Where Have I Been? *UPDATED*

Yeah, I kind of dropped off the face of the internet a few years back. I have to say, I've been surprised at the amount of people who still email me to see if I'm alive and encourage me to make more animations. I didn't think I was that big of a deal. So thanks for that.

So, as you can see, I'm alive. I basically just got fed up with animation. I always enjoyed it in certain ways. I love writing and voicing and making music. I loved having a creative outlet and putting what I created out there and getting feedback. It's kind of addictive. But animating is a lot of work too, and it was always a struggle for me. Drawing doesn't come easy to me, and I was getting more ambitious with my animations, and trying to get them done well and in a reasonable amount of time was just frustrating the hell out of me. Plus, running my own website was even more work.

In addition to that, I started to have more of a social life, got a job, and generally had a lot less free time. Then last year I decided to go back to school. I had discovered a love of baking, and I decided to go to culinary school. I'm almost finished with it now, and soon I will have a Baking and Pastry certificate. So, basically, I shifted my creative outlet to making cakes.

I was going to post some pics of cakes I've made here, but now I realize I can't just upload them to the news post. Maybe I'll figure out a way to share them later. Right now, all I have is a pic of something I made in my ice carving class, which is in my profile pic at the top of the page. I hand painted the NG logo and fused it between two pieces of ice. yay!

That's all I got.

I've been busy lately, but I've finally managed to find some time to work on the new animation this week. I got a significant amount done the past couple of days, and I'm working on it a bunch before I go into work tonight.

Really, the animation isn't too hard, because there isn't a lot of it. It's mostly dialogue. Hey, it's what I do. Even so, just drawing things is a challenge for me. But hopefully, I can get all the visual stuff done fairly soon. Then, I'll probably need to add some music, which means I'll have to write some. And I'd like to maybe record a commentary for it too. We'll see how quick I can pull it all together.

I'm Still Alive!...Seriously!

Hey, I just thought I'd make a post about what I'm up to, since, y'know...it's been around 5 months since I've released anything. And I had yet to try out the fancy user page post thingy.

I'm giving the Bad Guys stuff a rest, and I'm working on a new series. One that I think/hope will turn out a lot better than anything else I've done. I've already finished scripting and voicing the first episode, and I'm beginning to animate it. I'm hoping to get it done this month, but I don't know. But at any rate, I'd like to get episodes done on a more regular basis, rather than procrastinating 6 months between animations. Hell, I'm already writing more episodes while working on this one.

Anyways, the new series is sort of a pulp hero/adventure/comedy kind of thing. I don't want to say too much about it yet though. My user page avatar here is a drawing of what the main character will probably look like. That's all I've got for you right now.

So...yeah. Be expecting new stuff; hopefully fairly soon. Now I have to go to work, and after that...titty bar! Gotta love bachelor parties.
