Well, once again it seems I've spiralled into a time slip between journal updates - more than a year's gone by this time! I do have what I'd consider to be a pretty good excuse though... the best kind of excuse really, in that I've landed a new role - as a FIRST TIME MUM.
My hubby and I made a chibi!!
His name's Hal and he was born in June 2013.
And yep, it's been a real game changer on so many levels. I could go on and on about how amazing it all is but I know how boring that can be when you're not bothered about baby stuff (I've been on the other side myself, I was never a particularly broody type but that's not to say I was never up for being a loving mother). So yeah, now I've got a kid and he's awesome, wook at his squidgy widdle cheeks, yadda yadda... you know how it goes! It's all been said a million times over and more - and now I can confirm it's true for me too. LOL
Seriously, when I'm next properly back into my creative swing (work as normal has become nigh on impossible since the new arrival), I'll let my art do all the talking.
I'm certainly not short of inspiration, but I am constantly short of energy due to having to put the needs of the little'un before all else. It is absolutely draining.
So anyway, the other main thing - Sudeki's out on Steam now!! store.steampowered.com/app/233…
10 years after its original release... darn, that makes me feel that bit more crusty all of a sudden. I spent the best part of 6 years working on that game, on and off. Many of you are most familiar with my work because of Sudeki, being that it must qualify as the biggest project of my professional career thus far.
If you haven't already, you must check out the work of my old team-mate from the Sudeki days -
I think it's safe to say he's earned a bit of a celebrity status around these parts (well, the entire internet really to be fair), his work speaks for itself!
Well, I think that's it from me for now... must get back to taking care of the other biggest project of my life so far (albeit in a small, giggly-widdly-poopy-teethy-whingy package)!
