Heya! HAPPY 1/11/11 to everyone!! Emily and I had a "Question du Jour" session last night... No it's not some french pastry that you have in bed with your lover... (Although... hmmmmm.) It means, "Question of the Day." So here's your question du jour: "What has been your proudest moment so far?"
I jumped into Google Alert a few days ago and it's really pretty cool, I have to say. It allows you to monitor the web for interesting new content. You can check it out here. So when I type in something like, "Art Nouveau", it sends me all of the articles, blogs, etc. that talked about Art Nouveau today. It's extremely useful for my business but it's also a HUUUUGE time sink. (Must... resist... the.... shiny.....) As if I didn't already have enough trouble staying focused.
Working from home is hard. That is all.
I've been talking to Steve about some of the rules for his new game called, Gaslight Underground. He has to put on quite the balancing act in order to please so many gamers who would like the game tailored to their style of playing. The questions that come up: How do you please everyone? Can you please everyone? Should you try to please everyone? I say make the rules fair and make the storylines AMAZING. The rules don't matter as much when people leave the game going, "OMG! Who'd have thought that the librarian was actually a dragon stuck in human form?!? See? The adventure is everything! Awwww Yaaaaa.
Creating a fun game for everyone is hard. That is all.
Speaking of Gaslight Underground... let me introduce you to another artist on the GU project - her name is Magpie Bones and not only does she draw extremely well, she also does the website, makes awesome costumes and she sculpts! Magpie's like the Michael Jordan of the art world! You should definitely check out her stuff. (By the way - you can click on her name to go to her portfolio... just sayin'. Do it... Do it now then come back.)
OK now back to me! Here are some line drawings that I've done for the rulebook's interior... I'm kind of pleased with them and junk. :)
