I’ve been wanting to do this for a while. Even though I put my values and personality into my business, I felt that there were posts that were more business oriented, and ones that were more personal. This is my chance to separate the two.
So welcome to my new personal site.
You will still see plenty of posts about my series work, but more behind the scenes. Lots of animation business related stuff, story discussion, business and creative life topics. But also, my life in Belgium, some political and social thoughts, and maybe even some insight into my views on life on this planet. I am still a student. After almost sixty years, I’ve learned a few things, but I am always so interested about new thoughts, ideas, new art I’ve never discovered. I’m in a body thats getting older, but I still feel at times that I’m a kid in a candy shop with all of the goodies available to us as humans. So many experiences. I love it. There isn’t enough time in the day. I love working on my shows, working with other artists, creating. But also sitting with my sons playing lego, or saying ” I don’t know but let’s try and find out” to the heavy questions my 7 year old asks me. There is also a spiritual side to me. Although I am not religious, there are many thoughts and ideas from great teachers from some of those religions I use as guides. I’m not afraid to use the word God, but it can be many things to different people. I won’t try and convince you of anything. Just emptying some of my mind here. There is not enough room or bandwith to empty all of it. And some I will keep for myself or just my family.
There you have it. If I touch on something that inspires you, or want to interject a thought, please do so. I won’t post any negative attacks, or hate. It’s just for us to share. A creative life or just life as a human.
My new business site for joemurraystudio.com is almost finished. I’m excited to share that.
