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. :D
