I've been thinking I should give another try at being social in this social network we got here. Knowing people. Talking. I don't know. Might as well start with what's been going up in my life since the last news.
Firstly, I have posted all those Les Mis pictures, and so I've finally continued getting up to date with my current art project
and posting the rest of the pictures here as well. It could use all the love it can get, so go up there if you'd like to see illustrations based on songs. All sorts of songs. Pop songs, indie songs, game and movie soundtracks... there's all sort of stuff.
I have been doing one game(more like one prototype) a month for a while but then this has slipped through my fingers last month. Mostly because I've got vacations and I seem to never be able to actually get going with my own projects during vacations, but also because I've got myself a freelance job. Will get back on that later. Anyway, with 1 Game A Month down I've turned back to working on games as they come. Actually, getting back on my "12 Demos" series is my main priority. Next up: Bejeweled. Just in case you're wondering.
Also, I've got a deal illustrating a book. A book written by a 10-year-old pupil of my mom, actually. A short story about kids getting super powers and fighting evil and it's awesome. Not objectively awesome, but still. It was a fun project, I was paid for it, and I had a crazy deadline that got me sleepless nights and makes me feel like I'm an art professional, finally.
I'm going to post the pictures later, I suppose, because I really like how some of them came up. Especially the cover.
I've got another bout of quick depression, but that's kind of happening twice an year lately. Guess it comes with the anxiety of the modern world and young adultness or something. It's okay, I'm okay, you probably don't care about this, it's just here because it's news. If you do care, thanks a lot. I'm fine.
I've got myself back into reading books. Actual paper books, the ones I've bought so long ago and have been abandoned ever since I got a smartphone and realized I could spend my commuting time reading Cracked instead. Just finished House of Leaves one of these days and holy crap it's haunting and terrifying and awesome. Highly recommend it.
And talking of recommendations, I've been watching and reading and playing some very good stuff and this makes me feel like writing reviews again. Of course, only thing between me and that dream is the same thing between me and most my other projects, that is, that time is a finite resource. Not kidding, if I had a lamp genie and three wishes, my second wish would be to never need to sleep again. (The first one, obviously, would be to have my own soundtrack :V )
And I think that's enough of news for now. Ambitious, for something probably no one will read, but the first step for achieving is not to give up. Or something.
Have a nice day, y'all shiny happy people! o/
