There has been little activity here since I was very busy and frankly just not very inspired to share anything for quite sometime.
I think for the most part I was just feeling burnt out. I had been in school studying for so long and the stress of making all that happen took a toll on me.
Thankfully I got it done. Now the challenge of finding work is the pressing issue.
Lately since I have some spare time and have been very interested in taking some computer coding courses and looking around at the various resources found on the web has got me inspired again. I guess I just love to learn new things. As a start I am going to revamp this sad looking blog so I've been revisiting some HTML basics. There really is a LOT out there for anyone who wants to learn in the DIY way. One of the resources I came across is meant to help you view some font combinations in the design stage.
The Font Combinator is awesome and you should definitely check it out if you are in search of some good combos.
The combination I came up with just for fun can be seen here. What do you think?

So it's been so long since I posted anything on this blog that I'm not sure where to start getting back into it so here we go with something fairly random.

So I have begun to meet my 'resolutions' for the year, with the help of a little app called 'Lose It'. It's totally WORKING!!!

So it has been quite a while since I did anything "bloggerly" but I am feeling the urge to post something.
This is a renedering I did of a pre-set scene we were given by our instructor. I am finally starting to get it. It really is not perfect, I already see there is lots of room for improvement aesthetically but the fact that I am getting it is a big deal for me.
3DS Max is such a very complicated program! But this also makes it a very powerful tool. The work I have seen done is so inspiring, I really want to keep at it and improve. Like most things the key is 'Practise, practise practise!'

This pooch is truly amazing! A "dog on the go" for sure.

Today we visited the Redpath Museum of Natural History at McGill campus here in Montreal. It is quite a place to explore. Anyone with an appreciation for the wonders of nature would be right at home in this gem of a building.
This is just one of the great pieces to be seen. It is a Buddha from around the 12th century Japan and is of the Pure Land Buddhist tradition. Seated in the lotus position this fellow has reached enlightenment many centuries ago.
This piece here is actually a great example of origami or paper folding sculpture on a larger scale. He is a Pterodactyl hung from the cieling and this shot shows just a small sampling of the great architectural detail to be seen in the museum building itself.

The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts!
YES, I really <3 this place. Double <3 in fact.
This is the view from above on the fourth floor. The architecture is this building is the perfect frame for all the fabulous works in the collections.
Here is a fabulous bust of Napolean on the 3rd floor with circular windows. Makes for an interesting composition with the window and buildings beyond. The setting sun shining in from the window on the left lights up the piece enough to give him a golden glow even Bonapart himself would be proud of!
