A man. An old man inside, though I'm only 46 on the outside. Blonde hair, going white, just like my grandfather. Rail-thin, I weigh in at 145 and 6 feet, or two meters and 66 kilos. Just call me stick man.
I'm 24 years sober this coming May. For those of you who know what alcoholism and drug addiction is like... You will also understand that my teeth was the least of my loss. I began my sobriety with nowhere to go but up.
I've recovered from my alcoholism, mostly. The material possessions were easier than the emotional catching up. My wife and I bought our home about a year ago. Small mortgage, and plenty of fixing. But it's a nice house. Old. The emotional hurdles of getting sober are many, and of a great variety. Turns out that there are many other destructive behaviors than just mood-altering chemicals.
My wife said I was an artist at heart, and I should try some of my ideas. So I picked up a pencil and paper and properly sucked. So, I tried woodcarving. Not bad, better. My poetry came too easy, so I thought it must be no good. Which I think to this day. Metal sculpture was a bit of a failure, though not terrible. I got a computer and started doing a bit of photomanipulation, and vintage photo restoration. Which led me to some photography, and then to stocks.
I wanted to do a work of my grandfather, but had very few pictures of him. So I looked into doing him in 3D. Which became my preferred mode of artistic expression. I'm progressing nicely with several aspects. Namely poses, morphs and textures. The actual modeling is very slow going, if I ever get there. I'm trying to learn more as I am able. But with working all day, there just isn't a lot of time left in the evenings.
I'm working my way toward retiring from carpentry. And I'd like to take up 3D work full-time. That's a goal of mine.
I have a talent for finding things. Just ask for what you need. I really can find or produce most anything. It's nice when I can photograph or render it, but I won't make you wait too long on your art before I start doing searches for you.
I want to say more, but this is probably boring you. So TTYL!
