    Hey everyone, Mark here from Canada. Thought I would say hello first before I started posting.

    A little about me. I live in Toronto, I currently work at a video game studio as a 3D artist, which I've become to despise over the past couple years, actually I started hating it about 6-8 months after starting. I realized very quickly that I would never be happy working for anyone, so I had to figure out a way to escape the rat race. Which led me to entrepreneurship.

    So I started an online art business called Pixel Prints, which went live a couple years ago, took me about 8 months to get it up. Currently, it's about 90% automated. I just fullfil orders, and update the artwork every so often. This business makes money, but not enough money. So I decided to let it run on its own for awhile, and focus on another venture.

    So I decided to start a sunglasses company with my co-founder. It's called 8 Eyewear.

    I'll start a thread somewhere later on if anyone is interested in seeing what we have so far, and show some images of our first designs.

    Anywho, I look forward to seeing what this forum has goin on.

    Cheers
