All the latest goings-on from my whirlwind world . . .The thing about technology is that it marches on – like time does – but faster.
State-of-the-art becomes becomes state-of-the-old-and-outmoded in what seems like the blink of an eye.
Since the demise of Sheer Heaven – over two years ago now – I have known that at some point, I would have to sit down and sort through the 17 year life span of Cre8it.com. Pull the content that did not want to get lost, update everything valuable to the new state-of-the-art, and figure out where to go from here.
That’s a work in progress – very slow progress, but some things have gotten done.
I completely re-wrote and re-drew my Creative Drawing Playbook, and now I have taken what I think is my best drawing and painting series out of the obscurity of the blog post format I experimented with in 2013, turned it into PDFs with remastered support videos, and released it again.
This is Sketch & Journal One. It’s a step-by-step journal through fun pictures that teach you art school stuff like shading, perspective, and color mixing without disturbing the sense of fun. Many people took that workshop back in 2013, so I have an option for a $15 copy of the new one available for them.
If I am going to release workshops again, I needed to find a way to be available to students for feedback, questions, etc. Had a hard time figuring out how to do that like we used to. But I think I have a good answer.
I set up a Facebook Group (not the huge one I mentioned last time) called Staying After School. This Group is open only to my students past and present. I would love to hang out with you all again, see what you are up to, and answer any questions you might have. This will also give me a chance to be there for new students if they need help.
As I mentioned last time, you don’t have to fo the whole Facebook friends thing and all that to join a Group. You can just use Facebook like we used to use Yahoo and just go to a Group there.
And finally, Cre8it.com has gone the way of all old websites whose job is done. It’s a little hard to say good-bye, but having the two sites, creates too much confusion. So, from now on my only personal site is my name site
Hope to reunite with all you former students for some real time sharing again!
