I’m Still Alive!

Posted in Blog/Update with tags , , , , on August 18, 2014 by Matt


It’s been a while since I posted and thought I’d log in to check out the blog. I’ve pretty much stopped making YouTube videos, and am just working to try and save money. Save for what? Well, not sure. Likely to go back to school. What am I going to take? Who knows!? Your guess is likely as good as mine.

I no longer work at a video game outlet, nor do I work security. I’ve dropped both of those jobs to work (almost) full-time in sales for a large telecommunications corporation. 

Video games are still being played, but less often and I can’t afford to buy them all the time. I’ve even resorted to selling and trading games in. No longer can I afford to collect them. Well, other than on Steam sales, but digital collecting doesn’t count. Right? I am up to 566 games on my Steam library now, according to my Steam profile. 

The temptation to make more videos or do a podcast or two is still there, but the energy and drive are not. Also, with some of the new YouTube copyright detection programs in place, it makes it difficult for me to post anything without getting a claim placed on it. Blah.

Anyway, that is about it for my update. Some games I would recommend people check out are: 

Ziggurat (PC) Steam Early Access. It’s actually a good Early Access game and is quite fun. Check out Jim Sterling’s video below, and be sure to subscribe. He’s a lovely man.

There’s a remake of Shadowgate coming out August 21st. It looks promising, and I am looking forward to dying a lot.

Olliolli is a skateboarding game, but it’s a side-scrolling bundle of challenges. It’s wonderful, but has a tough learning curve. Here’s a GameCrumps video.

I’m pretty sure I’ll just be making game recommendation posts from this point on, but I’m pretty inconsistent. We’ll see what happens.

Comic: Concept Art

I was able to finish another piece today. The work on the new comic is very slow going, but it’ll be worth it in the end. Bare with me!

Comic Update July 20th, 2013

Posted in Blog/Update, Comic on July 20, 2013 by Matt

Hey everyone,

Sorry for the lack of comic content this week. Didn’t get around to doing any sketches worthy of uploading. Did some writing for the story, and background.

I’ll have even more time this coming week to work on stuff, and it will be cooler. That way I can work on stuff and not sweat all over the pages!

More Comic Stuff Next Wednesday!

Posted in Blog/Update, Comic on July 12, 2013 by Matt

I finally got my new schedule and I have Wednesday completely free, so I can finally sit down and work on more comic stuff.

It seems as though my creativity and energy are completely evaporated by the time I get home from work, and sleep has been an issue for me as well. Making this thing is going to take a while.

Regardless, I am looking forward to working on it. Anything I complete will get uploaded immediately.

Here’s one of the first complete drawings I’ve done with the new comic in mind.
