(r)evolution.

Back in 1998, there was a moment where this message graced the front door of our site:

There was a great ruckus in the Dreamlands. Voices asked, "What is happening here?" The Dreamers said quietly, "We are dreaming new dreams...soon things here will be very different." The frightened voices asked, "Why does it have to change, we liked the old way!"

The Dreamers said, "Without dreams that grow and change we die..."

The Morpheus Company Online Portfolio will soon be undergoing metamorphosis.

It announced the impending arrival of the second incarnation of our online portfolio.

In all fairness, at the time it was a fairly significant revision. We got new look, a better name for our newsletter and adopted a new logo. In my mind, it's when The Morpheus Company really began to find itself.

Today announces something that, by comparison, is a mid-life crisis.

Where we got off training wheels in 1998, today we're freaking out and buying a sports car. Welcome to M2, our codename for the third incarnation of The Morpheus Company's Online Portfolio. What follows via the link below is a bit of useful information about the site. If you're impatient, the pretty pictures can be found under the portfolio link at the top of this page.

contact madness

I had to briefly remove the "instant gratification" web form from the contact page in order to enhance its security. It's back now, and infinitely less likely to get "borrowed" again.

For about four hours, the form had been hijacked by a spam robot. In that brief time, it managed to randomly email countless offers of enlargement, enhancement and education around the world.

For the paranoid, I'd like to clarify that the spammer in question simply took advantage of a brief joy ride on our mail server. No personal information was leaked or otherwise compromised in any way. If you actually received any spam from a dare2dream.com email address, please forward it to morpheus@dare2dream.com so that we can attempt to source the troublemakers.

school's out for summer

My time as Official Jewelry Edjamacator of Diminutive Persons has come to an end.

With the exception of one incident involving a particularly recalcitrant saw blade, no human flesh was maimed in the warping of young minds. Various bits of metal, however, did not escape unscathed.

edjamacating

One of the more amusing things about losing my "young turk" status in the art scene is the growing illusion that I not only know what I'm doing, but that I'm actually equipped to inflict such arcane knowledge onto others.

To further this insane notion, one of my clients recently asked if I'd be willing to teach her young artist-prodigy daughter a few things about basic metalworking, fabrication and generally how one goes about spending productive time in a jewelry studio without setting yourself on fire.

Unable to resist an opportunity to warp young minds, I'll be spending part of the next few weeks in the role of Official Jewelry Edjamacator of Diminutive Persons.
