You know what I miss?
I miss university. I miss being constantly surrounded by people so passionate about the same things you are passionate about. I really miss always having a ready audience to discuss techniques, ideas and theories from art, games, animation and more. Amazing partnerships would wax and wane spontaneously; like ebb follows flow.
Alright. Out with it. I need a partner. I am looking for the Lennon to my McCartney. The Elton to my John.
Partnerships are just so crazy empowering on so many levels. You support and challenge each other to be the best that you each can be. The sum will far outweigh the number of parts.
It is hard to sum yourself up to fit the 2 page resume rule, let alone in a 100 word blog post, but this is what I bring to the partnership:
I enjoy both words and images; But also theory and analysis as well as creative business models and strategies. Passion and enthusiasm drives everything I do. I am greedily in love with knowledge - about most any field.
The summary must read something like: Artistic renaissance man.
At any point in time, I am writing on a couple of books, putting together a prototype for a game or sketching out an animated short film, with countless journals full of other ideas and stories waiting for their chance. Why? Because I enjoy creating. I need your help with these things. Not necessarily on the legwork/execution part. But what's more, I need to share these things with you, to make them stronger and better experiences.
To this end, I am looking for a creative partner. Somebody who enjoys bouncing ideas back and forth as sparring, brainstorming or refining. An off-beat sense of creativity would be good; Flair and fluidity in expression in either images, words, sounds or actions. A great sense of humor would be... well, great. It is an area I struggle a bit with. Extremely valuable is the ability to quickly jump between paradigms, realities, genres and topics. Not precious about own work and preferably with a manageable ego. I think that's it.
If you haven't got the faintest idea what I have been on about for 200 odd words, it is not you. If it is you - I'd love to hear from you!
Let's see what amazing things we can create together. Together - I think that is the operative partnership word here. Together.
