..in an incredibly belated journal, that is.
Ah, my goodness. It's great to be back home. I have been all over! Amsterdam! Paris! Peñíscola! Barcelona!
Well, in all fairness the first two were just airport layovers.. nevertheless. I was surrounded in sweet, syrupy european-ness all the way through. I could have sat around in the airport in Paris for hours just listening to the announcements in that swishy language. It's brilliant.
I stayed at a beach house with Pinumbra
, my lovely sister-in-law-to-be, her spaniard Crabman, and of course the ever enticing, enthralling, extraordinary Zombiesmile
. I also met this crazy hairy dribbling individual named Marcks
who tried to take my stuff and kick me in the mouth.
We were joined by a couple thousand mosquitos, which apparently, in Spain, leave monstrous welts on your skin the size of small countries. But we persevered!
We marathon'd movies, tossed around in the bright blue ocean (I emphasize the 'bright blue'ness on account of me being used to the Jersey shore back home, which.. which just wasn't blue. Not really.), ate fine Spanish cuisine, explored a big windy castle full of souvenirs and spontaneous 'toilet areas' for obnoxious tourists' children, and made a game of killing the aforementioned mosquitos every night before bed.
It was a nice trip, but I am quite happy to be here again. It's been a while!
But I've been remiss. I haven't really been keeping you folks updated on the goings-on as of late.
I've recently changed jobs! I'm now working as the creative director at another studio (in Barcelona, incidentally, which was another reason for the trip), where I've been happily toiling away my day hours working on an upcoming dungeon crawler.. and an MMO. It's been pretty wild. I'm incredibly excited about both of these projects, and can't wait for a point when I can show some of the progress being made.
I'm about to move (thankfully, to a bigger place!).. yet again, so I'll probably drop off the face of the planet in the next couple of months.. but I do have quite a few things to do here as well.
I still have that massive poster to make for you guys! I'm about halfway through now, been steadily chipping away at it for weeks now, whenever possible. It's been SO tempting to show bits of it on here, but to be honest I kind of want to wait till the very end and make an absolutely enormous strip, all in one deviation. (If the dA dimensions even allow it at this point, haha.)
Additionally, I'm about to put out a sketchbook. : ) More on that later.
Aaaaaaaaaand.. well. There's.. something else too, but. Well. That can wait for later. Laaater, laaater.. haha. xD It'll be good though. Well. I sure hope.
Anyway! Thanks for sticking around, guys. Take care.
