I know I said in my last post that I’d be back soon, but clearly that didn’t work out. The truth is, I often find it tough to write long-form content such as this about my life. It’s simply not the best medium to represent my workflow at this time. I’m in a period of discovery, and with that comes instability. The things I create and do change rapidly, often with little explanation beyond, “I had an idea and decided to try it.”
So, for now, this blog will be officially inactive. I’ll keep it live, both to preserve the existing content and in the hopes that I can one day return to it. But in the meantime, the best way to keep up with my work is to follow me on Instagram. I’ve also opened up a new Etsy shop for some of my random creations.
Thanks for reading!
After not working on it for a couple days, I decided it was finally time to texture the Radarts model. Though not my first time using dDo, this was surely my most in-depth use of it. After a few mishaps and setbacks I finally nailed down my workflow (which was the main goal of this) and got the texture finished. Take a look at the finished gun:

Just kidding. I’m not going anywhere. But I did start a new art blog on Tumblr. This blog will be used to showcase small snippets of my work, including work-in-progress images and random personal projects that might not warrant an entire post here or a page on Behance. Think of it as a sort of digital scrapbook. I will still be posting here with whatever sort of regularity you consider my current posts to have. Check out the new blog at berky93.tumblr.com.
Anyone who knows me well could tell you that I am never truly satisfied with calling a design “finished.” I often find myself revisiting old projects and updating them to incorporate new styles, technologies, or details that I have since learned about. There is no better example of this than projects related to my personal branding. After all, as my skills develop and improve in the various design fields why would I not update my public media to reflect that? Besides, working on projects is fun and most clients wouldn’t let me make them a new website every few months.
I’m not going to release too many details about the changes I am making at this time but I will leave you all with this screenshot from my phone to give you a small taste of what may be to come.
This summer has been quite eventful for me. I went to SIGGRAPH, helped GreenShields win $5,000 in Washington D.C., and got my first-ever job as a freelance web designer. Now it’s time to go back to the crazy awesomeness that is RIT.
I don’t know everything that this school year will bring and I think that’s the most exciting part about it. And the things I can expect – another year with CSH and RITgraph, my first “formal” asl course, etc. – only make me more excited. Hopefully I’ll have plenty of new projects, updates, and other interesting material to post here in the near future, so keep checking in! Who knows what the future will bring?
Hello and welcome to my new blog! Here I will post artworks, ramblings, cool findings, and whatever else I deem awesome enough to share with the world. I will try to post as consistently as possible, so check back often for updates.
And, yes, there will be pictures. Lots of pictures. This post doesn’t have any pictures, but don’t let that worry you. Other posts will. I promise.
