which may become a reality if I can find a sponsor) is to hold a show of the best 50 or so posters, printed and mounted nicely and all proceeds go to Toronto PWA. After I come back from Disney, I will be approaching some people about this…
