I came across this TED Talks video on Youtube featuring Jake Nickell and it really struck a chord with me. From how he built a tree fort as a young kid with no carpentry skills, to the way he learned photoshop by just clicking every tool, I could certainly relate. If BluEyeStudios had a philosophy, he describes pretty well what it would be in this video.
My need to make ideas come to fruition is what makes me who I am. The failures can be frustrating as all hell, but the small victories every once in a while keep me going.
GO MAKE STUFF!
