New Year, And All That

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

I admit it. I’ve been extremely lazy when it comes to updates on this site lately. It’s been over two months since the last update, in fact. This is one of the things I definitely plan on changing this year. With that said, happy new year, everyone! Personally, I got kind of a bad start on 2011 becuase I’ve been laying in bed with a fever and a massive headache for a few days, but that’s all good now, and I’m ready to get to work.

So what are my plans? Well, first of all i need to get a demo reel together. That is my number on priority. So in order to get that, my plan is to try and get some animation done every day. Even if I can just do an hour or so of work one day, that is progress non the less. Hopefully this will allow me to have a somehwat decent looking demo reel by Feburary. And then I can start sending it out, so that I at least can get my name out there.

I will also try to update this blog a bit more often, with animation that I’m working on etc. I will try to have at least one update every week, but I’m not promising anything. Currently I’m also working on a re-design, to make the site a bit more demo reel-friendly, if you will. It’s moving along slowly. But it’s not that important right now, or a priority.

Other than that I will hopefully be working a bit more than I did last year, because I definitely need the cash. If all goes according to the plan I will be moving out of the house some time this year. That might take a while, but it’s absolutely something I’m hoping for. Been living at home for over 21 years now, and a change would be very much welcome at this point.

New Blog is Finally Up

Friday, March 26th, 2010

After a long and painfull process of designing and coding my new blog I finally think I’m done. A few small tweaks might be needed here and there, but all in all it’s done. There are still some minor things I haven’t implemented yet for various reasons, but they will come eventually. Now this might not be the most original blog design ever, but I think it serves it purpouse good enough.

In addition to the new design I bough a new domain and switched to a different host. Not a huge change but I’m glad I did it Everything seems to be working perfectly.

So now that all this is done I think I’m gonna go and enjoy my weekend and realax a bit before starting my next and final class at Animation Mentor. Really looking forward to that. I was hoping we would get a week extra off before starting again, but I’ll manage somehow.

Oh, and by the way, if you’re trying to view this site using Internet Explorer, don’t. First of all you shouldn’t use IE in the first place, and I don’t really care about making this site work in your messed up browser. So either download Google Chrome or Firefox, or just use an RSS reader.

Please tell me what you think about the new design by adding a comment!

Last Time, I Promise!

Friday, August 7th, 2009

I just couldn’t help myself. You see, I had this one little Photoshop file laying around with and old design idea that I had been playing around with, so I decided to have another look at it, and it ended up with a new design for my blog. But this is the last time I’m doing a new desing. I promise! After a little while I really wasn’t happy with the old white one, but I’ve been using this one for a while with the Theme Test Drive plugin so that only I could see it, just to make sure I would get tired of looking at it.


Animation resources

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009

Learning to animate is a ridiculusly hard and time consuming thing to do (quite painful at times too, trust me), yet as with almost everything else, if you love doing it you’ll keep on going. But no matter what, if you’re going to school to learn animation or if you are doing it on your own, a solid list of good resources and tutorials is always nice to have laying around if you get stuck, or if you are ever unsure of how to do something. And for that reason I have compiled a list of the web sites I tend to visit often. Most of these sites are pretty well know, but a little reminder has never hurt anyone.

Yes, I changed my design, just days after putting up my blog. I really wasn’t happy with the design I had at the beginning. Not quite sure why I didn’t like it, but now it’s gone (well, not really, I still have it, but you know). Anyways, I really didn’t have anything useful to do today, so I figured screw it, let’s see if we can make this better!
