The year is certainly flying by. May 2014 is already almost finished.
June is going to be even more awesome! So many events & new projects to look forward to. Let's recap some work & thoughts for the past month. Here is some of the stuff I've been working on:
Marketing work for local fundraising company for races
Rainbow Factory Storyboards (Can't post any details on this yet)
Writing articles (For my blog & some side work)
Volunteer work (Such as the Science Museum- FOR SCIENCE)
Animation Tutoring (all the wonders of Adobe!)
Birthday Party Entertainment- Balloons anyone?? :D
Spooloo- Another secret project... with Animation!
Freelance work is lots of fun and, of course, lots of work. There's always something new & exciting to do. I love it because it gives a variety of opportunities to sharpen my skills & overcome new challenges. It provides great networking opportunity while enhancing a career. It comes with lots of stress & pressure as well, but that's part of the fun.
I get asked lots of questions regarding my work. I try to keep the answer simple, but the work itself is not simple. The answer is really something new everyday. One minute I could be writing articles, the next I'm making proposals for some work which include Graphic Design and/or animation. Another day, I could be an extra on set, or facepainting at a big event. All of the work ties into the career of Entertainment & Education, Science & Art.
To make things a little bit clearer for everyone (including myself), I've decided I will branch off into the categories of my work. For instance, this page & all of my other sites (including my channel) will be my personal pages- blogs, thoughts, work updates, the usual. Soon I will also have a separate Animation Studio, and an Event Planning/Party Entertainment Company. Both involve my passions & could involve lots of big things for the future. There's also something else. Anyone remember WorldOCrazy? It's coming back. (That's a totally different thing but part of the branches as mentioned earlier)
If you've read my blog(s) before, you know that change is an inevitable thing that happens on these sites. One minute all blogs are on Blogspot, the next they're back here. It's just part of the learning/growing process. Writing them all out helps to look back & see how far everything has come.
In other news. Let's see, Skydiving for Operation Zombie Drop will be coming up in June, so expect some fun updates on that. Tybee Island Vacation coming up, there may be a blog post about the adventures out that way. Dragon Con will soon be upon us. Roller Coaster Season has started. There's just so much! Check out this drawing of a roller coaster:
Pretty simple & standard, just drawn in Flash as a Vector. For a Tshirt with a Green Background. Will post pics on how the shirt looks. This is for CHOA.
I started watching "How I Met Your Mother" not even a month ago and already I'm hooked. It started off simple enough. I was working from home & felt like I needed some background noise. Usually I put on a movie. This time, I just thought "eh, why not" and played the show, thinking I'd barely pay attention. Somehow with every episode I would hear a joke and chuckle, which turned into laughing, which turned into liking the characters... and now I just love the show. How did this happen? Perhaps like any show. Good writing, compelling characters, funny situations. It reminded me of "Friends" or "Scrubs" - seriously funny. Anyway, that made me want to draw this:
A Teddy Bear, A Robin, A Barnacle, A Lilypad, and a Marshmallow.
A fun group I must say so myself. There's lots of parodies I want to make from this show, lots of crossovers. *rubs hands together* mwahahahahaha
Seeing Neil Patrick Harris in this show also reminded me of a certain Musical- Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog. I had watched it once about a year ago and thought it was neat, but never got around to watching it again. Well, I ended up watching again... and again and again. Wow! Little Shop of Horrors is my favorite musical, but this one jumped up to my top 5 for sure. The explanation on its awesomeness has to be a blog post in itself. It's got everything and is quite hilarious. Comedy + Music = AWESOME (Team America: World Police- another favorite)
So that's pretty much it (for now) the last update for May. I'll be going out of town for some travel, vacation, adventuring & family time. So upon my return there will be new stories to tell, new work to show, new ways to inspire! Have a great week everyone.
PS- Tomorrow is Vincent Price's Birthday, so don't forget to show some Vinnie love.
Enjoy the Chaos & Stay Tooned!
