"The basic need of the creator is independence. The reasoning mind cannot work under any form of compulsion. It cannot be curbed, sacrificed or surbordinated to any consideration whatsoever. It demands total independence in function and in motive. To a creator, all relations with men are secondary."
- Ayn Rand
Star Tropics was awesome - that's a flattering comparison.
I'm still semi-active, but I've mostly been keeping to myself artistically. Actually doing a whole bunch of non-art related things. That's gonna have to change soon, as the projects that I'm working on will eventually need visuals. What about you?
