A rant on creativity with two exercises

A common misconception is the belief that being creative is difficult or only something some people are able to do.

Making a Minecraft skin

I have chosen to enter another Minecraft related competition to challenge myself to do pixel art!

Video Editing as Meditation This morning I woke up around 9, even though I had intended to wake up at 4!

Already an art commission in the making, and a potential other one for music thanks to participating in one of the two Halloween themed contests held on on Planet Minecraft this year. Feeling slightly … Continue reading New month
