Chip Mom’s Kitchen #20: The Grand Experiment

Posted by

I’m going to level with you here: sometimes when I step into my kitchen I only have the vaguest plan of what’s about to go down.

Bit by Bit: Advice for Aspiring Artists

Posted by

Welcome, friends, to a new article segment I’ve been putting together. Unlike most of my work on The ChipWIN Blog and my writings with Nerdfit, I wanted to address some things that I’ve seen plaguing many new and promising artists. I do this in the hope that those new folks will realize that their problems, much like many new artists’ problems, are not only common but solvable.  If you’re new, relatively new, or just having issues with thinking that you’ll ever make a great track, join me for a monthly pick-me-up in Bit by Bit!
