So, ya probably heard by now–via Facebook, email, text, phone call…that I spent a good chunk of last week participating in Autodesk University’s Creative Studio Suite. It’s a spin-off from the very successful mobile digital art gallery they launched at last year’s conference.
I was fortunate enough to make this one and MAN, was it absolutely fantastic. some of the most inspirational, fascinating and uber-talented creatives in the world were at this event. So you can imagine how inspired I am at the moment. There’s a whole line-up of artists on the Autodesk Sketchbook blog. And I even had an opportunity to sit on panel with my good friend, B. Rabe, for a little pow-wow about iAMDA, MobileArtCon and my personal artistic journey after going mobile.
An unreal experience–made even more special by the wonderful group of artists I got to spend some extra quality time with. Jewels and very very good friends. and yes, I cried when I left. It is really special to grow with this group–and this was a monumental moment within OUR movement. As this event was my first moment of commune with the greater pool of digital creatives and “technologists”.
I did a blog post on the iAMDA site about it (for detail). But here, I just want to send love and hugs to my favorite peeps. ALWAYS special to spend time with you…and I will see you all soon!
Susan Murtaugh (i love you!!!!), Deb McMillion (I love u too!), Benjamin Rabe…(wait…I think I love you all!!!! :-/), Luis Peso, Shaun Mullen, John Halliday, Matt Connors, Sal Navarro (and Maria too!), Jacques Pena, Chris Cheung…was so great to see all of you. And yes, I really do think I love you all! Such a great group of people. So fun! (way too many laughs! haha) But beyond that, I was so inspired by ALL of your work and learned tons. Awesome time!
Next stop: Hamburg/London…Whoop!
