AHH! I never update this Journal. Well, that's not true: I'm updating it right now. Whatever.
I've started learning Blender3D (holy-wow-awesome-sauce) and I'm planning on making a short. It's called File, Save and I'm documenting the whole learning/production process. Check all that crazy mess out here www.filesavemovie.com/blog
Tangentially related, I'm trying to pick up speed painting again. It's been way too long since I've done fine art for the sake of fine art and I miss it. Plus, it'll help with the texturing and movie things.
