Over the past couple of weeks I’ve added a few new files to activeden (the stock flash website I sell a my flash bits on). The most notable is a full website/ image gallery called Sideways. The name comes from the way you scroll sideways to view the gallery (mouse wheel supported).
There’s a ton more activeden files that I’m pursuing between early hours and late nights (both HTML and Flash). In fact in a weeks time you’ll be able to own a wordpress blog just like this one if you’d like I just need to polish up a few final touches and bugs.
All I do seems to be work though. I mean there’s a few ours with the kids and a few with Susan at night, but the bulk of my time is spent designing and coding these days. I’m just considering this the season of hard work though. On a recent project runway Lauren Hutton said (I paraphrase), “that she wasn’t the best because of her raw talent, but because she worked four times harder than any one else.” And I’m certainly not the most hard working—there are plenty people out there that work longer hours and hard jobs than me. But when people ask me what I do for fun or if I did anything over the weekend or the night before the first thing into my mind is I worked on this file or that project. Unlike my friends’ response: “I went skiing on Saturday, or snowshoeing with my kids…”
I’ll get there. Right now I’m just trying to secure an out or a security blanket if I need to find new work or want to go freelance full-time again.
Feel free to check out the new file or you can check out this versions I threw on the web to highlight our trip to hawaii we took a few months back (see I guess it’s not all work). Ha.
