Some notes

I just learned that I can use wordpress with my website so I'm going to convert to that very soon.

I recently downloaded a bunch of brushes and some gradients and patterns for photoshop and I have to say I am impressed. Instantly it looks like I'm a much better designer with much less work. I didn't even know there were noise gradients in photoshop. If you've never heard of them I suggest you check them out, they look really awesome as skys, or random spiral things.

I've been working on a few freelance projects lately as well as seeking a job in the field. I had an interview with Petroglyph games, but they denied me. Their loss right? I'm going to try and contact them and find out why they didn't hire me, but I must keep moving on.

My freelance jobs are going pretty well. I'm designing an advertisement style web page for Duco Tehnologies Inc. and Doing some animation for an Australian guy. oDesk is a really helpful tool.

Not having a job in the field is rather frustrating. It makes me feel like I shouldn't be working on any personal projects, meanwhile all of my work is becoming more and more out dated I'm afraid. And I hate this catch-22 where you cant get a job unless you have experience, and you cant get experience without a job.

Ah well. I have an internship with a magazine right now so I guess that breaks the catch-22.

That's all for now. Just wanted to make an update to show that I update this at least once in a blue moon
