This weekend I got back to work. This one isn’t perfected yet actually. Refining for textile printing, sharper curves and slightly more harmonic proportions but I had to just kick this out to jolt myself back into the groove of designing for my projects. So this is kind of a rough draft. I don’t know why but this pattern which I first sketched out a couple years ago really appeals to me. More samples of other designs on the way.
Where to begin.. I’m surprised I haven’t blogged anything here in so long. In this time I’ve cranked out dozens of websites, learned much more about WordPress, have become faster and doing my job and more. I’m getting into a creative phase again, this weekend I got around to some work I needed to get back in the groove of to kick off my textile design projects. I’m going to need a helping hand with these because I don’t sew, don’t know how to make clothes and I’m too spread thin to get into these things. The actual printing of textiles, prints, etc I can handle though and I think I’ll use Spoonflower to help me out with textiles.
Stay tuned, more samples of my work are coming. For print/textile design, animation and perhaps more.
If my style of design is right up your alley, or you’d like to collaborate, or purchase / commission anything from me, drop me a line at email@example.com with the subject heading ‘interested in working with brian-dean.com’ or something like that which will let me know that you’re down to earth and legitimate, and not some pesky spammer.
I’ve been talking about this for a while with friends and most folks I bring this up with haven’t heard about it, and it’s not that easy to explain. The implications of AR are overwhelming. Here’s a quick, creepy, cheesy primer of sorts.
Technology * human innovation * exponential increase of both human and computer knowledge= a tidal wave that’s going to overwhelm us and change reality like no other time in our known history. ‘The singularity’, one of my favorite topics ever. I like talking with others about it because I’m waiting to hear a reasonable argument that deflates this theory. I can think of one, which is a topic for another day
Watch Disappearing Dead: Economic Optimism about Immortality on PBS. See more from PBS NewsHour.
As with the singularity topic, I’d love to see if anyone can argue this down. The way I’m thinking of it now is, if immortality isn’t a possibility, how so? We die when our bodies give out on us. So, what if we’re looking at a future where technology enhances our health faster than anything that can kill us?
If I’m going to keep up with acquaintances, friends, family and people I love having conversation with I’d rather keep up with their blog than their Facebook. Facebook is successful enough to monopolize social networking, for the most part. But everyone on Facebook is stuck with the same parameters and rules. BLOG
I finally have this going now. Wooo
I made a pretty dumb mistake when I first set this up Friday night, and had come to believe that I messed up the database file. Long boring story. So I had to uninstall, re-install, waste more time with this.. yeesh. I troubleshoot enough at work. Lessons learned
I’m learning a lot about more about WordPress now and pretty stoked about that, I’ll be experimenting with it here and there on this website.
