What I'm Up To These Days

The long and short of it is that about two years ago I moved to California and started working for Cryptic Studios. Nowadays I'm a User Interface Artist for Star Trek Online! The whole thing has been a major trip and is extremely challenging. I've decided to sweep the cobwebs off my profile here and start posting a lot of the work I've been doing for STO and for other side projects - I am still doing a lot of official art for the Honor Harrington universe, but that deserves its own post later.

Happy birthday
In a few days, it is going to be a relatively normal day...for most.  But not for you.  For on that day...it will be a good day to revel in the moment that you were cast down upon this Earth, summoned and placed here by the mighty Odin to share your talents and your creativity with all.  Let thee rejoice and enjoy this time, and know you are wished a Happy Birthday!  May many more follow!

Also, Odin sends cake, blessed by King Kong and delivered by Godzilla! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too

Happy Birthday! Party Have your cake and eat it too 
A few days from today, the history books show an entry.  An entry of mystery, and portent, as the great powers came down upon the Earth, and, in accordance with the wishes of the mighty King Kong, granted the world a boon.  That boon was you.  And lo, let it be said to all that you are to be wished a Happy Birthday upon that day, with the most excellent and amazing of cakes to partake in! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too
