Ten years ago, I ran across an animation program that I couldn't wait to try. I had barely enough space on my hard drive and almost zero RAM, but I was eager to gobble up any art skill I could. I was so proud when I first made Gabby here, but like so much of my art from that time, she got shuffled away into yesterday's data files.
See, I thought it silly to indulge in these artistic pursuits. I wondered what the point was. I didn't have the time, and couldn't imagine who would even care about what I created.
Fast forward to the Eve of 2016, as I look over past accomplishments and plan fresh new goals to further grow my brand. Imagine the pride I feel that I stopped ignoring the incessant call to create, that I've cobbled every stolen minute and hour into building a strong foundation. I am honored to have created for many, and look forward to sharing with many more.
It's the wee hours again, but I am happy to see an old, familiar face. Gabby has popped up to remind me to respect my passions, my talents, my art...for a year from now...or maybe ten, I will be glad that I kept pushing on today.
...blue skies ahead!
No longer Unheard
It's hard to be heard in this world, and even harder when duties, economics, and self-doubt further drown out our sounds.
I created the Unheard voices in the hope that none of our gifts are laid to waste, that through community and support of each other, we will find outlets, and make our voices heard.
In time, I changed the name from the Unheard voices to the Visual Voice, for I no longer wish to be unheard...
