So how is 2016 shaping up so far. On the project front, it's moving in the right direction. I've picked up the Star Trek Seating Chart data and begun the final verification. Yes, that's correct. I am scrubbing through all 80 episodes once more time. People can't believe that I've gone through some of them that many times but it's necessary in order to verify the information.

I've also shifted over to the Illustrator version first. Designing vector pieces is my stronger mode than coding. That's probably due to the 25 years I've been at that side of things. Had I been coding for 25 years I imagine the interactive piece would be done first. But it's best to play to your strengths to get the baseline down. And when it's through, I'll return to finish the d3 version.
The second project going in tandem is the construction of a new faux script. No details are forthcoming yet as I don't want to reveal too much too soon. I do have a deadline for completion of the test piece, May 22nd. That's when I'll begin revealing what it's all about.
Winter is possibly the worst time for a job search. The end of the year is not when people are looking to hire new writers/designers. And the first of the year seems to be when people are trying to figure out where they need to be headed. In short, not much is going on. I assume things will begin to gear up shortly.
