The meeting was at Microsoft store in Park Meadows mall. Huh? There is a Microsoft store here? That's news to me. There is an Apple store there, too. Hmmm. I'm about to do something drastic with my hard disk. I wonder if consultation with these people is advisable?
The meeting went fine, except that there's not enough seat for everybody. Some people had to stand. I met with a young and talented artist Aldana Zanetta. I critique some of her work. She's very talented, but still lacking in scale and structure. Composition skill would be nice to have, too. I noticed she was interested in perspective drawing lesson. Rapid Viz book may be good for her.
I sent her a message on her website, giving her my old homepage URL. I don't know if the message reached her. The website looks unfinished. Still, looking at these old works, I can't help but think that it was a whole different lifestyle back then. The carefree part. Looking back, it's like I was sampling a different lifestyle every 5-10 years. Yep. Sounds just like me. Which means that I'll be living yet another lifestyle in 2 years, when I retire from my current job.
I already hitting the books lately, preparing for the eventual transfer. Also, I'm due for vacation. The last time I took a week off, it was due to lung infection!
I also saw Nintendo 3DS. I should've brought my Nintendo DSi. Especially, since there was no program on it. Apparently the e-store won't be there until May. Oh, well. I can wait until May.
I also saw eee EP121. Pretty slick. Unfortunately, battery life is only 3 hours. Hey, how about designing such a device so that it last 7-10 hours, eh? 3 hours is too short for heavy duty doodling! Otherwise, I don't mind it that much, even if it's a bit pricey.
