How I Self-Published a Book.

Categories: Writing

You’ll notice that doesn’t say how to self-publish a book in general. The way I did it wont apply to the majority of writers who may or may not have some flavor of degree in the subject or plan on having an agent traditionally publish their work. The following explains how I went about writing […]

Design by Committee can be bad, but so is the reverse.

So we’ve all been there, you’re making something for a client and you’re in the final stages of working out exactly what the end product will look like when someone managing it starts with: “Hey, I showed this to my ________ and they said it should have ________.” Suddenly everyone in the room chimes in […]

Not Every Videogame Should Be Easy

Categories: Games

When I was in third grade the most important thing in the world was whether or not you had a Nintendo or a Sega Genesis. Could you play Sonic or Mario? Friends were all upgrading to the Super Nintendo or the Genesis around that time which wasn’t a big deal because I could play those […]

Work Work, Zug Zug

Categories: News

For the last few months, I’ve been actively looking for work. Not just the odd logo design or Facebook banner as I’ve been doing for so long but full-time employment. It’s time for Lizard to start going to daycare/preschool and make some friends, and the boys can handle after school programs. There are a handful […]

The first issue of Dioxazine is almost ready.

Categories: Misprints News, Writing

Getting Started Painting Minis

Categories: Art, Games

So I’ve slowly been working on the vast horde of Reaper Minis we got from the kickstarter earlier this year. I’ve painted maybe three figures before this so I had to go out and get some new brushes and a few washes etc, to get things ready. I even went out and cleaned up/repaired my […]

Backlighting a DMG.

Categories: Electronics, Games

Well well well, it’s been a long time since I’ve opened up an old gameboy and shoved lights into it. I don’t remember why I was even on ebay that day but searching for one thing lead to searching for an OG Nintendo DS console. Those were crazy expensive for what they are, I didn’t […]

Dioxazine: Not quite mag or zine.

Categories: Writing

So back in 2013 or so, I decided to come up with a zine to showcase my photos and drawings. It was called Dioxazine after the type of purple paint we often used in painting class, and given it was an art zine it fit pretty well. Things got busy and the whole little project […]
