A very enthusiastic lawyer and "game developer" convinced me to join up with him to do the graphics for what was going to make us rich -- a virtual online community where users walked about a town. I think it really was a great idea, just too ambitious for the existing technology. I worked my little tail off, photographing buildings and drawing detailed tiles and panoramas. I didn't earn a cent. The programmers got scared off and I learned an important lesson: Get as much money as you can up front.
