Damn! Not only do I need to make the art. I need to document it, and let me tell you( if you didn't already know) translating 3d art into 2d photos that communicate the subtle nuances of color and texture is quite a feat.

Then of course after accurately documenting it , I need to promote it. Write about it, email about it, more uploading, linking, describing and tagging. "Tagging" who knew, I thought that was something kids did with spray paint in alleys.
Ok all my grumping aside, I am excited to be creating a presence for myself in cyber world.
