09232010: Bugs! There everywhere, haha. No not actual bugs. Working with after effects today and I noticed a major bug. Whenever I open after effects and want to do a Ram preview my project disappears. I have to change the project preview quality to see my project. I first came across this issue during my Mac Lab days if anyone has had a similar issue, feel free to comment below.
09072010: Anybody go on Google today, they have a fun little interactive flash game. Check it out for yourself
07312010: Its 12:30 and I’m scouring the internet for inspiration. The mac lab always comes though for me, check the grand central linkage page Its loaded with tons of inspiring work. If anyone comes across any artwork that lights a spark under them, please feel free to leave a comment with a link to the inspiriting art piece.
08042010: I’ve been up all night watching after effects training tutorials and I have learned a lot.
08192010: Hey its been awhile, yes I am up at one morning because of this unbearable heat. I am starting school soon and actually looking forward to it. I am going to try enroll in a graphics design class but, I’m sure they couldn’t teach me anything that Skocko didn’t already teach me. Until next time.
07122010: Sorry for no blog updates but I’ve been trying to figure about whats wrong with Firefox. Ever since its most recent update (3.6.6) every time I restart my PC it erases my bookmarks, extensions, add-ons and its flash plug-in crashed on me twice! I don’t know about you but I’m fed up with having to restore my bookmarks and browser settings. thinking about switching to a different browser (safari). Its seems every where I go, I see more people using apple products.
07142010: Update I found a solution to my problem, a big thanks to the guys at the Remove-Malware Forums. The problem was I use a program called Sandboxie and what Sandboxie does it isolates a program from the rest of PC. In this case I was “Sandboxing” Firefox so that my PC couldn’t get infected by malware. What I didn’t realize is that I had Sandboxie set to delete the contents of the sandbox every time I closed my browser. So because the program is designed to not allow unwanted changes to the system or the program in question it didn’t save any of my settings, bookmarks, or history. The solution was right in front of me the entire time. I guess I just had what Skocko calls a Homer Simpson moment. There is nothing with Firefox. If you ever have any PC issues head over to Remove-Malware.com and click on the “forums” section, there are good guys over there they’ll help you out.
06272010: The end to the first weekend of summer. It was eventful just not in the way I had hoped. I know this blog is about art but I also like to think & hope it teaches its readers about life. Behind every post on this blog there is a particular meaning. The meaning behind this post is take chances, live life and most of all enjoy life because you only get one. So use it or lose it! : )
07052010: Its 12:30am and I don’t have any projects to work on, if you find one please let me know

June 22nd: My last day of high school. Finally done four years of work for one piece of paper it was all worth it High school see ya in ten years Summer is here!! I will update the blog everyday & continue projects on my own but without the help of the Mac Lab. I wonder if ill be able to focus without the help of the Skocko, we’ll have to wait & see To all my fellow graduates CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
06242010: The summer season is here! This is usually a time of laziness for me but I will get work done I’m going to start working now!
06262010: At home on a Saturday, no after effects on my laptop so not going to accomplish anything By the way drop by the Video Copilot blog some good stuff on there. Until next time.
06022010: Senior year is almost over, finals coming up. For the mac lab final we get to use the Ipad which I think is a cool way to end the year in my favorite class, but before the class of 10′ gets to throw their caps in the air we still have classes to pass. This past weekend I saw the new prince of Persia movie & I must say it was great! I can’t help feeling a little depressed at the fact that we can’t turn back time and relive some of our favorite moments of life. Its been said that there’s never enough time in the day, well I say there’s not enough time in one lifetime to accomplish every goal or dream you may have. Never take for granted the time you have, because time is the one thing we will never get back.
Note: I will not be updating the blog for the week because I have to get to work on projects for the final, but Don’t be scared to visit the blog anyway
05272010: It’s time for an update! I am two-thirds of the way done with my latest project just have to pick the sounds and make a few last minute adjustments and bam! I’m done. But it’s not that simple you never know how much work these motion graphics artists actually do until you attempt a project yourself. I’ve got to give credit to every motion graphics artist out there, this work is very hard and time consuming but it’s what I love to do and it’s not considered a job if you love what you’re doing. By the way, anyone understand the love of teaching? because I don’t understand it one bit. That’s all for now
05122010: It’s my birthday toady, finally legal Still working on newest project, very frustrating but I’ll get it done (hopefully soon) Remember patience is a virtue
Side note: I know there are no galleries , I am working on them but senioritis is a deadly disease By the way if you want some CS5 tutorials heard over to the mac lab blog, Skocko recorded these himself
05142010: Sitting in the mac lab, next to Christian . Don’t feel like working after my near death experience. I created a new gallery check out my artwork!
05152010: Not much to update, to much of a headache to work on projects. I wont leave you empty-handed though. I just found this interesting article, its worth a click
05162010: Just found this incredible portfolio. The creator of the site & all it’s work is Altaf.K lets all click the link and admire his breath taking work.
05172010: Three hours of fun in the in the Mac Lab! Hoping to finish this text animation today but my patience is running thin!
05182010: Not a lot to report today, hitting the gym pretty soon later. By the way check out the gallery
05192010: I’ve been scouring google in search of inspiration and so far I found this reel I will post more on the “inspiration” page I plan on building later
