I've been so slack in putting something on the blog - to those who follow - I sincerely apologize. Life just got a little crazier than normal - not unexpectedly so, but crazy still.
My wife and I are in the process of moving to Sydney, Australia - love that we're going, just hoping the going gets going; we've been stuck in South Africa, a 'holiday' which should have taken 3 weeks - we are still here 6 weeks later - no visas (and no indication of when they would come). Needless to say - I've got a bit of time on my hands (not loads - because I have been working hard on projects). I can blog while I wait for renders, and while I wait for files to upload to clients in the States. It sounds glamorous - but it is not.
This is me right now: I am sitting as straight as I can because I have a massive back-ache - this due to the fact that I have been sitting on a couch for 4 hrs already, not out of choice as this coffee shop I am currently at doesn't have any free 'normal seats' - I need the normal seats so I can use my computer like a normal person. I have to be at THIS coffee shop (Motherland Coffeeshop in Rosebank, Jo'burg - I do recommend them) because they have the 'fastest' (about 40kbps) interwebs connection. I can't upload from home because there's only a slow, capped internet connection - it would be capped in a few hours if I were to do all this stuff at home. Alas - Motherland Coffee it is - it HAS to be.
God is good tho! We expected our visas to pull through by the 1st of July, obviously that didn't happen. Soon after we realized we might be here for a while, I received an email asking whether I'd be available to help out on a certain project in the States. The concept sounded awesome - so I agreed. I am currently working on it - and its gonna be rad!
Below are screengrabs of another project I have been intensely working on over the last 2 weeks or so [among a few others] while in limbo here in SA. I have had the privilege of working with some awesome people on this project and some others. There are a few projects coming! Check back soon!
Stoked to be 'working' - sad its not at Hillsong yet!
