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.

Oh, and if you see someone from Cantonment, FL buy the Knotwork Chaos Star T-Shirt, that would be me.
Cool! Welcome back. I've missed seeing your stuff. Good luck with your future endeavors.
Nice dude! I'll be looking forward to getting some of those shirts!
Congratulations on throwing off the corporate shackles!
And welcome, neighbor! (From down Pittsburgh-way)
