June 2019

So, it’s the end of June.  How are things progressing?  Well, the script group is kind of in endless rehash mode, but I’ve got five scripts in various stages, so there’s that.

The editing thing has been abandoned.  I’ve been working too much on my own stuff, which is the ambitious animation.  I’ve got several sequences finished, and will probably be able to post a “part one” in July.  Here’s a shot of an impact crater, cobbled together from a dozen or so different images.

Also, met an interesting person.  Possibly more to say on that later.

As always, thank you for stopping by.

May 2019

Well, I see it’s time for the monthly update.  Well, I’ve got four projects in various stages of completion (none of them really close to that, though).

One is a script for a group, and I’ve kind of soured on it.  Sometimes shorter is worse.

The second is a possible edit for a film for the same group.  Barely started on this, already thinking it’s futile.

Third up is a new painting, which has already stalled.

Finally, we have a new animation that may be too ambitious for me.  Haven’t done much lately on that, but it’s still in place.

So, that’s that.  I hope to update this more regularly, but we’ll have to see.  As always, thanks for stopping by.

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.

February Notes

Greetings, friends and neighbors.  Speaking of the animation that I mentioned last time around, I neglected to provide a link.  Here it is:

Recollection.

It’s about six and a half minutes, which is (for my own YouTube habits) on the edge of being too long.  But there it is.  The title, by the way, is almost a pun.

I’ve continued to paint, with varying results, and am actually making progress learning Maya.

In the interest of crass concerns, I’ve added a PayPal link at the top of the page.  So, if you have a couple of bucks…

The universe contains many fine people; while in the past I had my doubts, those doubts are put to rest.  Not many, and certainly not enough, but they are there.  If you’re reading this, you’re one of them!

I hope to update this more often, but, as we all know, the best-laid plans….

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.
