Bless me Father for it has been a long time since my last blog. I guess I’ve been too busy doing a lot of graphic design and illustration projects, but I have to confess to getting rather jaded of late, where my dreambird website is concerned.
Today I spent too much of my life (which lets face it, I’ll never have the chance to re-live) reading and deleting 232 comments posted on my site over the last day and a half. This is quite a typical number of messages from this site. Now please don’t get me wrong, I love fan mail and I am blessed with lots of wonderful people sending me their messages of appreciation, but it is rare that any of these people actually say anything worth posting on the site, without me looking like I have an ego the size of Heathrow Airport.
More frustratingly, I also get a similar amount of complete and utter drivel from the same sort of self-centered cretins who are hell-bent on simply improving optimisation for their own website. These are the web version of telesales people who have only one purpose in life and that is to impose themselves and their completely unwanted wares on others. Being English of course, I have a distinct sense of decorum, and therefore find this sort of behavior not only rude, but it just about takes the biscuit!
I’ll tell you what would be nice. If someone just wrote a specific comment about one of my posts. Just for once, some opinion or sage advice from a person who loves aircraft or illustration or both. Or a person who doesn’t love those things, but has something so say. There must be one or two of you out there…. Go on. You know you want to.
For inspiration, here’s a picture of work in progress on my Me109. Perhaps someone might be interested in writing the text to go with it?
