DAME CATHEDRAL .A friend
had to go to Paris to work and invited me along..
He did the web site for the Cathedral of Notre Dame (Something
that impressed me no end!) and called the place "his office"..
And, when working for Notre Dame, he had free lodging in an apartment
under the shadow of the cathedral.
spent Saturday working on their site.. I,
on the other hand, went to Paris to play..
I toured the cathedral and went to see the Matisse /
Picasso exhibition.. But, in the
afternoon, I got a very interesting call on my mobile..
The rector of the cathedral had said, "I need a cartoonist
for this site..
It has to be someone who can draw cartoons that especially
appeal to children."
said, "I already have the artist you need, and I brought him to Paris
So, I was
soon on my way to meet the rector.. It's
one thing to say you can draw, but I pulled up my website to show
examples of my work.. The rector was
simply blown away by my artwork.. And,
I was hired.. I didn't know exactly
what I'd be doing for them, but right away it was clear that I had
what they wanted.. So, there would
be even more trips to Paris to work at "the office".
