Happy New Year!
Hi there. Remember me? I used to blog here sometimes, back in August. Long time no see, eh?
Most of you will know from reading Jonas’s blog, which we’ve managed to update from the internet cafe once or twice, that we had a spot of internet trouble for the last four months or so. And when I say internet trouble please read no internet at all. And, to tell the truth, it’s been quite invigorating. I’ve gotten a lot of work done. I managed to finish the drawings for our upcoming children’s book (which will probably be released in February 2012) and also did a lot of pictures for the Oneiropolis Compendium. And I’ve learned that losing the internet isn’t the terrifying, life-threatening experience I thought it would be.
The Oneiropolis Compendium has proven to be one of the most fun and amazing things Jonas and I have ever done. In case you don’t know what the Compendium is about, let’s just say that it is an opportunity to get hand-drawn, framed images from me and a beautiful (or silly) story from Jonas while at the same time keeping both of us from starving. And it’s been great, so far. If you want to participate in the Compendium, here’s a link to everything you need to know.
I’ve still got tons of drawings to do, not only for the Compendium but also for an upcoming, as of yet untitled and very much a work-in-progress Lands of Dream game, so I’ll mostly be busy away from the computer, but I’ll try to keep this blog updated regularly from now on.
For now, here are a few linkies to help pass the time:
- There’s a charming new blog from the creator of Letters of Note, called Lists of Note. And even if lists aren’t your thing I urge you to check out this amazing to-do list by Johnny Cash.
- Here’s an xkcd that really made me smile. (Disclaimer: I love Shyamalan’s work, but The Last Airbender could have been better.)
- And here is a nice comic about airplanes by the Oatmeal. (Make sure to read everything to get the really good bits at the end. Oatmeal comics don’t always work for me, but this one is beautiful.)
- Finally, if you have eight seconds of your life to spare for the ultimate knock knock joke, you should have a look at this.
That’s it for tonight.
