Besides the obvious reason of wanting to do more, experiment, and broaden the horizons of I.D - I decided this for a couple of reasons. For one, I want to give all of you (who support and visit the site) more to enjoy and look forward to. Secondly, I wanted to give myself more freedom in what I post. Not that I was necessarily limiting the content before, just that if I expand I want to do it right. With so many blogs out there, I always do my best to craft my own to a respectable and creative level of meaning and quality. Not to mention, also maintaining solely original content and never "re-blogging" or "re-posting." I'd rather create my own art or at least offer my own unique take on it. With that said, I have thought out some new series of posts that you all will be seeing soon on the site. Some sooner than others, and some more often as well. This is also all experimentation, so it's certainly subject to change. Witness the growth. Here are some series to look forward to:
Saturday Morning Cartoons - You may not wake up at the crack of dawn anymore on that first day off school for the week, but that doesn't mean you have to give up those good ol' saturday morning cartoons. Although it may not be in animated, Nickelodeon fashion (the old Nick, it's no comparison nowadays to how it used to be) - this will offer some cartoon drawings courtesy of Imagination Detonation. This will also begin a foray back into cartoons as I know there's been more of an emphasis on the site recently on photo and video content. Here's to hand drawing.
I.Debate - One question I get asked sometimes is why I don't allow comments. Well, to be quite honest - I've never been much of a fan of comments that, for the most part, just consist of "Nice" or "Good job." I'd rather just let the post be there and showcase the art. However, I am very much a fan of stimulating and intellectual conversation through the digital dropping of comments. Therefore, the idea arose in my head of speaking (well, writing) on certain controversial topics of choice and having people offer feedback and discuss with each other on that matter.
Shutter Clutter - I take A LOT of photos. In fact, the majority of them don't even get posted on the site. I try to select the cream of the crop. My favorites. This series will be a select batch of random flicks that I think are worthy of making their way onto the 'Life Captures' section of the site.
Depth of Details - Many little things in life go overlooked. Often though, attention to detail is crucial and makes much more of a difference than you probably think. This series shows you some of those very details that are hiding in plain sight, just waiting to be discovered (and appreciated).
Who Knows Besides Maestro - I made all these different new series and categories, but that doesn't, by any means, conclude that they'll be the only things you see (by the way - the conversation videos will certainly still continue). Touching back briefly on what I said before, I want to have the freedom to create and post whatever I want - while still retaining that level of quality and creativity. Like I always say at the start of a new year, expect the unexpected.
Just sit back and enjoy. I'm not asking you guys to buy anything, only spare some time to take a (hopefully pleasing) look at the content that I take time out to create. Thank you for reading and I wish you all the best of days during this next cycle of 365 twenty-four hour periods.
