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)

La Petite Mort – My Tribute to Fracture, an 8+ Year Gathering Place & Labor of Love in Second Life

Fracture, a Second Life club of sorts with a loyal, long-lasting following, was built about eight years ago by the inimitable music curator & DJ extraordinaire, Beta Bates.  It has weathered a lot of changes, but is still going strong.

Fracture’s tagline:

Fracture.  If you’re here you probably know the deal.  Awesome music.  Queer safe space.  All are welcome, but respect your sisters & brothers & others.

When I say “loyal,” I mean that a lot of its regulars have known each other & have been friends for years — many of whom have met each other in real life, and continued friendships and relationships in meatspace as well.

Hanging out with Beta

Making Machinima again in Second Life

I found a free/open-source video capture program, so I can now capture video of the stuff I have been working on in Second Life.
I made this orb thing to test some new (or new to me, anyway) graphics enhancements to texturing within SL.
(The structure in the background is one of the cool geometric creations by the talented Suzanne Graves).

Catching Up — Apparently, I’ve Got a Lot of It To Do

So, I’m visiting my partner on the other side of the country and I’ve been here a month, and I still haven’t really updated much since I’ve been here.  It hasn’t been for a lack of things to blog about, more like.. I’ve had too much to do.  One of the things I’ve been most excited about my time here is my ability to pick up some art activities in Second Life after having been cut off from it for over two years.

SOOooooo, I am going to attempt to give the short version of my month here thus far, in pictures — real life & Second Life things — a lot of it art-related.

Help a broke-ass student by purchasing some Halloween stuff I made in Second Life!

The HALLOWEEN SHOP at Numinous in Second Life is open for the season!

I am desperately in need of funds as the Fall school semester approaches.  One of my biggest expenses needed is a new laptop.  I am selling Halloween items in SL to help me raise the money I need!

Numinous halloween shop 2014

My current laptop, which I’ve had for almost 2 years, is reaching the end of its life.  I absolutely need a new one for school and my art/design career.  The old one is unable to run anything other than a text client, so I will not be able to fully return to SL until I can manage to get a NEW laptop.  My goal is to have one by September!

Teleport —> Here

Most of the items for sale can be found in the vendors neat the entrance.
Grab some freebies from TRICK OR TREAT village!  Hang out & enjoy the scenery!

I also have a Marketplace shop, if you’d like to preview some of the things for sale:
