there have been a few times over the past few years when i come on here and apologised about being busy and not being able to update as often as i would have liked to. i have again been idiotically busy these last few weeks but i have to say for once not with tiresome domestic or business matters. true, i have been working evenings and weekends for my present client, but i’ve also been tramping through london’s abandoned dockyards, building impromptu beach sculpture, dreaming up a truly genius idea for public artwork and creating my first truly awesome piece of generative art. not bad for a damp february! i also built an art-game late last year that i haven’t had the chance to release yet!
i’ve been desperate to blog about it all but really just haven’t had any time. i mean, it’s nearly midnight now and i’ve done nowt but code and sleep for days, weeks. i’ve been doing the high-pressure freelance paying gigs so solidly for the past 6 months that it’s beginning to affect my health and so next week, when my present contract finishes, i’m hoping to get away for a few days of r&r and document all this. just a simple room in a b&b in some anonymous townÂ somewhere. yeah, just me… and my mac… and a wifi connection… and a box of k-nex, my sketchbook, camera, stop-motion animation software, a duffle bag of science, art, software & mathematics textbooks and my favourite faber-castell drawing pens! :)
