re_startRestart, rethink. Everything. Again.

It’s that part of my life. Sometimes you have to close the past. Close the world, open the nExt (seems familiar? Serial Experiments Lain). So I’ll open up the new one. I have a lot to do, I have a lot to learn. “Improve day by day” will be my new motto. Freelancing, when you have a full-time job is not a good idea, trust me. Been there, done that, never again. So recently I closed all my personal freelancing works (one minor thing is left, but page is 90% ready). When you have a freelance job, which you should do at home, it will frustrate you, even when you want to relax, after a hard day’s work. It’s just not worth the money.

Where are our dreams? Scattered in time and space. We all bury our dreams deep within us, and keep on living with fake smiles on our faces. How can we live like this? You always say everything is fine, but you also feel, that this is not true.

Always trust your instincts, they never lie. Open up as you were a child, and reveal all those things inside you. Just check them, and make them live, this way your dreams will come true.

Kai Tracid – Conscious:


Now, that I´m here
breaking my relationship with time and space
watching my life through the milky glasses of a
now it all becomes so clear.

If I had the opportunity to smell
the enchanted wind of a spring flower
I would take a deep breath
to relax.

If I had the chance to get the tingling emotion
of warm white sea sand
slipping through my fingers
I would hold on to the feeling.

If I could see the pure and carefree smile of a
as the original nature of honesty
it would be so refreshing
being able to respond.

If I could hear the greatest sound
the silence of forest in the early morning
just interrupted and up valued by the lonely
call of a bird
I would answer.

If I could have my body back
to be reloaded by a sip of crystal clear water
water which is not polluted by chemical industry
I could taste the freshness of the unspoiled

Now, that I´m here
breaking my relationship with time and space
watching my life through the clear glasses of a
I get aware of the small things which are least
the greatest.

I left my life
my physical form of life behind
I realize my blunted and senseless way of life
I should have lived my life much more conscious..

Building better worlds

A few days ago the “Building better worlds” slogan popped into my mind. This was a slogan of a fictional company (Weyland-Yutani) in the aliens movie. I started thinking about this thing: how can we build better worlds: we only have Earth, but we really should try to make this place into something better. It all depends on us, on you too.

You can do something about it, just make one more people smile a day, and this will bring more and more smile in the world. Just be a little more positive and be optimistic. Try to be more patient, have a little more sympathy and things will become really good.

And a thought from Ascetic Brahma Chaitanya, it is from the movie Liquid Crystal Vision:

“You are nature aren’t you nature? So if you hurt any part of nature it will certainly rebound back upon you!”.

Inspiration: Ryan Church

I am always amazed by the works of great designers, like Ryan Church. He is a concept designer, matte painter, who worked for the biggest companies like Universal Studios, Industrial Light & Magic, Paramount Pictures, and also participated in some computer game concept design (Command & Conquer 3:Tiberium Wars, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3).

You can check his portfolio site, to see pictures from different projects, like Star trek, Star wars II, Star wars III. There are also personal pictures on the site. The works are really great, nice, clean designs, powerful visuals.

There is also a little shop on the site, containing Ryan’s tutorial DVDs. A few titles: Volume 1: Rendering Matte Vehicles, Volume 3: Rendering Hi-Tech Architecture, Volume 4: Rendering Low-Tech Architecture. Now these DVDs are not as cheap as movie DVDs but they provide useful tips and everyday techniques that can lead you to successful designs.
