    2Advanced is back!

    In all seriousness though, it looks cool and probably more importantly FEELS cool. My only niggle is that I wish I could see more samples of the online stuff when I click on them instead of just a zoom, but you could be using your other "channels" like Dribbble for that stuff?

      Thanks Benjamin! haha I'll take that as a compliment. 2Advanced has always been a huge source inspiration for me, especially the work of Shane Mielke. And I agree on going a bit more in depth for the online stuff. I wasn’t going to add it at first, but wanted some in there. It’s on my todolist to create a few use cases and add those to the site too instead of just a single image. I just wanted to ship it this week because I've been working on it for way too long already haha.

        Always better to have SOMETHING out there versus nothing. Good luck!

    Really great work, site runs smoothly and looks sharp.

    I work hard but I don’t ‘hustle’ as I don’t think that’s a healthy mentality.

    Thank you! Now tell all the startups how gross "hustling" sounds and is.

    Now this is a portfolio! One of the best I've seen on here in a good while. It's got flashy new-ish features without being clunky. I'd love to learn how you built it.

      Thanks for the kind wirds sir :-)

      I’ve used ThreeJS for the 3d background scene, and the dashed circles are SVG's, generated from JS. Everything is animated using GSAP. Oh and everything is bundled and minified using Webpack. I've made the switch from Gulp a few weeks ago and really like it. Webpack feels a bit more intuitive to setup and doesn't require a lot of plugins to do the basic stuff. I'd love to go more in depth but unfortunately I don't have a lot of time to write today :)

    Very nice work. My only critique would be to know a little more about each portfolio piece. Other than that love it!

    Also, I too built a PC recently. I run both OSX and Windows 10. Good times!

    Really slick! Just fancy enough without it distracting too much from the content and usability of it all.

    You mention it's hard to write about yourself but the about page is good too, says a lot and gives a good insight into you as a person without coming off as pretentious.

    The work on your Instagram is really cool too.

    Nice one.

    This looks awesome.

    You should check out clojurescript. If you are, you should then check out the libraries by Toxi - http://thi.ng/ - awesome stuff.

    Congrats on the launch.

      Thanks Eliot! I find it pretty hard to write about myself, so it's really rewarding to read positive comments on the About section :)

    Looking great, Rick! I noticed something weird on one of the meemo details. I think it's the name of a rogue artboard Imgur

    Really great C4D work. Also, I almost instantly thought of no man's sky. Space + Low polygon asteroids in the bg.
