No you guys seriously, life is awesome? I was placed as art lead on our top-priority project at work and it's been absolutely awesome. The entire project so far has basically been one big crunch (for me at least) to push alpha in mid-October, so I've been working late and working on weekends and couldn't be having a better time because my team is awesome and the average age on the project is like 25 and it's so fun. We also hired two contract artists, (but that doesn't mean we're not still looking!) and they're AMAZINGly talented, I'm SO excited for this project to go live! UNFORTUNATELY, I can't say anything about it, all I can say is that it will not be available to the general public until the next release in like May or something. But I'll probably keep you guys posted because... I don't have anyone else to talk to except the few people who still read my dA journals (thank you, loyal watchers.)
I've also been busy with housework because one day every two weeks I'll be like, 'I HAVE TO DIG' and do a day's worth of yard work and it's never enough but then I leave it partially worked-on and never finished for weeks until I go back to it. Also, been decorating and stuff. Want to know how much of a stupid decorating person I've become? I have a glass-top, iron patio table from the 50's or 60's as my dining room table but only have 3 chairs, and I went to the thrift store the other day AND THERE WERE FOUR PERFECTLY MATCHING CHAIRS, TWO WITH ARMS, I ALMOST STARTED TO CRY I COULDN'T EVEN BELIEVE IT and then I sat in them to claim them and bought them and now I have too many chairs.
I wish I had more updates, but that's all really. Chairs and work. Cool.
