February 25th, 2019 Update: I am adding designs and music videos made before this domain was bought in December 2013. Unorthodox Weirdness was originally posted on July 9th, 2013. I had a different domain at that time called katherinebarnett.me. Unfortunately, I lost all written content for the blog. I did write a little bit about the design on my Youtube Channel. You can read more information about Unorthodox Weirdness below. Thanks!
I am only 19 videos away from 50! It feels great to be close. Thanks so much for visiting this channel! I took many strange turns with this design. I am kind of on the fence with this one. I do love the song I used and how the video looks. I’m finding lots of great synth pop songs on freemusicarchive. It’s awesome…
It took me about 3 hours to make the design in Paintshop. It didn’t take me long to sketch the 3d pattern. I wanted to retain the 3d image. You can see bits of it in the finished design. I had a hard time with textures. I’m trying to find the right balance with textures. It’s a constant struggle… Well I hope you like it!
I was going to call the design Childhood Nickname: Weird but it was too long. It’s an homage to all the times I was called weird while growing up. I think the designs look weird as well.
Song used in video: Hindsight by Nevada Base.
