Summer BREAK! Hey, I can have one too.on June 13, 2011 at 6:44 am
Hey buddy, why so quiet lately, hm?
With the abundant responsibilities laid out before me at this time, one of my many projects must either be put on hold, or suffer in quality. Twilight Monk is my passion, and I have chosen to take the summer off to apply script changes, new scenes, and future script planning to ensure its quality. I also want to chill on the beach and look at girls in bikinis. Technically speaking, Twilight Monk is my 3rd job, and done as a pleasure as well as a hobby. You can look forward to a greater version of the book when it returns later this year.
As many of you know, I work as a Concept Artist in the video game industry. This industry is notorious for having long hours and lots of overtime work. My work at Blizzard and my quality standard are my highest priorities.
Over the past few months, I’ve been completing the final print production of a collection of my old comic book work called CreeD: Omnichronos. This book is 508 pages and will be published and released by IDW in August. I had to reconstruct some lettering, fix spelling errors, and add a 30+ page sketchbook collection to the book. The publication looks fantastic, and I can assure you that I personally handled all of the graphic design and cleanup myself with over 150+ hours of production going into its reconstruction.
In other CreeD news, I’m working with a Literary Manager to shop CreeD around to film studios. I feel confident that this will be a worthwhile venture, but it requires that a lot more work be done.
Additionally, I’ve been working on a flash game with a friend of mine. I cannot yet release details of the game yet, but it’ll be free to play when its ready, and Ill post more about it later.
My personal life has gone through some major changes as well, and my time and energy has been spread even thinner. Twilight Monk is my baby, and I love this project like a child. In the midst of all of these mounting responsibilities… I’m concerned that the quality of the product has begun to slip, and I cant let that happen.
I want to assure you all that I remain committed to Twilight Monk and it’s development. We are just getting started, and there WILL BE MORE coming in the future. By my estimates, my schedule should allow for more content to be released this fall. But I won’t start releasing more pages until I feel confident that the work is ready to show. My intention is to create something that is not disposable, something that speaks to the heart, and stands apart as a truly unique experience. When Twilight Monk is complete, it will be the kind of book that you will want to share with others, and cherish long after you’ve thrown out your old collection. At least… that is my goal.
