Amazing, I’m back!
I could do the usual and say “real life got in the way”, but that’s bullshit. It’s not like I can’t take off fifteen minutes to write some blather here. Of course, I have NOT created anything since the last time I was around. So the silence hasn’t been completely random.
Y’see, like any artist I have creative ebbs and tides, and mine are particularly strong. So, I painted “Tali”, “Thoughts”, and “Languish”. My three best paintings in less than a month. So, I guess I burned out. I haven’t been able to do shit, but I am finally doing a comeback. I have been doing bunch of tumbnail sketches and some of them look really cool, plus I have been thinking about doing some music.
So, yeah. Give me time, I’m on the road to recovery, or something.
I’ve also been playing a lot of Magic The Gathering Online. Plus Spectromancer, Astral Masters, and Elementals: The Game. Also been longingly looking at my Cthulhu LCG cards and wishing I had people to play it with. As you can deduce, if you know the games, I’ve been in a bit of a card game craze. Not too much. I’ve always liked card games like this. On a counter point, I loathe Poker and the regular deck of cards.
As an artist, it’s also interesting to look at the cards just for the art, nevermind the rules which is also something that I enjoy.
If you are up for a game on Cockatrice or Magic Online you can find me as “straechav” – to your eternal surprise, I’m sure. Word of warning, though, I don’t put a lot of money in to the game so I only play Standard on Magic Online, because every time I start playing on Extended I get raped by some super-expensive deck. I don’t mind Extended, especially since I love Eventide, and it ain’t legal no more.
Anyway, I’ll be back.
