3 Years Later

Today, 3 years ago, I started a little project called 1amgeek. It was my little attempt at bringing geek related news (trailers, movies, video games, tv, science, media, etc) together in one place for my friends who sometimes missed info here and there. It was a fun distraction during my early years in grad school. It served as a break from having my head buried in astrophysics all day. A chance to let my geek flag not only fly, but to be able to share it with others.

Lack of new art

So…Photoshop has been crashing on me a lot in the past few weeks which has led me to not be posting anything new lately. Don’t worry, my well hasn’t run dry, it’s just the pulley that brings the water up is on the fritz. Hopefully I’ll have something new to post soon. I’ve got a lot of ideas. One of which is very ambitious and I could never pull off on my own, but I’d still love to try it anyway. We shall see.

Time to start from sketch

I feel like I’ve lost a bit of my artistic mojo so I’m going back to the beginning and doing more sketching and basic stuff to help me get my groove back (just like Stella). This in part explains the lack of new postings in the past month but hopefully that will change soon. Starting with a Link Between Worlds piece to add to The Legends series.

Something wicked this way comes…

Last week I decided that it was time take a break from 1amgeek. The views were down, it was taking a lot of time, and I was doing it all on my own. I’d love to continue blogging about games in movies in some form, but a less time consuming, more opinionated level. So keep your eyes open for a new blog soon.

Anyway, since my break I have found my focus on my PhD research to be much better, and I’ve been sketching ideas for different future art projects anywhere I can find paper. On top of that, I was recently offered an opportunity that I hope will pan out. In the meantime, I’ll just keep creating and I’ll hopefully start posting here more often again.

My Companions

I’ve come to realize why I love Doctor Who so much. At one point in time, I wrote a post for 1amgeek about why I like Doctor Who, but recently I discovered why I love it: the moments when his companions leave.

Not good

I feel like moving into a new space has dulled my creative senses. This needs to be rectified immediately.

Have you ever had a song that reminds you of someone you’ve never met? Whenever I hear this song it reminds me of this girl that I’ve never actually met, but I wish I had the chance to.
