Things have changed a lot in the past few months because I’m working on larger projects with long time lines and levels of secrecy. The past 2 months I’ve been on a project, an app for a TV show, and I literally did like 100 illustrations for it. It’s uncertain when this app will launch at this point, so I don’t have any new artwork I can share.
For the first time in about 10 years I have real days off. I’m realizing now how important they are! Sunken Castles has given me the ability to draw all day for a living (finally!), so when I get off work I feel fulfilled. Before I would always have deadlines or I’d be working on my illustration career in any off time I had from my day job. I’m feeling much more relaxed and healthy 🙂
Not really knowing what to DO with a days off is another issue. I’ve been studying 3D and loving it, as well as animation. And I’ve been playing the Scott Pilgrim game. I was blown away by the movie, and the game is extremely fun.
I’m going to be studying this pixel art retro game style for an upcoming Sunken Castles game. It’s daunting to have to do all the artwork and animation for an entire video game! Starting your own company is rough, but I still think it’s worth it.
