I had the opportunity this week to be interviewed by Clint Walkingstick of Eye Say (and one of the guests on The Reflex Blue Show HOW Conference Special: DAY TWO). The questions focused on making the leap to being an in-dependent designer. You can read the interview at the Eye Say Web Log here.
Here we are, still …here, I guess? We broke a lot of stuff on the site Monday. I’m just saying. If you see today’s comic, and I hope you do, I cannot guarantee you will be able to see any of the 175 others. Of course, as with any good home improvement project, we’re breaking it all so we can make it better. Wildly, haphazardly breaking it. But ho! Forward we march into the wild blue yonder here at 36 Point.
Welcome back to 36 Point! This is my first post using Movable Type 5, which we installed over the weekend. I’d like to say it has gone off swimmingly, but as with most beta software it done broke a lot of the crazy stuff we’d programmed into the site. In fact, there are probably going to be a lot of bugs here and there over the next few weeks as we add new features and build up the new site. For instance, right now I’m having an awful lot of trouble categorizing this post as a comic, which will of course prevent the comic from being seen at all. I guess you’ll know how that turned out by the time you’re reading this.
That being said, the sketching that appears on this strip is most definitely not the fault of MT5. When I return to my place of origin I promise I’ll get you a clean strip.
I was going to use this space to critique the new AIGA Design Jobs/Behance website experience, the confusingly URL’d portfolios.aiga.org but that subject has become …robust, as it were. Probably going to pull out of comic-blogging mode and do some straight-up design writing on that subject. Watch out for that this week, after I’ve had time to test and use a few more features.
‘Till then, keep that creativity up! Peace —
Wednesday I made a promise that we’d stick with Newton’s artistic longings, so consider today’s comic a minor distraction.
I’m not sure how much I want to go into the issue at hand, for fear of exposing myself. Let me just say that sometimes in life, things happen, and the best way to deal with them is to share them in three panels.
