It's almost been 2 years guys. I can assume that anyone that doesn't know me has ong forgotten me... It's OK. I'm back with new adventures. I moved to Vancouver last April and I haven't looked back. This is where I belong. Really. As much as I don't believe in fatalistic generalisms as such; this is the closest to feeling that I belong somewhere. There is a lot more personal stuff there that I tend to want to skip over. I have a more anonymous outlet for tat stuff. For you, I have a progress update instead.
My crafting has taken a new route. I still love making things, but I decided to grow and become a zillion times better by actually learning to sculpt properly. Decided to go after the dreams I had thought were too lofty. I am well on my way. I might be broke, I might be over-worked and I might be living the student life I thought I had grown out of 15 years ago, but you know what? I don't think I have ever been more proud of myself. Comfort zones are for the boring, I like lving on the ouytskirts of my comfort zone; it makes me feel alive.
I'll just leave these WIP images right here...
Haven't I gotten to a whole new level? Haven't I? I know there is a lot more learning and doing involved; in fact the growth never ends in this artistic/business endeavour, but still, I gotta acknowledge how far I've come.
First up is my first large sculpt and the resulting foam latex prosthetic:
