Hi everyone. Just thought I'd drop by and give you an update as to why I haven't been on the board, and why projects I have been working on haven't come to fruition.
About 18 months ago I was diagnosed with throat cancer and underwent radiation and chemo. Everything went well and according to the specialist I'm in remission. Which is cool as you can understand. It took a while to recover and during that time I set myself some new goals of producing as many props and characters as I could for iclone. This worked out up until about two months ago when I got an infection and went into sepsis shock. Since then I've had trouble with my short term memory, and tasks I could do I cannot remember how to do them. This has affected my ability to work in Zbrush, CC and other applications. It is incredibly frustrating and most times I open the applications then go "meh" and go and do something else.
I had even started using Blender the week before sepsis and was doing okay. After sepsis I found myself having to go online just to work out what to do.
I'm hoping that this situation will be temporary, as losing one's creative mojo is disheartening. In the meantime I'm looking at as much creative stuff as I can to  boost the inspiration juices.

Damn, that is tough, glad to know you are on remission, regarding creativity, creativity begets creativity, listen to music, watch films or tv series, or perhaps Just open iclone without any particular purpose and Just do stuff... The creative mind sometimes needs to be jumpstarted like a car with no battery. Failing all that... Sometimes... Weed helps

Hi Bob,

Being as I am also enjoying a "no remission" period at the moment I know how you feel, and believe me friend I hope and pray that things work out OK for you. You have been missed around here.
