Current favorite activity: taking photos of the kids with their helmets on after they finish riding and have moved onto things like play dough, rolling a ball, or playing with a stuffed animal.

I don't typically like challenges that have arbitrary rules (or rules that are set to make one solution look worse than another), but this one fits with something I'm already working on, and I think shows a potential of clip-path that I often forget...

Back from vacation to West Texas, so naturally here's an animated CodePen inspired by the McDonald Observatory logo.

Missy Mazzoli and the new stage of classical music... As a bonus, I've been loving each straightforward illustration in this series, especially this one and the one for St. Vincent.

Looks like it might be time for me to finally rework my website (danielcwilson.com ... and change my "logo") assuming this article is true about Papa Johns and its branding adage.com/article/cmo-strategy

Really enjoying drawnpodcast.com/ (I'm currently at the halfway point)... a fairly thorough discussion on aspects of animation and its history.

I sometimes worry that what I write about veers too niche (animation typically) when it comes to people knowing what I do. But then I remember resumés should speak to that.

I *want* certain people/organizations to know my other skills (like the fact that I've built multiple large-scale front end applications centered around interaction, animation, performance, and accessibility... across web/browser, React Native, Cordova, and Windows native).

I just don't want to *write* about those things.

The latest Animation at Work newsletter is out with special guest editor.... Dan Wilson.

Felt the need to focus on the ✨future✨ for my turn after fantastic editions from Lisi, Nadieh, and David K (and of course the work of Rachel and Ivana)
