I’ve only just realised that I forgot to do a proper when I first joined this instance, so here goes!
I’m Tom! I am originally from Japan, and come from a visual arts and performance background. I’m currently teaching as a high school teacher in Aotearoa, NZ.

Lately I have found a lot of inspiration from people involved in communities such as this one, and have been working on small web projects in my spare time. Thank you for having me!

Continuing to learn more about Blender, today playing with different materials and lighting for my model

Released a new song as Blood and Dust today! Thanks to everyone who helped with the mixing :)

There’s a lot of grief and purifying anger in this one. It also features traditional Irish keening (caoineadh), an ancient form of grieving that was practiced until it was erased by the pressures of the Catholic Church and British moral imperialism.

This song was very intuitive in its creation, and we are curious to know what it conjures in others, feel free to share ~

New Windows 11 UI looks like a bad macOS + KDE Plasma mash up

Not sure if this would be much interest to anyone, but Oracle Cloud offers an "always" free tier that is very useful for spinning up small VPSs. Other providers offer similar things but I have found (at least where I live) that OC performs very well

Hey all, a friend of mine just lost their job, and they're looking for front-end web or engineering manager roles. Remote is a must. If anyone has any openings, please let me know!
