Unforeseen events have unfortunately forced the cancellation of the Flash Platform Workshop that was scheduled for Monday, December 3. Apologies for the inconvenience; if the workshop ends up being rescheduled I’ll post any information as soon as it’s available.
In other news, Adobe has recently posted a short Q&A between myself and Steve Anderson, associate editor of Vectors and director of the Ph.D. program in Media Arts and Practice at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts. Check it out when you get a chance!
Wanted to bring a few upcoming events to your attention. First up: on this coming Monday, November 19 at 10:00 am PST, I’ll be joining Dmitri Siegel, designer, writer and art director for Urban Outfitters, and Peter Lunenfeld, media theorist and professor at Art Center College of Design, as part of a panel on ‘Designing for Convergence,’ sponsored by Adobe and the new interdivisional program in Media Arts and Practice at the USC School of Cinematic Arts. This panel will be simulcast as an interactive online forum via Adobe Connect and you are welcome to join us! If you would like to attend, you will need to register first.
Two weeks later, on Monday, December 3 from 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm PST, I’ll be teaching a Flash Platform workshop focusing on programming in ActionScript 3.0 and MXML and at the basics of working in Adobe Flash and Flex (and how you decide when to use either one). This workshop will also be simulcast via Adobe Connect; I don’t have the registration link as yet but will post it when it becomes available. UPDATE: The Flash Platform workshop has been cancelled until further notice.
You can get more details about both events.
Also, I’d like to thank Scott Fisher for inviting me to speak at the USC Interactive Media Division’s weekly forum last night. ‘Seeking Eloquence in Interactive Space’ was the topic I tackled, and we ended up having some good discussion afterwards; got to chat with a few former students of mine as well. A pleasure.

I’m very happy to announce the launch of “Timeframing: The Art of Comics on Screens,” a new website that explores what comics have to teach us about creative communication in the age of screen media.
To celebrate the launch of Upgrade Soul, here’s a screen shot of an eleven year old prototype I made that sets artwork from Will Eisner’s “The Treasure of Avenue ‘C’” (a story from New York: The Big City) in two dynamically resizable panels.
The last couple of months have seen an uptick in published commentary on Strange Rain, much of it owing to notice the app received at this year’s Modern Language Association conference in Seattle.
Dialogue bubbles huddle together in the Unity authoring environment like backstage theatre performers awaiting their chance to shine in the forthcoming iOS and Android release Upgrade Soul, from Opertoon.
