I don't make anything short of carbon dioxide and a liter or so of saliva each day. I'm more of the consuming type.

I do nerd stuff. I make 3d assets that end up in lithography projects and advertisements.
Interface elements (graphics, templates, etc)
Custom software add-ons, usually for connecting to or utilizing APIs such as Streamlabs or Twitch. For the purpose of people 'gamifying' their audiences. (earn points for watching, etc).

I do it because it's incredibly enjoyable Creating something new or enhancing upon something that already exists, or helping to provide a tool that might not have existed; allowing others to do the same (create).

I do enjoy cooking and do most of it in the house. I've also brewed beer, made sausages and bacon, and done some canning and pickling. Every now and again I'll get into a baking mood and make fresh bread for a couple of weekends.

Explain what you mean by 3d assets? Do you make these things and then send them off? Or do you get to see the lithographs being made? I took printmaking classes as an undergrad, and while they didn't offer lithography while I was around, they did have these beautiful stones that were left over from past years.

That sounds wonderful. Cooking is a fun and sometimes meditative thing to do, I know I like cooking for others more than myself though. I've always wanted to learn how to bake bread. But I'm such a snob for good bread :lol: I grew up close to a bakery and you could smell the loaves baking at night in the wind, I think I was spoiled.

Check out The Fresh Loaf. Good place to learn instead of going out and buying a bunch of books.

I want it. Badly. Could hit some students over the head with it, amongst other things.
