you want the short version or the long version? okay, good.
this little blog began its journey in early 2014. fast-forward two-and-a-half years, and i had finally published my first post. three months later and i had two entire posts under my wing. maybe you get the idea?
with the creative process sufficiently slower-going than the man in black trying to climb the cliffs of insanity, i asked myself what i could do to bring this process to a dog-who’s-afraid-of-basically-everything-trying-to-climb-the-cliffs-of-insanity’s pace. the answer was at once apparent. i would combine my 6-month’s experience with digital 3D modeling as a hobby with my, at this point, 3-year’s experience with talking about talking about eating things. and so foodsbeforedudes 2.0 was born. but only after months of meticulously CGI-ing a version of every photograph i’d ever posted on the blog and then some. why? a girl’s gotta stand out somehow.
and it was all uphill from there. or downhill. or whichever one of those is supposed to indicate the end of a struggle. i hope. we’ll see. come along for the ride, won’t you? i’m not the world’s best driver, probably, but we do the best we can with what we have and, much like the comics version of bucky barnes who puts on the captain america uniform knowing better than anyone that “[he] ain’t the real captain america”, i’m tryin’.
