Inspiration Hunt

Alas my blog views are dwindling. The numbers are falling fast. Maybe too much time spend on MW2 instead of giving you people something to read!!!
Although I have finally set up my new hard drive so will be able to sort out and post up some new work. which I havent done for AGGGGEEEESSSSS!
First thing is that the research is going well, I’m currently in the process of writing out a questionnaire which I hopefully will be able to give to a mixture of designers, illustrators and the general public, as a way to get insight into people’s opinions of technologies impact on society. so if you could help just sent me a twitter/email/comment and let me know if your interested.
Second thing is that i have been going on a massive inspiration hunt and managed to waste a lot of time surfing the web finding different blogs and forums to sign up to and get spam from 🙂
so far I have joined or read(but got no spam from)

If you use online social networking (like me) you should give this article a read

“Your fears are shared by many, and they are justified. Even in our increasingly online world, some creative professionals are still wary of using social networking as part of their self-promotion efforts. Some artists dismiss the idea as a superficial or detached way of trying to make connections and secure future work, while others just see it as the latest passing fad. However, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to justify these perspectives as more and more Art Directors, Agents, Illustrators, and Designers are finding success at building relationships and creating fame through the use of social networking.

Untill next time. Peace
