If this pulled through, I would totally relocate to the Philly area to join up. I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but trying to work from home just saps my will to live. I get too easily distracted, and in the end nothing gets done (for over a year, at that o_O).This actually brings up a big question I've been wanting to put out there. We might have a fair amount of spare room in the office, that is, more space than we can afford to fill with employees. So if there are creative people who work from home and want to get into an energizing office environment, I think this would be the place. You wouldn't be paid, but you wouldn't be obligated to NG, either. The question would be what you can bring to the table in exchange for space in the office - such as doing free work for NG in your spare time. Does that sort of thing sound fun? :)
It sounds like lots of fun! However it does bring up a counter-point, which is, how in the hell do I sustain myself financially in the meantime? Someday, I would love to be able to just make cartoons and be profitable at it, but right now that's just not happening. So, simply put, I'd have to find a way to produce a huge amount of disposable income in order to stay afloat.
In the end it's a huge catch 22 that basically requires me to stay here until I achieve that goal of making self-sustaining cartoons.II think most people would probably have the same problem. Or maybe I'm just whining a lot. :)
In any event, it does sound like a pretty good concept. Of course you could always just hire my ass, I have an art degree you know :P heh.
