ROFLMAO

Made me laugh. Great work, I think its great that people can benifit from the credit crunch. I’m sure the artists are laughing all the way to work.

Is it me or is the credit crunch doing web designed and graphic designes a favor. Ive had numerous business approach me saying times are bad and they need a web site or fresh design to advertise there business and generate more money. Times have never been so good for a freelancer. I hope these artists are in the same boat.

Keey up the good work.

The one by Jessica Hagy is the best. Increase in layoffs is directly proportional to the increase in bloggers.

Grant- I agree with you that the crisis will see more people freelancing. A study of freelancers I saw recently was that most of them make less than they did at their old jobs but they were happier with the new arrangement, and that’s really what matters if they can still pay their bills. However, those were mostly people who chose to become freelancers, a big difference from the people who will know do it because they see no choice.

Gordon- gruesome! And appropriate.

Freelance Cartoonist- time will tell, and I like Jessica’s minimalist style, but so many blogs are created all the time anyway
