Attention students working on cartoon project

If you were involved with working on the speculative project with Mr. Sam Burkett, there are some copyright rules you need to be very much aware of!

The work you created with Mr. Burkett is property of YOU, and not Mr. Burkett. You were under no obligation and received no remuneration for your work. If he approaches you and asks for the work to be turned over to him, it is your decision whether or not to allow him access. Please be aware that you will likely NOT be paid for past and future services.

Since Mr. Burkett refused to sign any kind of professionally-binding contractual agreement on behalf of DeVry University students, he will no longer be allowed to conduct any kind of business on campus.


Attention soon-to-be WGD graduates!

If you are within one semester from graduating with the WGD degree, please contact me immediately.

Again, please send an email to me immediately so we can set up preliminary meetings.
