Geez.. what not actually 🙂
Life is really keeping me occupied I must say. But all the better I guess. I got dragged into a voluntary project to provide subtitles for a Dutch mini-series. It is 3 hours worth of translating from mostly Dutch to English. Mostly? Yea.. as there is a fair bit of French involved too. In the old days the ‘high society’ thought it was fancy to speak French amongst each other. Especially when they were discussing things the servants should not hear! I am very fortunate to have a French ami that is willing to help me out with the fast speaking French bits… my knowledge of French is way too rudimentary.
I am still enjoying Oz. Life is very easy going for me at the moment. I am going out for long walks almost daily and I finally have a good grasp of the street plan covering about a 1 hour radius walking. That distance is slowly expanded and there are many interesting spots actually not so far away from the place where I stay. I guess it is time to make some pictures. I bet heaps of them can be used in the graphics design.
Ongoing plans… I have done some work on converting PSD mock-ups into full websites. Somewhere in the back of my mind I am tinkering with the idea of setting up a service like this. At the moment I cannot do commercial work, but I can think about it and plan ahead. Further to that I also helped out ‘Sydney’s wrongest band’ with the graphics for their first CD. The original design was made by the lead singer, who uses ‘Paint’ as main tool, and cut-and-paste as main technique. No need to say some clean up was required. I offered to vectorise the cover and clean up the relevant bits. The final product was made with Inkscape and nicely printable at 300 dpi.
