A new beginning…


After my stay at Autodesk ended seven weeks ago, I never got to say anything like “I’ll be back”, because I never really went away. Posting here continued more or less as normal. But now, I’m back at work: today is my first day at Solid Angle SL as one of the Solids, as they’re [apparently] sometimes called ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll be working from my home office, with occasional visits to Madrid. My job? Senior Support Engineer.

The workspace, all set up and ready to go…

Having an expresso and figuring out the Soft Lighting parameters…

  1. awesome! Not sure if I can call you a “Solid” though…. you have gone from “Soft” to “Solid” very confusing hahaha

  2. How did your wife respond to the news that you’d be working out of the home office 24/7?
    (assuming you spent some time @ the Autodesk offices before that…) ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • She was jealous ๐Ÿ™‚ I worked one day a week at home while I was at Autodesk; during the spring/summer/fall, I was happy to ride my bike to work. But during the winter, I took the train and I won’t miss that as much as riding my bike.

  3. Very happy for you man, and working from home, hell yeah ! that is a great bonus. Imagine it more for people like me who have home at the other side of the globe, I am jealous and you are lucky, all the best.

  4. I wish you the Best Stephen, you have been helpful to me and others, and I hope it continues. I’m a little slow entering this type of work, I just hope it all works out ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Working from home is great! It was a one way street for me, never going to have a regular “job” again. Tons of family time. Never miss an event. Even “crunch” isn’t bad, because you get to eat your snacks and drink your coffee with loved ones. I think you will have good times ahead. Best of luck to you. Thanks for keeping this site going and for being a crucial front man for the Softimage community. Good stuff.

  6. Congrats on the job. Time to get a laptop and work in the garden.

    That dog so cute, but it look into those eyes, it’s got naughty trouble written all over it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I do have a MacBook Air, but since it’s late fall, I won’t be sitting out back in the sun for a bit…

      Harley the dog is not so bad, but she does have a thing for socks ๐Ÿ™‚
