"Dood, what happened to you??? Are you okay? Do we need to bail you out of an armenian prison? Or are you joining Fila Brazillia as a roadie/stylist?", wrote Kevin and as I keep getting concerned emails and comments in very much the same vein, I think it's about time to offer you some explanation of the 7 weeks gap, unheard of even in the history of this blog, well known for it's slow pace.
You my readers know that I usually don't mix personal issues with blogging, so let's make the long story short. The year 2011 was undoubtedly the worst year in my professional career as well as in my personal life. Probably as a result of the economic crisis most of my clients went out of business or had to cut the marketing budgets drastically, which in effect turned me from moderately successful graphic designer to a penniless loser close to eviction and with limited access to the net.
Being 12 months without a proper job is something I haven't experienced in my whole life. Surely it beats an armenian prison but only barely. I'm truly addicted to work, so the lack of it really wears me out and gets me down. But whichever work the devil has found for my idle hands, it's not blogging. Not that there wasn't enough material for posting (like a couple of essential addendums to the Dorado batch) but as a result of my personal quagmire somehow I've just lost all the creative energy and drive.
Anyway if you happen to have any use for skilled and experienced graphic designer with an impressive portfolio, do not hesitate to contact me.
Recently I've put all my net money into the RS account to maintain at least some continuity but frankly, I have no idea when or if I'll ever be in postion that would allow me to post some more of the choons we all love. The Howie B. remix collection you'll find below is the last release on FVV label and this blog, at least for the foreseeable future. So enjoy this X-mas present and if you feel like some charity and want to support the author, please consider using the Donate button, the eternal blind spot of this blog.
