May (and April)

So, it looks like I missed posting anything in April.  I guess I didn’t have a lot to say, what with things being shut down and all.

Not much happening in May, either.  I continue to work on upcoming projects, and, predictably, start to find the work tedious and wonder what else I can do.

Oh, well.  Here are some stills from an upcoming project.

It’s a fairly simple thing, no real story, just images, but of course it has to be stubborn and refuse any easy egress.

Anyway, thanks for visiting and we will see you in June!

Leaping out of February

And so, another month gone.  In good news, I’ve started on a new project and have completed tons of artwork towards its fruition.  It doesn’t have a story, really, just a kind of showcase for celestial artwork.  I’m doing this because the opening of the last animation got a very positive response, and also because I have no idea what needs to happen in Chapter Three of “Instruction.”

Oh, I’ve got some ideas for imagery, but in terms of tying it together into something that might, vaguely, be called a “story,” no, that has yet to reveal itself.

I’m sure it will.  One thing I’ve learned is that you can’t force these things–they push back and you end up with regretted garbage.

See you next month, and thanks for stopping by.

September 2019

Well, it’s end of another month.  Got a couple of projects going, both of which I am tired of working on already, but at least one of which should post to YouTube next month.

Here’s a still from one of them.

Aside from that, nothing much else going on.  Starting Monday, we’re supposed to wear uniforms at work.  Oh Joy.

I miss having a cat, but at the moment I can’t afford one.

See you next month and thanks for stopping by.

August 2019

Well, it’s that time.  Still working on the latest project, which is taking more and more time while I’m really starting to doubt if it’s any good.

In other words, most things just seem to be deteriorating.  Bright spots tend to be things like, “Well, I thought my bill would be higher.”

The film group grows more and more disappointing.  On the other hand, the other group is still pretty fun.

See you soon, next month for sure.

April 2019

So, time for the monthly update, and, surprisingly, there are updates.

I’ve been doing some more painting, and some more exploring in sound stuff…and have actually been doing some work on a new animation project, one that just kind of leapt in front of everything (for which I am grateful).

So–nothing much this month, but some possible good stuff in the weeks ahead.

Thanks as always for visiting.

March On

Well, so here we are on Pi Day, and as good a time as any to post.

Not that anything has changed or progressed…in fact, I generally have a dearth of drive these days.  I actually animated a 40-odd-second bit of a project, but have almost completely lost interest in completing it.   And there’s nothing else on the horizon that’s piquing my interest.

Oh well, at least the weather is somewhat better these days.

See you again soon.

Adventures in WiFi

Well, so now it’s 2019, another year gone, another year loaded into the chamber.

To be honest, this year has started out better than last year.  There have been some actual positive occurrences.  So there’s that.

I had completed a new animation, and went to upload it.  That started on Saturday the 19th, around 6:30 PM.  On Monday, the 21st, around 4:30 PM, the upload had progressed to 70 percent.

That’s almost two days, so I decided enough was enough.  Off to Best Buy, to purchase a new cable modem.  (To be fair, it was probably long overdue.  The modem I had was at least twenty years old, and protocols had changed since then.)

It was an expense I didn’t really want, but there it is.  And now that I am re-uploading the file, it looks to be much more reasonable in time-line terms.

Guess that means I should do more animations, so as to justify the cost, and we’ll go with that.

Thank you, as always, for dropping by, and hope to see you soon.

PS:  I started painting again, and so far I’m liking the progress.  Perhaps some images soon.
