The Return of the Gothtwin!











Yes, I know it's been a while since my last post....I'm still fighting the system, trying my hardest to keep afloat in this maddening society we have in Blighty. It seems that the more I try to work and 'get out there' the more I get shat on! You'll all know of my ongoing battle with a now defunct publisher (and I use the word 'publisher' with bitter, blood in my mouth) well the 'hilarious' news is I was commissioned by another publisher who's done the same thing! He didn't get any finished work but I put a lot of time into his project doing mock ups and the like. The funniest bit is he knew of my bad dealings with the aforementioned company and was actually sympathetic towards me wondering how 'any professional body could treat a freelancer like that?'...then he goes and does it himself! I wouldn't really mind, but he hasn't even had the guts to get in touch with me and explain himself! Another nail in the coffin for this countries publishing industry!
















I've been working on other projects so I' haven't been sat around just crying into my black coffee, heres a job I did for the BBC last year on the Doctors programme which for some reason, I forgot to upload when it was actually on air! DOH!

I'm so sorry to hear this Goth - you really don't deserve it. Breath deep and remember the laws of karma.

What a bummer! You really don't have any luck with publishers at the moment. Fingers crossed your karma is now on the positive end of the spectrum. xo

Good grief Goth! You'll have to remove the 'I love my job so much I would happily do it for free' tagline from your publicity material.

My answer to my current financial situation is to flog everything, that isn't screwed down, on Ebay:)

Sorry to hear that Goth - so many unscrupulous people around these days. Let's hope this is the last time & things will change for the better very soon.

Oh no, that's awful! You'll bounce back with a vengeance, Goth, you're too good to be treated like this.
