Happy New Year

Tue, Jan 1st, 2008 - 18:48
It has been just over a year since I last posted.

I had been feeling stagnant for a long time and was not happy with the direction that my work was going in. I was working a lot on commercial projects and felt that I was losing my direction in my personal work. I was relying on the same old bag of tricks and visual conventions and started to feel like my work no longer reflected who I was or what I really found interesting.

So… I took a year off. I stopped posting on Presstube. I stopped speaking in public. I stopped doing the commercial projects that usually pay my bills. Instead I went on an adventure to learn new things and try to forge new connections between my imagination and my toolkit. Most of this translated into trying to learn how to be a better programmer.

As of today, I am back to posting drawings, talking shit, and hopefully releasing some of the experiments and projects that I have been working on all this time.

Happy New Year!
