It’s easy for me to get caught up in life’s day-to-day stresses that I end up missing all of the good stuff that happens, and so it seemed worth reflecting on what 2013 meant to me.  A little late to the party, but what the hell!

I’m still trying to figure out what I want and need 2014 to be, but some big takeaways:  more sleep, more art for me and not for the churning masses, more time spent in isolated cabins in the woods.  Less stress.

In the meantime, THANK YOU GUYS!  Thanks for sticking around.  Happy New Year. :)

I just started playing Bioshock (ah, yes.... very late to that party) and I'm hooked. And my brain is twitching at the thought that you designed them. Congrats on being awesome. :D

wow, your year made me all envious and even more set up to do some amazing stuff myself :) that's so awesome. Hope you stay this positive (and not last-panel caught-up-in-the-stress negative) so all my fingers crossed!!

You are the reason I knew that Cyan was doing anything new (and I was RAISED on Myst), and also a reason I went to my first-ever SteamCon. Thanks for posting your work, doing amazing things, and generally making the world a better place. ENJOY 2014!

Good job! You worked super hard this year and accomplished a lot! Just don't forget to set some time for your self, in the videos for the con you looked a little tired. I think only I noticed, so don't worry too much. You're super awesome and inspirational, remember you and your health matters!

It sounds like if you had done just one of those things, you would have still had a pretty fine year. I know I would have.

GOOD FOR YOU! EVEN FOR THE PART THAT SUCKED. IT'S WHY YOU ROCK. I can only imagine my art taking me to through such a fulfilling year.

You did all the things! 
I fully support more art for you (and not just because the art you make for you is usually the art I like the best ::shifty glances:: ).
P.S. :heart:
