Taking a break from rendering for a bit. Lost my muse again. Started when a kid in town went missing and turned up dead about a half mile away from me. Just all sorts of sadness for him and his family. Only 20 years old coming home from a party and decided to walk as it was only a few hundred yards away from his home... He ended up getting lost in the woods and marshlands of the beginning of the Charles River here in Franklin. They found him more than a week later in some thick brush already deceased. Despite the efforts of all kinds of air and ground support. Being so close to my location, it felt personal despite not knowing him or his family. The cause of death still unknown. This kind of thing sucks all the joy out of you when you know how many folks were affected. Doing meaningless doodles seem so pointless.

Edit: The official cause of death was hypothermia... This kid must have been smashed to get so lost so close to home and to end up the way he did.

  • Watching: Nothing TV sucks
  • Drinking: Starbucks™ French roast as usual...

My former professional life was as an accessory designer. This was a wide-ranging field from automotive to the fashion industry. Also, promotional merchandise for gaming companies. I worked with names such as Harley-Davidson, Coach, Tiffany & Co., Victoria's secret, Ralph Lauren, Guess, Kenneth Cole, Rockstar, etc... This includes all areas of design, manufacturing, and marketing materials.

I've been 3D modeling since the early 90's and of course rendering along with it. I got started using 3D design software such as Alias Studio and eventually SolidWorks. Along the way, I picked up Maya and a plethora of other software apps and platforms. Alias Studio, if you are not aware, is the software used for creating the first installment of Jurassic park. At the time, it came at the cost of 75k a seat, not including the Unix-Irix workstation that priced out for 30k at the time. I occupied 2 seats myself as we couldn't find anyone to use the second. While modeling in one the other would be rendering so this worked out well for me. Granted, 105k for a render slave was a bit much.... But at least it wasn't gathering dust in some closet.

I moved around a couple times to discover new opportunities and was rewarded with that constant desire to slake a creative thirst. A steady decline in health forced me into a premature retirement at the age of 39... By 2004 I was falling asleep at the wheel. I had to stop driving. At this point, I couldn't remember how to use even the simplest of software due to chronic insomnia, fibromyalgia, and suspected narcolepsy. I had a heart attack several years earlier and this was the result of massive amounts of medication and my body's inability to cope with it.

My 3D modeling days were long over... These days I just play around using Poser at one point and now Daz Studio. I keep my brain occupied by doing these 3D scribbles. There are times when I turn on the program and just stare at it not recalling wtf to do or how to use it. I'm basically relearning it every time I use it. What I do, I do for my own amusement. I have no interest in commission work so don't be offended if I ignore requests. I'd rather not provide the advertisement for products. Mostly because I change nearly everything I use to suit my needs. Your actual miles will vary? I've received notes asking about a certain product and on rare occasions, I'll say but I'll then get an irate note complaining to me that the person couldn't get that product to look a certain way... So please, we all shop at the same stores… Have a look? I don’t want to be some vendor’s tech tampon.

I’ve met a lot of decent folks here on DA and unfortunately a few asshats… I’m basically a friendly and good-natured person but I tend to expect a similar treatment (You know… The golden rule?) I’m often found with a WTF! Look on my face when reading some comments. I’m sure some folks mean well but it often doesn’t come across that way…

I recently found myself looking at works by other artists, and I saw a familiar face. It's impressive to get a registered trademark. Congratulations!
