But my profession is actually one where it's completely permitted, if not encouraged, to be different (thank God!). I work in advertising as an art director, and have free reign to look as nuts-o as I want, and no one cares what I do on my own time as long as I continue to do good work. Just about everyone I work with has seen the gasmask movie* I shot last summer, and everyone else has seen my art site. It was in part because of my art site that I got called in for an interview at my current job. So they KNEW what they were getting into when they asked me if I'd like to work there. They'd seen all the guns and skeletons.
I'd be pretty bummed if I couldn't put my art online for fear of losing my job.
Cheers to everyone who bravely posts, in spite of it all.
