I have a love/hate relationship with blogs. There are so many people out there, trying to get their voices heard, that I often wondered what I could possibly have to add to the vast amount of information available on the web. If I wrote a blog, what would I focus on, and what would be worth taking time out of my day/ week/ month to talk about? I didn't know, so I never started one.
It's funny sometimes how things work out. I knew I needed to develop a professional website (something else I had been putting off for various reasons) and when I finally settled on using weebly, one of it's features was to include a blog. This brought back, the "what would I write abouts?" Having pondered this for several weeks, I was still at a loss, when a couple of days ago, one of my ex students contacted me on Facebook to ask me some questions about how to use photoshop for costume illustration. So in a way, that answers that question.
One of the things I have enjoyed the most in my career (so far), is teaching. So I have decided to devote this blog to teaching. I will be including how-to's and how-did-I's and the occasional, I-thought-this-was-cool's. I am not claiming to be an expert on many things, but I will include what works for me, and where I got a lot of my information. I hope anyone who reads this will enjoy what I have to say, and find the information I include useful. Also, if anyone has any questions for me I will do my best to answer them.
So for now, cheers! Here's to new beginings!
