So, it's 2:15 AM and I just woke up from a nap and I thought I'd check on my old favorite website and see how everything was going. I'm honestly not even sure where to start with this update, so I'm just gonna go stream-of-consciousness style and see where that takes me!
First off, I want to apologize for all of the deviants that I've been watching that have been diligently commenting on my uploads. I've read your comments and you don't know how much I appreciate the time you've taken to give me such gracious feedback! I don't have time to reply to everything, but just know that your words haven't fallen on deaf ears!
And tangentially, I also need to apologize for being a lazy bum and not uploading anything new in many months. Part of that is because I've just been busy with other things and have some serious organization problems, so I can never find the photos that are actually good. Another part of it, however, is that I've just fallen out of photography in the last year
It's sad to say it, but I've just been seriously lacking inspiration and I haven't had many opportunities to take my camera out and do anything cool with it.
That said, I've found a lot of other creative outlets aside from photography. Most importantly, I've been teaching myself piano for about 15 months now and I think I'm getting pretty good at improvisation
Here's an example of what I'd consider my current best recording: tindeck.com/listen/cvfb
I've also been doing a lot of Photoshopping and graphic design. For those of you who visit OCRemix.org, you might recognize an example of my work if you downloaded their latest DKC2 remix album, Serious Monkey Business (dkc2.ocremix.org/
) I was in charge of the back cover art, which I think turned out great. Here's the final product: i.imgur.com/hr5jv.jpg
Here's a Facebook album with all of my other Photoshop works that I don't particularly feel like uploading to dA (trying to keep the gallery solely full of photography) but want to share nonetheless: www.facebook.com/album.php?aid…
So, what else... I graduated high school and got accepted to Arizona State University with a full-ride scholarship, I'm attending my first semester this coming fall. I've been spending a lot of time with the OCRemix community, doing moderation and directing my own remix project for Donkey Kong Country 3 (ocremix.org/forums/showthread.…
) and generally meeting a lot of amazing people in all areas of life
I'm very content with where I'm at in life, and hopefully that only continues on in the coming months!
Hope all of you who are still alive on DA dA are doing just as well, drop me a line in the comments and let me know how you've been doing!!
