Illustration, Design, Music, Blog
This is a website that is multi-faceted. It's my professional portfolio, it's a blog, store, music hub, and more. I am Kieran Somerville, also known as Kieran Stephens. I am known as Kieran Stephens in Second Life, which is my display name for both of my avatars (Tokyo Enyo and Starlordx1983 Resident).
I am a graphic designer by trade with skills in Illustration, Publication Design. I also am an amateur Music producer who designs their own track covers. I work within the virtual world of second life as well as of course - our first life!
VIRTUAL WORLDS CV
Experience & Expertise In Virtual Worlds
April - November 2020
CEO / Designer (Kieran Stephens Designs)
I owned and designed using bakes on mesh and full perm mesh templates. As the saying goes "What does not spark joy, throw out the window" - I was becoming tired and was not feeling like I was doing anything justice. I was having trouble keeping up with the virtual world brand financially and put it on the back burner until I learn to create mesh on my own.
Sept - Present
DJ @ Darkstar's Speakeasy
Sundays 6-8 PM SLT @ Darkstar's Speakeasy and Voice Lounge. I'm on the sinful and naughty shift. I Think i'm more trolling and nerdy than anything else!
March 2020 - November 2020
Dj & Manager (The Beehive/The Beehive Event)
I dj'ed at our place when we owned it. I ran the event back in June and July. I managed the Djs with Dj BBG and liaisoned with our building manager each time we moved lands. We weren't making enough money on other ventures to sustain keeping the original hangout, and dissolved in November of 2020.
Feb 2020 - Present
Extending my real-life qualifications - I've been available for freelance design, photography, and other work. I won't do cheap projects, which means I won't be doing illegal works and recoloring or reconstructing copyrighted works for other clients.
I realize that I'm not a perfect person. This is my personalized virtual world's CV - and I take second life as casually but polite and professional as possible. While it's not real life, you do have to work things sometimes as if it were.
I'm a quirky designer with a flair for never losing the bright side of life. Chances are good I'm breaking limits, rules, and everything else to get the job done. Of course never breaking laws in the process!
