Just swinging by here saying im still not dead, but i must say that i am extremely busy with my work.
Maybe i should have written this earlier but hey, here i am.
My job has added something like 5 personell since i were away to Thailand and im still trying to get used to all the new faces.
And like the journal i deleted some months ago now i really have to talk about something, so maybe this is too sensitive and ill remove this journal but hey, i gotta say something.
One of these 5 new people was a 3D modeller. My god. A 3D modeller, and a damn good one at that.
He was also awesome at photoshop, he could animate in Flash and well and freaking good at drawing traditional stuff as well.
So i asked him as all my other co-workers did:
"Why, why are you here? Your skills are so amazing so you deserve something far better than this job."
It was so amazing seeing someone so amazingly good at something and i spent some time talking to him how to improve my drawing skills and stuff, and he had alot to say.
Guessed i learned some stuff from him, i told him i gave up on 3D modelling long ago which he said was sad to hear, he said that i had potential to make something good someday if i did not give up.
Anyhow, my bosses did not hire him.
Of course, he was there only temporary... But WHAT? WTF?
Why getting rid of someone who is actually really good at what he does? They want me to do this stuff? Im not even close to his level but of course, if they want this web-based shop to look like crap then that is what i will constantly produce.
Then something happened. Google sketchup happened (Now called Trimble Sketchup i think).
I was supposed to draw a map of a new series of sofas in photoshop and yeeeaaaah, i pretty much failed there.
So my boss in the content uploading team said to me "Remake the sofas in sketchup". Really? Its years ago i did 3D stuff.. But of course, lets try this other 3D program i have no experience with!
Lets just say i have amazed all my co-workers and bosses with my new 3D models of our sofas which will all be used in an amazing PDF document explaining what the sofas are and models they have. Guess they got another good reason why they got rid of that guy?
I can make 3D models herp derp!
Anyhow, it feels good to be back making 3D models! But its sad to lose someone i recently got to know, someone who may have triggered my artistic side to reboot.
