Livebrush Introduction

What’s this all about?

Up until this moment Livebrush only existed as a personal project. From this point forward, it will be documented and openly discussed. This includes code, ideas, inspiration and the industry trends that shape creative software. This is the Livebrush Project blog.

Getting here has been a wild ride filled with many uncertainties and doubt. But for the fact that I foolishly decided to make this my first AS3 and Adobe Air project, it’s also been the most rewarding experience of my career. From its humble beginnings as a simple idea for my portfolio site, The Livebrush Project has evolved into what I hope will become a resource and inspiration to many others like myself.

I’m a designer who’s had a love-affair with Flash since it was just another plug-in competing for the spotlight. In the time since, I’ve been grateful to work with many clients that needed a designer “that could do Flash”. I’ve watched Flash evolve into a platform that, to this day, pushes the boundaries of interaction and experience design.

What’s next? Well hopefully there’s at least one other person who shares my passion for this topic. But going forward, I’ll just start posting stuff I think others might find useful.
