I just finished my BA in Studio Arts and I am getting pretty serious about installation, painting, and then trying to do more sculpture. I just started getting serious about learning max/msp/Jitter, and I have been building a foundation in Lightwave as well.
i just finished my first semester doing a ba in sonic art and i am liking it lots. we've been doing some installation stuff and we get to be taught about max msp in the 2nd year. so i am well looking forward to it.

i love painting and doing collages too but i find it way different to making tunes. i havent done a painting for about a year or so now as ive been doing music for most of my spare time instead.
personally i find that the buzz i get from making a tune is fairly constant from the initial idea through to the finished piece but with painting i get the buzz mainly when the piece is finished, though there is definately something really nice about sitting down with a brush and some paints sometimes instead of shedloads of computers and instruments

also : how do you do that 'so and so wrote' thing?

cheers everyone for your input

If at first you don't succeed, quit.

Just tell people you're good at making really small firewood.

I'm an oil painter(old school).

Painting goes hand in hand with the music.

I've done album covers for Melodic(Compilation:Psapp,Pedro,Baikonour..), Earwom(The Earlies) and Guided By Voices(Tobin Sprout).

that's the thing. they succeeded for 7 odd years, until I got get a really bad aussie summer, and 3 of them turn up their toes. i've managed to keep one alive for the 12 years i've been looking after it, got another 3 seedlings (3-5 years), which are starting to take nice form now.

Aww! I love it! Vinyl toys RULE.
Thanks Machinate, I truly appreciate that. Vinyl Toys are fun but an expensive hobby! I can't believe the money some of the people spend on their Vinyl Toys (not that I'm complaining since my toy is about sold out now!)

My interests are may and varied, I do graphic design for a living. Working now for a T-Shirt company. We do T-Shirts, embroidery and promotional products. Most of the stuff I do there is boring, and often times I have to sacrifice creativity due to severe time constraints, and there is also a lot of boring "technical" work, color seps and prep for screen printing, logo recreation etc. - but I do get the occasional interesting project. Working on a hot-rod t-shirt at the moment.

I'm fascinated by screen printing and plan on buying my own press, probably a little four color manual, to do my own posters and shirts at home.

I also do poster and flyer design for a local community based non-profit arts advocacy group. I've been working with them for three years now and have much more creative freedom with my projects.

I also like drawing, video, motion graphics and am getting ready to start a 3D illustration class next week.
