The End As We Know It

Today I resigned!
How nice.
Now then - just to prove that I'm not always a complete arsehole, I present for you my letter of resignation.

Dear Louise,

It is with sadness but not regret that I resign from WIN.

The sale of my house has obviously been a big change in my life and I’m going to take that change a step further.

I have long regretted letting my illustration career fizzle away and have decided to relocate myself to the UK and see if I can revive it there.

I can’t thank you enough for my time here.

You’ve been a terrific boss and WIN has been very good to me, especially when taking a chance and hiring me in the first place.

Whilst I may not be in the same state (or country for that matter) I will be available via email and would be more than happy to help out my good friend Damon with any technical matters that should arrive, and indeed anything that may be helpful for the team in the north.

I have also made it abundantly clear to Nadia that she can continue to rely on my support and help for as long as she needs it.

As per our conversation only minutes ago, I’ll be with you until May 12th.

Thank you very much once again, and I wish you all the best.

You how fucking nice I can be?
You see?

Oh you are so very nice!


Oscar Grillo said...

I am terribly sorry for Nadia, and the fate of Damon is very disquieting...
Time may heal all the wounds.

Good luck, Elliot!!!! (In bocca al lupo, as they say in Italy)

Elliot said...

Damon has already thrown himself from a bridge and Nadia was already a lost cause.

I am feeling postive and talented and good about things.

Oscar Grillo said...

Just like Alina!!

Smook said...

Best of luck to you in the UK, I hope good fortune awaits you.

Elliot said...

A lost cause or positive and talented?

UM said...

Elliot's coming to the UK. Best of luck, matey! Looking forward to meeting you in person. I hope you will pop by the studio.
See you soon,

I believe good fortune awaits all who follow their true passions. Glad to see you making a step in that direction.
Best wishes.

Like your illustrations and sure you'll make it. Good luck!


Elliot said...

Smooker you devil - bless your cotton sock.

Uli - I think I can manage to make an appearance!

2 Newbies!

Ric - thank you. I note you're in SF where I'll be heading on my way.

Wolfy - thanks for the encouragement. I spent about 13 seconds on your blog and when I read out the sour milk shit I didn't perserve.

Little Rock said...


Well done, you nicey.

Mik said...

Good luck, I'm sure you'll do great in the UK.

We're flying there the 15th of May for a two week visit with the folks.

Are you going to make it down to LA-LA Land when you land on this hemisphere?

A. Riabovitchev said...

Good luck!:O)

Elliot said...

Red - I was hoping to, there are lots of animation people I'd love to catch up with but I'm not sure if I can fit it in.

Andrei - Thank you! If our paths ever cross I'll buy you a beer!

RedDiabla said...

you make me sad. Harrumph.

Elliot said...

Oh you'll manage without me Red : )

Matt J said...

Brave move. Hope you can make it in illustration over, it's incredibly tough to crack & make a living at, that's why we're all doing animation instead!Good luck & see you soon!

Stef said...

You're such a nice boy, I'll ask you to write mine when I'll quit. So, we'll see you soon.
Good luck indeed for your new start in the UK, you know a lot of people here through the blog.

Elliot said...

Hey Matt and Stef - I'm prepared for a hard slog and even a move back to the edit suite if necessary, but I'm confident something useful will happen.
More useful than rotting away here in the wilderness.
