It's been a while | #21

Missed 3 weeknotes in the last months. I feel that many things have happened yet nothing much has happened.

– I finally got to watch spider-verse and learned about how it it illuminating uncharted territories for animations:

While these animation treatments are new to the animation world, they are all classic comic books drawing technique. It’s kind of surprising to me that it took the animation industry this long to start experimenting with animation techniques. On the other hand, I can’t imagine how much politics this animation team had to push threw to be experimental with this film.

– I really enjoy meeting people I’ve never met before and I got to do that quite frequently over the past few weeks. It’s really nice to hang out with people who are not familiar with design.

– It’s really nice knowing how many people I know are also interested in gaining creative freedom and are willing to do something about it. I wasn’t expecting friends to respond so postively toward that career path.

– It’s so much fun to think about a space. What furniture should go in there? How do I want to feel when I’m in the space? How to organize objects in a space? While I appreciate how IKEA has designed and manufactured their products, I also look forward to a day where I have a house with nothing from IKEA, I suspect it will be very challenging.
