So decided to spend my summer in Vancouver and I'm having a blast. I lucked out in finding a place downtown with a good friend and also lucked out in finding a job... because it would be disastrous otherwise :S I got a job teaching Stop-motion animation and occasionally 3D (with blender) to kids at Byte Camp. It's a really fun gig, I personally love it. I love film making and I absolutely love love love seeing these kids be as creative as they are. I learned a heck load from these kids, more then they'll ever know and it's such a refreshing experience.
So yeah, note to all artists or creators of all sorts, learn from kids! be a kid you'll create great stuff from it! Their creativity is so raw, untainted and ultimately courageous. No fear of failure, what good role models.
So in the spirit of doing what scares you, I went out on a bike ride and decided to paint. No control z which is a tool that for me promotes continuous self-doubt :S but don't get me wrong I'm not a hater of the option to undo... it's just personally not healthy for someone like me.
PS. Love west coast living, I could get used to this
