I waited from 6 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. to specifically sign for the letter of termination. Inside the cardboard FedEx envelope was a single sheet of paper from the Walt Disney Internet Group (they’re still using that name and logo?). In a nutshell, the tiny paragraph simply said that my contract has officially come to an end. So . . . no more approvals for papercrafts!
I can finally start finishing a few papercrafts. The Sleeping Beauty Castle Holiday Pop-Up Card still needs illustrated instructions, but you can expect to see that this holiday season (late Nov./early Dec.). The Disneyland Paris Sleeping Beauty Castle still needs some error corrections before moving onto the instructions. That probably will not be available until sometime early next year (possibly sooner). And finally, I may be able to get around to finishing the Mark VII Monorail model.
In the meantime, several projects are already in progress, and will be occupying my time throughout the month of October. After Halloween, I can get back to work on old projects. The wheels are also turning on future endeavors.
My thanks go to the folks at the Walt Disney Internet Group for wanting to include me in their work. It’s just too bad that the company changes occurred when they did, thwarting any attempt at letting the project get off of the ground.
With that said, it’s time to move forward.
