I’ve spent the past two months focused mainly on designing and building virtual motorcycles and other fun items in Second Life (Second Life is a free 3D virtual world where users can create, connect, and chat with others from around the world)
While this creative excursion has been a lot of fun and even a little profitable, I do need to get back to what I do best – graphic art and filmmaking. That said, I wanted to share some highlights from my creative efforts in Second Life where I am known as Daniel Wolfsong – Artist, Auteur, Inventor, Philanthropist, Adventurer and Compulsive Creator.
As with my Real Life art business – my work days in Second Life can, at times, extend to 16 hours a day. (When I am focused on creative problem solving I completely lose track of time and quite often even what day it is!) One of my favorite quotes is: “Find what you love and let it kill you.”
While I will be cutting-back on my work hours in Second Life I will certainly not be curtailing the wonderful quality time I spend socially with friends and family there.
All the equipment and software has arrived and is ready to be used. Today is “Clean-up the studio and set everything-up day”
The joy I get from creating music is unlike the joy the I get from creating graphic art or filmmaking. It seems to tickle my soul a lot more.
I have long held the belief that music is what feelings sound like. So maybe that’s why they tickle my soul on the way out!
My first attempt at mixing beats & playing with loops in the studio. Kinda dark trance / deep house … relax, close your eyes and go for a ride through the primal shadow material of my subconscious.
Been wanting to try this for about a year – ever since I got moved-in to the new studio. I already have all the equipment from back in the day when I was mixing my own background music for animations.
I have also been experiencing some amazingly complex and incredible emotions lately and, for me, music is what feelings sound like. So, I’m gonna learn a new skill on my extended vacation.
One of my all time favorite mottos: A full life will be full of EVERYTHING.
Love like you’ve never been hurt before.
Dance like no one is watching.
Sing like no one is listening.
I’ve been on vacation for the past week and I liked it so much I’m going to extend it for few more weeks. Because it finally just dawned on me that I own this business and can do whatever I want.
I have been working straight ever since I moved into my new home and studio in April 2017. Time for a break.
