..And that is where we have to leave the story for awhile. I’d like to give you a date that I’ll be back, but the uncertainty around my mother’s deteriorating health –she’s in hospice now– keeps me from making promises. Please know that I am continuing to work on the comic, I just can’t meet the one page a week deadline right now. I have three pages inked, and I’m laying out more, but the coloring is what takes the most time. Rather than put up a page sporadically, I’d rather wait until I can get back to a regular schedule.
The Walking Dead is still dragging its feet (ouch) and giving us too little forward momentum per episode, but it’s still one of the best series on tv. I tried catching up on Fringe, but even with the return of Mr. Jones I can barely keep my attention focused on it.
For my job I am developing some curriculum for 3D modelers and animators who want to go into games. Games are not really my generation, so I have some catching up to do. I got an xBox for Christmas and a couple of games. The only one I’ve made it all the way through is Bioshock, and let me tell you, it was terrific. For $14, the price of the game used, I got more enjoyment and more emotional involvement than the last ten contemporary horror films I’ve seen. I have Bioshock 2 waiting for me, as well as Dead Rising, but I am really puzzled as to why there are no Lovecraftian games, or so few and so unpopular that I’ve been unable to locate them.
Don’t forget me. I’ll be back as soon as I can.
