Just wanted to post a little update, mainly because I have so many things I want to write about that I stop myself from even starting.
So this is a start.
The last years have been pretty sporadic in upkeep of the blog. Especially the last year, trying to manage being a stay-at-home dad, a freelancer, and a tiny bit bi-polar, has not been particularly easy. But now my son is starting kindergarden(AND NOW HIS UPBRINGING IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE STATE! BWAHAHA! Ehhmmm… no), and so I hope that I can get organized enough to do more of my own projects and show them more regularly. Oh, and I want to write something about bi-polarity and being a parent, cuz`that`s… weird.
Last I wrote something longer, was about meeting Richard Stallman, and some thoughts about open-source. I`m still in the process of moving completely over to open-source, and it is going slow but well. Trying to find the right GNU/Linux for hardware with a lot of propriatary hardware is hard, but it`s getting more and more functional per day. I do all my art in GiMP now, on Ubuntu, and it`s getting second nature. Don`t really miss Photoshop at all, though I do envy people who use a lot newer versions of Photoshop than I did. It looks sexy. Oh well, GiMP will get there in time. Need to do a write up about my first GNU/Linux experiences and start some more diverse installations to find what works best for me.
Projects wise… I`m hoping to restart Free Art Fridays, because that is a good project. I`m hoping to restart Space Monkey, because that is fun. I have no idea whether I will be able to. I want to restart the Wednesday Lies, because I still have things to bitch about. I don`t know if I will be able to do any of it, but keeping fingers crossed for the next few weeks. I need to start the follow up to Pickman`s Model, but am still far from ready. Most likely, the next Lovecraft adaption will feature a lot of New England architecture, at least. And I might do some smaller Lovecraft-stuff before that. And I need to get back to promoting Pickman`s Model, because it still hasn`t really reached the audience I believe exists for it.
I`m spending way too much time on the message forums for the Shadow of the Eternals game, which is doing a Kickstarter right now. I want to blog about that as well, because I`m geeking out and having fun, but the Kickstarter is going… too slow. So maybe it won`t get funded, which would be a crying shame. And I want to blog about that. Will probably be my next blogpost, as time is of the essence.
Anyhow… This was supposed to be a short blogpost, to get me back in spirit. So long for short!
