Hello out there.
I am at work (paying job) and it has been kind of slow. So slow that I have done all my work and now I am almost bored. I say almost for two reasons. Number one is that I have FaceBook games to alleviate my boredom. Number two I downloaded GIMP so I can play around and make some graphics for our CTR Program.
I do not really want to play FB games at work. I would rather do a blog post about how slow it is 😉 It is close to lunch time and I do not want to get into creating something in GIMP and have to stop just as I get into it. Art is fickle like that. You can’t just start and stop and expect things to look good. Most of the time I have to do things in one sitting to ensure I have consistency through out the image.
I do have the stuff I need to work on something though. I have an idea, a tool that will work, and I ran to the corner store on my break and got some sugary foods to power my creativity. While Adobe Illustrator would be ideal, but I do not like the free ware version and I do not have the “need” to have the Adobe creative suite on my machine, graphics is just a side duty.
Another reason not to play FB games is one of my co-workers has direct view of my screen. They can see pretty much everything I do. Typing in a blog post almost looks like I am sending an email while FB games do not look productive at all. I find them kind of annoying, but I keep going back to keep my brain off of how monotonous my job is. Now that I have GIMP I might look at them less. I am not that concerned.
I think I will sketch out the idea I have for my GIMP project today, head to lunch and then get to work.
Yeah, that sounds like a plan.
