Yes, sorry I haven't been around a whole lot! Was busy transitioning into a new job that sort of sprung up out of no where and they desperately needed someone.
So I guess the newest update is I'm a 3D Animation teacher
yea, I know! crazy! It's definitely a nice feeling, and has helped me progress into working in 3D more which I needed (if only to do demostrations for the class). I have a good group of students, they are very eager and driven!
For those who don't know a little about me, I have done some studio experience but my primary industry experience has been contract, remote and freelance. I do this because of situations in my life that rose up and I didn't want to move far away from my family (as some of you know). I've been offered a few in house positions in the States, Toronto Canada and Ottawa Canada but turned them down.
I have just a wallop sesspool of knowledge in this head
and I'm testing to see if teaching will help bring it out
Actually, I've always wanted to try teaching and see if it was for me!
It's only a year contract so it's not permanent. In the mean time I'll be switching my lifestyle around a bit and taking out things that are going to distract me.Deviantart
is my home so no, that's not going. And it's one of the things I can do mon-thurs after teaching hours that doesn't make my eyes burn
I'm talking about cosplay.
I love it a lot, but I'm also a bit of a sewing fiend and like to make my own costumes. This is just way to time consuming to do. There's no lesson plans for my course, I have to make them all so I just don't have the time for it. However! It doesn't mean I won't be commissioning other artists to make some cool stuff for me, and wearing/tweaking what I already have for now Crafting/hobby business -
I have a con mother's day weekend, and another one in November and those are the only two I'm doing this year. I'll be creating these off and on but they will not be priority after Mother's day (unless commission orders stem up!).
What I'll mainly be doing is lesson planning/creating but also 3D/2D work. I want to focus on it for awhile and take out all other distracting hobbies. It is my passion, and it was put on hold. That won't be existing any longer!
So after the convention weekend two things will be happening: a new facebook account for my crafting business, and one for my art. There I'll be posting WIP shots too, where as DA will be left for the finished product. Commissions -
If I owe you one, please let me know just to make sure I haven't forgotten. I will be trying to tackle those as some of you have waited long enough.
NOW! back to CV stuff <3 you all!!
