Time for an update, methinks? There's not much on the art/design front to speak off since my last flurry of activity, but I'm very happy with the reception some of my recent work has got. So thanks very much for your support! I'm hoping to put some time aside soon for some more ideas I have, in between job hunting, but I make no promises, haha.
Anyway, onto more interesting happenings. Unless you don't care for music, in which case skip along past this part whilst I ramble. Last week I went down to London with my brother for a couple of days. We saw Franz Ferdinand live at the Electric Brixton on the Tuesday, and they were great as always. It was my third time seeing them live, and I'm loving their new album. Took its time in coming out, but I'm happy with it! Then on the Wednesday night, we saw Greenday at the Brixton O2 Academy. I'm a fan of them, of course, but I was even more happy when it turned out Frank Turner was supporting. They were both fantastic, and it was well worth going. Plus Greenday played the whole of Dookie!
The last few days I went up with my parents to visit my grandparents in Blackpool, which we do quite a lot. But what was better than usual was my success on the arcades. I won on pacman smash air hockey, turned a profit on the 2p machines (although we still put them all back in, naturally), and to top it off I won this little fellow on the camel races.
No, I don't know either. Also managed to pick up a few PS2 games on the cheap that I've been wanting to play, so no complaints there!
And on the subject of videogames, I played through Remember Me recently. Great game, I loved it. One for the sci-fi fans, anyway. Perhaps not the most refined gameplay, but I enjoyed it, and it was certainly worth it for the interesting story and incredibly well-realised world. I've also pre-ordered Killer Is Dead, the new Suda 51 game which is out this Friday, so pretty hype for that. And finally, I am now (after probably what most people would consider too long) the owner of a smartphone. My brother won it, and gave it to me, which was very kind of him. No complaints here! It means I've been playing Earthbound recently (an old SNES rpg for those who don't know), and it's kind of great. Should have played it a long time ago!
Well, that's my rambling over. Hope you don't feel like your time was too wasted, haha. See you around!Also, I tried to make my own journalskin. It's probably gone wrong somewhere. But there we go
