I wish I had some interesting things to say here, but I really don't right now! I've been staying much busier than I'd like to be, and I don't foresee much changing with my schedule before the semester ends. I wish I could dedicate more time to comics, but that just isn't very realistic at the moment. Every day I fantasize about what life would be like if I could sit around and draw comics all day. Then I briefly consider the implications of an authentic existence torn asunder from the metanarratives that mankind weaves into being, before ultimately reflecting upon the deliciousness of Dorito tacos
and drifting to sleep.
I'm tossing up a new link to GeekDraw
, a blog that I stumbled across recently and started checking in on every now and then. If you're into comics and illustration, I recommend giving it a look. There's a lot of art up there from a bunch of different people, showcasing a huge variety of unique styles and ideas.
Also, even though there are only like two days left on this, I want to throw up a link to Double Fine's Kickstarter
page. They've been raising money to fund the creation of a new point-and-click adventure game, and by giving them some of your money, you can get a bunch of cool prizes (including the game when it comes out). Aside from the genre, no information about the game has been presented--but coming from such fine minds as Tim Schafer's (of Grim Fandango
, Day of the Tentacle
, and Psychonauts
fame [among several other fine titles]) and Ron Gilbert's (of Maniac Mansion
and the Monkey Island
games fame), it's hard to imagine that the game will fall short of extraordinary. While initially asking for $400,000, they quickly broke the $2 million mark, and it's still going--with the extra money being spent to make the game even better. There are more details (and some videos from Double Fine
) on the Kickstarter page. I think that what they're doing here is really interesting, but I'm not going to go into that now.
Finally, I want to point out that I've gotten really behind on emails. I've got some messages that I haven't replied to yet, but I will be getting to that soon, and I apologize for the delay. I'm not avoiding you because I think you smell weird or anything. Promise. And since I'll be working to catch up with emails, now is as good a time as any to write to me
and say hi. If you do, I'll write some words back at you. It's like playing catch with your dad, except completely different.
