Well I’m back. I started this comic almost a year ago, but then I got married, got a new job and started teaching game design at a local college. I’ve been so busy it hurts, but the up side is I’ve had lots of time to think about the direction of this comic. I am really looking forward to making more posts, this is my little slice of heaven, making comics for all of you. Hope I get my old readers back, I do feel pretty bad for jumping ship for a while.
It’s been a long weekend, and this week is going to be a long one too. I’m working on animations for a pretty awesome 2D fighting game for the iPhone. It’s just me doing the work of at least three people, and to make matters worse, Bioshock Infinite just came out. Oh yes, I will be playing lots of that game I can assure you, but I’m also going to have to give up sleep for the next few days to get my work done… Sigh, so much to do, so little time. WISH ME LUCK!
Anyone want to tell me what they’re playing this week?
Today I played some Ni No Kuni, worked for 6 hours, played some Ni No Kuni, worked for another 4 hours, made today’s comic, played some CoD and am now updating this blog… I haven’t seen the light of day once. That and the fact that I woke up at 4am has resulted in a very grumpy George. Anyone wanna email me a hug? Or a faster computer? Or more video games?
Fun fact: When playing an RPG video game, name at least one of your characters “Tom Waits” or “Lady Gaga” (or someone else funny and famous) and every time you level, you’ll get a message like “Tom Waits just reached level 15!” and the game becomes instantly funny.
Well here it is, the very first entry in my web comic/blog/whatever this should be called. I’m glad I finally carved out a little time to sit down and draw this thing, being a freelancer can really absorb your hours!
A little about myself: I’m a freelance artist mostly working in online and mobile games. I animate, illustrate and populate games with art, and it’s the most fun I’ve ever had as a professional! I’m engaged to, quite possibly, the most beautiful girl on the East Coast. She’s a crazy cat lady so I’m taking care of three cats in our little one bedroom apartment… I know, I know.
Well I’m sure I’ll have more to say on other subjects later, so keep an eye on this page if the idle rants of an art geek interest you!
