What I do all day

If you follow me on the Twitter/Flickr/SCED thing, you will likely have seen this already, but it’s worth posting here. It’s a little taster of the sort of thing I do every day, condensed down to about 30 seconds through the magic of timelapse! Unfortunately my little Flip only records two hours in one hour segments, so that’s all we have in this video. I probably could’ve done with setting my nikon to timelapse more frequently than one frame per minute too, but it works!

It seemed to get a good reception on the flickrtwitter, so I guess it’s relatively interesting, although I think a lot of the interest came from Hospital stalkers – I know you meticulously went through this frame by frame to get the Sick 2 tracklisting out of it!! Yikes!

SCED – February Marches on

February came and went, and took another four weeks of daily creative spurts with it. If you have been following me on Flickr or Twitter, you will have seen this already, but it’s always nice to have a record of what I’ve been up to on my blog too!

This month, I learnt a bit about the Flickr API, which made making this post considerably easier. Perhaps not as easy as it could be though- I still have a lot more to learn!

This month, I got the letterpress going again, which you should have already seen if you are a regular reader here, and came up with the usual nonsense of whimsical illustrations, scrawls on post-it notes, and even came up with some random animation experiments, including the Speedbeard a couple of posts previous on this very blog. All this formed the bread in a very tall sandwich filled with winter Olympics, record covers and DIY. Cool!

After the fold are all the old direct links, for posterity’s sake. Continue reading “SCED – February Marches on”

This Central Station lark

Shock Horror, I’ve joined another social network recently! This one is called Central Station– it appears to be a network for creative people. I guess it’s similar to Behance, but I never really understood that, and this appears to be a bit more British (well, Scottish, to be precise) and a bit more personal.

Anyway, I don’t really understand this either, but it’s probably because I’m not very good at being social, and to me a network is something you make with CAT5 cables and Wi-Fi. Regardless, it seems pleasant and I approve of the post-it-note yellow, so I’ve put up a bit of work for other members to look at!

Putting stuff up seemed to be the right thing to do too, as people are looking at it! CenSta first added my Post-it book to their blog of things they like in February, which was very kind of them. It’s nice to be nice to the nice!

Not only that, but they then went on to feature my stopmotion experiment from 2008 ‘Full Mouse’ (embedded above or here on Central Station) in a prominent position on their site, which went on to get more views in the space of a week than it ever did anywhere else on the internet combined. Amazing!

So if you’re creative too, or if you just want to be a member of another social network, you should check Central Station out! It doesn’t matter if you’re not Scottish – I’m pretty sure I’m not a Scot, and they’ve been very welcoming to me, as I think they are trying to grow beyond Scotchland.

Update: They’ve put the video on their front page now too! cool!
