+fox-and-the-hound Posted June 26, 2012 Share Posted June 26, 2012 (edited) Yes, I know it's a bold claim, but I assure you it's not something I would say unless I knew I could back it up (I even made a little poster for it...) For those who don't know me, I've been design geocoins for a while now and I've met some really great friends along the way. Geocoins have been a passion for me over the years and working closely with other cachers to create them has been a tremendous experience. I've learned so much and enjoyed so many wonderful moments with each coin. After much thought and almost 6 years after designing my first trackable geocoin, I've finally made the leap to go another round. I've been working on a new design for quite awhile, but after spending last summer visiting cachers at events and sharing ideas I decided it was time to start again. After designing hundreds of geocoins over the years though I couldn't just make another without shaking things up a bit. This time I was going to go outside the box... WAY outside. I've designed following other people's ideas, collaborated with talented minds, worked to fulfill other's wishes and generally had a great time doing it. Still, it sometimes feels like I forget to create simply for the joy of creating art. As a professional artist this is a big problem and sometimes you just have to shake off your constraints, throw out all the rules and try something totally different. This time, I'm designing for me. This time, you'll get to see it all from the inside out. I can't take all the credit. Like with any trackable this one took a lot of help to make it happen. A lot of talented people put in a lot of hours with my pestering, prodding, digging for feedback, fine tuning and generally driving them nuts. Of course, that's how most of my coin designs go so they're sorta used to it, but this one took even more out of them and for that I thank you guys (you know who you are - lol) so much for your help. So here we are again. Another new design to tempt your spirit of love for the geocoin. This time is different though. I've never promised you a geocoin that would be different from anything else out there in the world before. This time I'm confident that I can offer you something no one has ever experienced since the day the geocoin arrived. In 5 days I invite you all to join me in introducing my latest creation to the world of geocaching. Sincerely, Hound for the mods...
