    I change mine up on around 3 to 6 month intervals... but as of Friday, 14 August, 2020; this is a picture of me playing a Hammond B-3 Organ in our music studio in San Francisco-- Sunday, 1 June 2014.... hence my user name.

    I started a Deep Purple tribute band in the Autumn of 2005, and we continued until our disbanding in June 2014. I was in essence the "Jon Lord" of the band... if anyone here is old enough to remember who he was, and the band and the music itself.

    My guess is that those in Europe, South America, Japan, and Russia will be a bit better able to relate to what I'm talking about. They were never all that accepted in the United States... except everyone knew them as the band that played "Smoke on the Water".

    I had a fun time playing those old songs, but like everything else, a chapter must come to a close, and then it's time to move on.

    Mine in other hand is my project that I started back in early February. I name it the Ibishu Mashiro which was named after a female protagonist in the anime I watched back in 2016. I started to get better when the COVID-19 lockdown started in late March but my progress has been slowed down since mid-June.

    Cool!

    You know... I don't want to say that COVID is a good thing, because it certainly isn't. But if there's a positive outcome to it, and Lord only knows... we have to fight really really hard to find anything positive to say about 2020 thus far... it's that the virus has forced many of us to truly shed our outside influences that stifle our creative mind and spirit-- and allow them to come out with the increase in time that some of us now have.

    Creative artistic design is not like capturing lightning in a bottle. There is no nifty formula to writing the perfect essay, book, or podcast script. No magical formula for making and editing the perfect YouTube video, or composing the perfect song. Or in your case, creating the perfect car.

    It takes time and subjective state of mind, of being in the moment. And none of that comes easy. You have to work at it, and sometimes-- the most challenging part of all-- the creative spirit and the practical side of things have to meet in the same place.

    I'm not sure if any of what I said makes any sense. It's getting late here... maybe I'm just rambling. But what I'm trying to say I guess is.... GOOD JOB!

    I might continue my study as an illustrator and design a fictional anime character for someone. I could use my time to make more cars in future but it will be a bit slower or maybe faster I guess.

    When I was about 9 I started drawing an alien character called Bloopy. Then later while playing Worms Armageddon I adopted Bloopy as my own nickname and came up with a worm version of the character with alien antennae. My avatar is a drawing of that worm by another Worms player (nicknamed Wishmaster I think).
