Well I haven't updated much here in weeks, and there's a reason for that. Actually a bunch of reasons. I think they're all good ones, though.
I've thrown off the yoke of my corporate masters, though as corporate masters go, they weren't so bad. In other words, I left the Day Job - I don't have any plans for returning to game production at all. That's a seventeen year long story, and I'd really rather do something else now.
So I am doing something else. I've moved to a small town in northeastern Ohio - a harbor town on Lake Erie that's practically on the border with Pennsylvania. I have a house here that's close to 100 years old and which still needs some attention, but it's such a nice, bright, big and open space that I don't mind a bit. I'm sure I'll be working on it for, well, ever.
This is about as much like a California beach town as I could find (afford) and it's funny how like that it is, though it's on a lake, rather than an ocean, and there is that whole Winter thing, and all. But I think there's a quality that harbor towns have which is pretty universal. I like it. Oh! Cool lighthouse, too .
And I'm just finishing up the launch of what I think is an interesting venture at www.sagashirts.com.
There's a sense in which this new T-shirt venture grew out of the time I've spent at DA, in which I've gotten a chance to see who likes some of the Celtic work I've done, what else they like, and what I might do about that. So thanks! I might never have wandered over into this idea without you.
I'm still tinkering with that site and I'll have a lot to do on the marketing front; I have a print ad coming out in early August and I'll be doing this and that online for weeks, I'm sure.
Apart from Saga Shirts, I have a couple of freelance gigs and some other ideas for ways to sell my own work online, and, well, I now have the time to do that. I'm awfully happy overall.
As far as work on DA goes, I've been pretty wrapped up in these knotwork t-shirt designs but I also have a rough beginning for another retro-futuristic piece, and I guess in any way it seems appropriate I might post some of this new work, too - though it's on the commercial side, of course.
Anyway I'm back, or at least more back than I was . We now return to our scheduled programming.
