Mask n’ Hat
Just some screen use of my props during the height of skyrim fever.
What I make is for other people. Why it has to be perfect is for me.
I could have been an academic. I’m a glutton for knowledge and tend to dive into research, especially when it comes to methods and approaches of crafting. But this can also be a quagmire for me. The easiest way out of that mental indecision is to match a new technique I want to try with a friend in need. Most all of the projects here are for someone else. It helps set a goal post on something I’d otherwise work on indefinitely. It also crystallizes my attention on one finish line instead of chasing countless threads of new ideas.
I really do enjoy the journey of crafting. I’ve often found myself sitting quietly at my workbench working away, and not till hours later notice that I didn’t have any music or other stimulus on in the background. My default state seems to be “work.” My friends help me show regular results of it. So maybe it’s selfish after all.
