Train Sketch: spiderp! Not so scary in...
staedtlers on the first hack sunday.
Copic Marker Love
& now, I have slightly better documented versions of the pieces I worked on last long weekend. See the full gallery on Posterous This is based on the well known promo image for Autumn’s Concerto (下一站幸福), aka the best drama ever. (Unfortunately, I liked it so much it ruined anything I watched after it.. so lo’ and behold: high standards and more free time.) And...
Today's train sketch best. The boy and the spider.
sketchpost: the greatest insult
I’ve been told to improve many, many times. And it’s always been true. I’m still paying my dues, learning, improving. I think I’ll always be on some front.  However, I was once delivered this great insult: You lack depth.  I know I spend tons of time sketching, sewing, doing things which do not contribute directly to my career. Hell, it’s not even...
Musing on Recent Illustrations

Jack of Trades
Sizable Copic collection from the glory days. The sad reality is it’s very hard to be very good at everything. Unfortunately, lots are cursed with this blessing of being supremely interested in related, but rather different, fields. (I think lots are, or at least, I am.) There is only so much time to develop a true expertise, so choosing what to spend it on is vital. I’m writing...
Documenting the Dust Bunnies game, ch 1.
I’ve got my idea. Now it’s all about the execution. Just add ears. Since I’m not a strong coder, I’ve decided to make this a grid-based game, which should immensely simplify the game mechanics and logic magic that needs to happen on the backside. This way, I can focus on the front - my strength. This might put the game on the map, despite the simplicity of the...
