A surprise awaited my arrival in-world two days ago, it was a friendship offer from CHUCKMATRIX Clip. He'd been away from Second Life for roughly a year now. We'd met in December of 2009 when he'd held a huge celebration at CMC Designs and I'd seen his works on exhibit in several other venues. He is best known for highly detailed sculptures, which can be either static or scripted along with paintings. We chatted briefly in IM and as it turned out, we'd missed connecting at the Pirats – Omega Gallery opening where he is one of the featured artists. He told me that he'd been busily re-connecting with people and he'd passed along a notecard with links to his gallery and to other venues where his works can be seen.
