remember Geocities? I used to have a page, and an Angelfire page, and a Gurlpages page, and I had that running neko-cat marquee. Don’t worry I wont bring that back, just deciding to wallow in my desperation.
I’m working backwards in art, too. I never went to artschool unless you count the time I was 7 years old and went to “art school” where my job was to desecrate a forest worth of chartpaper with smellyfelts.

I’m learning everything as I go and the humility is heartbreaking (Sorry, what’s ‘vector’ ?)
