About:

Milk and XYZ – blogging by Daniel Spencer

If I can’t find the artistic and cultural experiences that I want, I create them.

Life and the Universe:

  • Love Art
  • Love Animation
  • Love Science
  • Love Hiking
  • Love Gardening
  • Love Gaming

Statement:

I have been professionally involved in the arts for over 15 years and have started many exciting creative projects, companies and hubs. These include Pegbar, Giant and Burn After Inking. I am an active practitioner of digital art, broadcast and community building.

Eduction:

  • MFA Art in the Digital World – NCAD, (where Art and Science makes test tube babies).
  • BA Hons in Animation – BCFE Irish School of Animation, (an incubation centre that puts you through the gruelling pain that is animation, and you still come out alive and loving it).

2020:

In 2019 I moved out from the city to Co. Wicklow. In 2020, I plan to document some of the art, adventures, challenges and highlights of my life through blogging, vlogging and streaming.

I am also exploring the world of gaming, augmented reality and streaming with PiEye TV and Erik Roche Farrelly.

To dust oneself off

“A life spent making mistakes is not only more honourable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.”

George Bernard Shaw
