ramblin' man

so, yeah. I haven't really done much work lately on the couple of projects at the forefront, and I haven't been doing as many sketches as I'd like. So likewise, there hasn't been much new here. It's mostly been worries about money. I'm looking for a second job, and I finally have a promising lead -- an interview on Thursday -- but I've been too stressed about money to really be able to concentrate on anything. And on top of that, they're raising my rent. By quite a bit, so it looks like in a month I'll be moving. Sticking around in the area; if I get this job I'll definitely stay in Redmond. Otherwise? Well, I'm screwed if I don't, but it's cheaper in the surrounding area, like Kirland, or Seattle.


deconstructing...

It's about time I updated this project. Deconstructing the animated face was a piece I did back sometime in college, in Flash, and reworked as a Cocoa app for OS X. The app added a really nice abilility: the use of OS X's voice synthesis and lip-syncing. Without further ado, the page is here. I talk a little bit more about it there. I'd love to hear feedback on it, in the unlikely event that anybody actually reads this / looks at it.
