Hey everyone,

Ahhhh Front Mission on the super famicom, how I love you so... Anyway ,it's been kinda slow on my side when it comes to art as most of you have probably noticed by now. SO many things are to blame for this, some real life issues that are now behind me, thank goodness, concerning my passport renewal for which I had to go to Paris with my 3 bros, this heat that is slowly brewing and most of all there is simply the fact that I am in a gaming phase right now.

That's usually how it goes for me, either I game most of the time or I draw most of the time. In the beginning (about a month ago) I was easily able to force myself to draw here and there but things have been crazy at work lately, I've been driving over hours through the roof.
This last part really is killing it for me. When I come home I just want to relax and not focus at all and gaming offers me that a lot more than drawing does. Especially with Mario Kart 8 having just been released. Then there is the fact that we are at E3's doorstep and that's getting me super hyped, mostly I hope to see some more Zelda and Hyrule Warriors, I can't WAIT for that game!

These over hours are good for me though, a lot of money has come in that we were able to spend on long over due items for the apartment such as cabinets in the bathroom and a fancy new scanner/printer. It won't be long before I start scanning some old pictures of mine, card collections and video game covers and some of that might even be uploaded to dA here, filling up the gaps between art a bit.

The sad thing is that I do have several artworks I have been working on that are really close to being finished but I don't want to rush them so they have just been cooking about. These long hours I am doing now should end soon though so time for drawing will free itself soon and before you know it I am right back on track again.
