I was really taken with the artwork I used in the set by Mike Tracy and so I looked him up and found a really interesting article about him.....check it out here:
http://blogs.ocweekly.com/navelgazing/2012/08/art_institute_of_orange_county_mike_tracy.php

He was eventually fired..here is his response:
" I received the official termination notice via fedex last night. It was there when I got home. Whatever progress I was making toward some sense of normalcy instantly evaporated when I read it. One of the points that Marick makes in his termination is that I have- and I quote_ "...actively sought to use our students to protest on your behalf, disrupting the learning environment for your own pursuit." I can only hope that, as a human being, he doesn't really believe this in his heart of hearts. I also hope that you all can accept my assurance to you that disrupting or causing harm to any of you was the farthest thing from my mind. Far from it, I feel that the policy I was fired for, despite Marick and EDMC proclaiming to the opposite, injures students, at the very least, financially, aside from all of the academic freedom issues.In terms of disrupting the learning environment, the corporation could have easily held their fire for another six weeks and simply, quietly terminated me at the break, thus avoiding a much greater damage and disruption than the one this precipitous action has caused. Now, for you, I think this is finished. I thank everyone for their passion, their support and their encouragement. Go back to your work and resume thinking about your education and your futures. I still sincerely believe that there is a great value in the things you have learned and will learn at the Art Institutes. The dispute that I am involved in is not about that. Please don't allow this situation to confuse your goals or stifle your enthusiasm for our profession. We embarked on the study of entertainment art because we wanted a life for ourselves that has meaning and is fun- and it doesn't matter how or where you do it, all that matters is that you do it!I will continue to work, from my end to get this injurious policy modified. I am also looking forward to the time, hopefully in the not too distant future, where I can resume my life and start getting to the next chapter.Please feel free to call on me any time you think I might be of service to you. With much love and affection,Good luck -- Mike"
