First of all, don't be bothered by my title and think I'm an alien. It's just my simple way of saying I'm a newbie here
My name is John. By profession I am a freelance Business IT Consultant here in my hometown. I used to work as an IT administrator for a real estate developer with over a hundred employees and almost a hundred workstations.
An Artist by Heart
I may be an IT consultant by profession, but I am artist by heart. During those years of doing technical stuff, I had been doing what my heart always wanted to do... To draw.
I have some of my drawings uploaded on my Virily account, and lately using Auto desk Sketchbook, on Deviant Art. A few years ago I earned a few bucks on Fiverr.
Until recently, I had been using Adobe Photoshop to create my digital graphics. Now, since I'm always on the go, I had been using Medibang Paint for Android on my 10" tablet. (read my post here). My latest work in progress is my own avatar.
Perhaps, my best work so far using Medibang Paint is the Minotaur. As I was uploading the water-coloured pencils on paper version on virily.com (Wrath of the Raging Minotaur ), a short story developed in my mind. As I write it the short story became a three-part short story (the third part is still in my mind).
Playing With WordPress
Another thing that I have been playing with for a few years now is WordPress. Since I have a background in html, css, PHP, mysql and a little bit of java script, I felt comfortable with WordPress in using it as the CMS for my blog. Somehow, I felt that with WordPress I could be technical and an artist at the same time.
For the past three weeks I have been working on a website which was originally intended to be an online catalog for his footwear products. It turned out that I could easily make it into an online store.
Another thing about me is, I have been an Aikido enthusiast since 1991. Though I stopped for some years I started practicing the art again lately, and begin to teach the same in my hometown. Well... that's another part of my life that I might share here.
This is it for now, as I continue to explore what I can do here in Bitlanders.
Just a thought, how can I get this avatar out of his pajamas?
