I just finished a song and animation for the latest SpinTunes songwriting challenge. Animating this brought me back to my childhood dream of becoming a cartoonist. It also reminded me of how much The Far Side has had an impact on me; the baboon I drew seemed especially Gary Larson-style.
Just a quick bit of news: Finale (music notation software) featured me on their blog!
I'm going to be speaking on a couple of upcoming panels about crowdfunding, so I thought I'd share some statistics about Patreon, and my Composer Quest patronage. Hopefully these stats will give you a little insight if you're thinking about launching your own Patreon project.
Last week, I asked my Composer Quest patrons to join me in an online jamming experiment. My friend Alex pointed out Plink, a cool site that lets you jam with random people on the internet. By adding a hashtag to the URL (#cqpatronjam), we were able to have our own "chat" room.
