“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”

Well, basically everybody agrees that 2016 was a flaming trash fire, but I wanted to take some time to go back and find the good things that happened to me this year.  For one thing, Peri and I both got accepted to Evergreen State College.  But lots of amazing things happened to me in 2016.  Here we go!

January:
1.) My partner and I spent a weekend in Portland, hung out with a friend there, and took a beautiful scenic drive on the way back home.

Prepping for the Student Show

I finally made it to school to work on matting my Slaughterhouse-Five-themed artworks for the upcoming Student Arts Showcase.  Mentally/emotionally, it was not easy for me to be there.  But at least I have something to show for it now.  I’ll have to go back later in the week to mat my digital self-portraits to foamcore because they’re too large to be matted with the materials we have.

First & Recent – Blog Challenge

Around the Second Life blogosphere, there is a meme challenge going around, & sometimes I think those are fun to do, ANNNND I am an introspective person by nature, SO I thought I would participate.

The challenge:

Share a side by side comparison of your first blog picture beside a recent picture of your avatar. Don’t forget to share the link to your image in the comments and add your pictures to the Blog Memes flickr group.

I believe this meme idea was given to me by Ms. Trixie Cliassi last year. The idea was to share a comparison of your first blog post to your most recent or new one. I’ve just taken a new snapshot similar to the old one of what my avatar looks like today. She also asked us to share our thoughts on how we feel we’ve improved as photographers or bloggers.

For my version of this challenge, I will instead focus on my past decade as an artist working in the metaverse.

A Conversation Between the Artists On Opening Day in INTERMUNDIA

INTERMUNDIA’s first guest artist is Sowa Mai (RL artist Stephen Beveridge).  Today, as of 10 AM PST we are officially open.  As we arrived, we had the chance to chat & catch up before guests arrived. We’ve worked together before, but it has been many years since we’ve been able to do so, since I haven’t been able to log into Second Life much in the past two and a half years.  In this session, we chat about the nature of art in SL: inspiration, methods, and the recent art climate — including the newly-opened Museo del Metaverso. Later, we are briefly joined by Banrion Constantine, another Second Life artist with a lot of metaverse art under her belt. With permission, I am posting excerpts of our conversation here. (*edited for conciseness & clarity)
