Summer Update

By Marisa Lerin Wed, 05/24/2017 - 01:19

I have a little life update for you today, as Jordan and I are moving into some new territory in the next couple of months. You may have seen that we recently promoted our favorite intern Thani to Junior Webmaster. He is a very welcome addition to the team, as Jordan will soon be following a dream this fall and enrolling in a master of fine arts program in digital media (but don't worry: he'll still be staying on as Pixel Scrapper webmaster!). Jordan will be attending the Digital Arts and New Media program at the University of California, Santa Cruz, which means we'll soon be Californians! We're getting ready to pack things up here in Oregon and move down the coast, where we're looking forward to moving into on-campus family housing at UCSC. I have not been to Santa Cruz, since I make it a point never to visit anywhere before moving there (or at least it always seems to work out that way!), but it sounds like a very beautiful place, with both redwoods and a beach. So I don't expect us to suffer too much. :)

Jordan has taken a long break from his interest in digital art to start up and help me run Pixel Scrapper, so I'm very happy that at this point we have the flexibility (and help from Thani) that will allow him to continue on as webmaster while also getting back to something he's had to put to the side for a few years. He has done enough digital art work in the past to earn a full ride for his master's program, and I'm quite excited to see what he gets up to! You can check out his past work here, and don't be put off if computer games seem too technical for you: most of his require pushing the space bar and not much else.

A new location is not the only thing on our horizons. We're also expecting a new member for our family at the end of November! It's a baby! I feel like I should write a bit more about it, since I just spent two paragraphs on Jordan, but I don't know what to say. (Insert feelings of amazement and wonder here.) So we have our hands full of new possibilities and opportunities. We're doing our best not to feel too overwhelmed and to focus instead on all the wonderful blessings that have come our way!

Of course with all these changes on the horizon, we don't want you to think we'll forget about Pixel Scrapper! Both Jordan and I are deeply committed to the continued growth and development of Pixel Scrapper, and that's not going to be changing any time soon. We may have a few extra things on our plates soon, but we're not going anywhere, and we feel confident that with Thani's help (and of course the ongoing support of our great community) Pixel Scrapper is only going to keep getting better!
