TAX MAN!




http://www.knpr.org/audio2009/SON-mp3/090929_irs-investigations.mp3


Today I was obsessively following KNPR, my local public radio station when a story related to tax law sparked my interest. The head of the felony devision for the Nevada IRS was adimately defending the IRS as a friendly institution who is there to help the little man as they fight high dollar tax evasion cases. My whole life has been in poverty up into this point, partly because the IRS pursuit of a single mother of two children for a debt passed on from my tax evading father. I called in, and actually got through. I have never felt like my first amendment rights have been more effective then they have been today. Follow the links to hear me stutter over my nervousness as I stick it to the man!

Challenger Project


I have been working on this project for a long time in my free time. I started off just modeling a Dodge Challenger for fun because I worked at a Chrysler Jeep Dodge store for four years and had long admired this ride. Only recently has the car started to look right and take detail. I am already jumping ahead though planning a city for it to race in and experimenting rigging it myself. Wish me Luck! status to come soon.

The Villa


This quarter i really feel like the quality of my 3D work is improving. This was a piece for my advanced lighting and texturing class. I think some of the modeling can still use some work, but I impressed myself with the quality of the fabric and the realism of the sun light coming through the windows. Still a work in progress, give me some critique yo!
