Full Sail - Full Circle

Today has nothing to do with Epcot.
And yet has Everything to do with Epcot’s legacy.

For today: 2 Years, 5 Months, 3 Days, 29 Classes, 126 Sleepless Weekends, & 500 Liters of Highly Caffeinated Tea Later… 

I’m finally graduating with a Bachelors degree in Graphic Design from Full Sail University!


I’m also receiving the Advanced Achievement Award for my field, which includes giving a small speech as part of the ceremony.

One of many groups I have to thank for this are my frequent visitors to E82. I have a rather small artistic ego (still do), but it was YOU with your unbiased superlative comments and appreciation for the work I’ve done here that gave me the confidence to make the hard choice to go back to school full time (while still having a full time job). However, that choice also meant something had to give and ironically E82’s evolution has had to take the back seat during my formal education. Posts had to be squeezed between classes and sadly I could not participate in pivotal events (like Horizons’ 30th).

Those days should be behind us soon and I have a tangible list of over 100 projects for The Epcot Legacy including whole new sections, History/Legacy additions and certain projects that extend well beyond the confines of the digital site.

At nearly three years old, we’ve only scratched the surface of what E82 can be, and it just got a lot larger!

Hey Moose!
I’d love to get the Living Seas out this Year, but (in addition to the mandate of a month long preview for contributors) there’s A LOT of other projects (E82 and others) that have to be done before I can even begin production of the next FWSS album. Pre-production is in full-swing that not only includes disc one’s Pavilion tribute, but Disc two’s “High-Concept” experiment as well.
It takes a lot of work and multiple pieces have to fall into place for the compilation to reach the highest quality possible. That being said I’m seriously trying to streamline production so that more than one of these gets released every year.

I would "try to imagine" E82 submerging to SeaBase Alpha before Spring 2014!

No pressure Joshua. Just curious... and I completely understand. Continue the great work and we'll try and be patient! :-) I'm sure that whenever it arrives it will undoubtably showcase "a future of amazing technological creativity."

Congratulations! A well deserved degree. Sorry that I'm late with this. Have been out of order for quite a time due to severe illness.
