Designing 2011

My apologies for the lack of posting these days, my only excuse is that I’m busy fighting the urge to hibernate during these winter months.

hi·ber·nate-To pass the winter in a dormant or torpid state, which in my case means wanting to curl up with the electric blanket and await the arrival of May. Sounds good to me, wake me up when the grass needs to be mowed.

The reality of the situation is that we have about 290 days until Halloween so logic would suggest that I unplug the electric blanket and get my a$$ in gear.

Make it so!

The past couple months have been a case of having too many ideas. It’s great to spend time dreaming up ideas but at some point you really need to act on the ideas. The weeks prior to Christmas I spent sketching new concepts and formulating a solid game plan, the emphasis was on new directions and designs. I consulted a lot of different sources for inspiration and came up with some new ideas that I feel warrant being built.

This year will also see me embracing technology a bit more; you will see some detailed video tutorials in the coming months. Currently I’m refreshing my skills with some software, essentially getting my skill set up to speed so that I can re-enter the job market in the television arena.

More on that later.

The goal for 2011 is to create some memorable new characters, introduce animation to my Halloween display and incorporate a degree of technological testosterone to my online presence.

Wish me luck as I go unplug the electric blanket, put on a sweater and get to work.

Animation - cool! Five or six years ago I used the Yorick digital puppet in a grade school haunted house. Looks like it was updated a couple years ago...anyhow, may be inspirational: http://homepage.mac.com/nephilim/imagineerieing/yorick.html
