Well that was a long wait

So it has been a while since I have posted on the blog. A large part of that has to do with not really having a lot of time for any games or hobby related activity. I have been trying to do more in the past month but compared to June I have not really... Continue Reading →

An update

So its been a while since I posted and also a while since I was able to game regularly. I've picked up some evening shifts at Sentry Box as well as doing demos for the store so my available free time has been cut rather dramatically. I have been doing a bit of painting and... Continue Reading →

Fun Illustrator “feature”
