Obligatory Guilt Post

I never post anything. And the worst of it is that I'm not witty enough to make up for it! If I could only write something brilliant and hilarious, I am certain that my legions of adoring blog fans (by which I mean my husband, because no one reads a blog that never gets updated, but I plan on forcing him to read it because THAT'S WHAT YOU SIGNED UP FOR WHEN YOU MARRIED ME) would instantly forgive my apparent allergy to self-promotion.

Alas, it is not to be. But because I keep discovering other blogs whose owners DO update them regularly, I've managed to guilt myself into creating a post.... devoid of new artwork, of course, but a post nonetheless! Here's an image to break up this giant text block!

You see, I work at Rivet Games in San Francisco (that's me on the homepage in the matchy-matchy brown polka dots), where I am busily creating artwork for a rockin' new game with a team of talented folk.  I draw at work every day.... which means that when I get home at the end of the day, I want to do anything but draw. Maybe I'm just not passionate enough about art, or maybe I have ADHD, but in any case, after 6pm, I can usually be found reading my Kindle (which I love, adore, and worship, wondering where it has been all my life).

At some point in the near-ish future, the game will launch and I will start posting art and animation from it (or not, considering my track record), and my husband (who will STILL be the only person reading this blog) will oooh and aaah over how great it is.  Meantime, I'm going to hang onto this motivational guilt for all it's worth, and try to draw something worthy or write something witty to put on the blog ASAP.  Which could be, you know, next year.  But hopefully sooner. :)

  1. He definitely isn't the only person that reads your blog.

    I know where you're coming from with the not feeling motivated to do art after a certain point. That and there are so many good books and video games for me to enjoy. How can I possibly keep drawing when I need to entertain myself?

    I look forward to more posts ;)
