My State of Mind Professionally
I am constantly in the state of learning. Currently I'm taking classes online for motion graphics. I'm learning Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects. Opportunities increasingly arise for me to edit video and create multimedia elements to accompany print pieces. 

Personally
Lately I have been taking workshops on the classical methods of oil painting. We are studying the limited masters (color) palette and painting with subtractive color. You wouldn't believe the feeling of freedom I get when I walk up to a white canvas without a client driven content assignment. Although intimidating, I think the experience expands my reach for design solutions.
