Did you every have one of those friendships that you thought would last forever. But as you grew you found that you spent less and less time together and the time you were together you kind of felt that you would rather be someplace else. Meeting for a cup of Joe, trying to think of something to say......... Well that is kind of what my relationship with AEG was like. At one time they were not only my biggest client, comprising most of my work, but, I also had close friendships there. But as time went on the staff changed and for my part, after doing hundreds of ccg illustration I found it more and more difficult summon inspiration and so I put less and less effort into my images. And as other work took precedence and filled my work schedule I took fewer and fewer pieces until at some point I stopped doing any work for them.
I hadn't even really thought about it until today when I got an e-mail from a former employee and I remembered just how important AEG was to my earlier career. I will always be grateful to them for the opportunities they gave me.
I suppose one of these days I should give them a call and see if they would like to get together for a coffee or something--
