I’m starting to write and illustrate my very first children’s book! It is titled “The Hero’s Guide to Level One“. Here’s a sneak peak (a.k.a. the first three pages! Enjoy!)
Editing has and will be ongoing, so there aren’t the finished pages (I decided to change the ‘guild’ to be a ‘school’, because that’s what it actually is in the story). But it’s going good so far! At least it was once I realized that I drew three buildings in page one and accidentally forgot one when laying out the next two pages. At least I caught my mistake early! Ha!
I had a mild panic attack and a whole lot of depression this week. In fact, I’ve been in bed for the past two days (yesterday I don’t think I even got up to sit at my computer until 5 PM). It’s incredible the amount of energy drain currently going on. And I don’t see my doctor until next Tuesday.
Ugh. Slow medicine is slow.
I’m not sure my upload schedule for the next couple of weeks as I will be adjusting my medication again. Things are not working as they should. But I am alive, and I will write when I can. I’ve been distracting my mind with Starcraft 2 co-op mode and Monster Hunter World, both of which I would love to review.
So yeah. I can barely keep my eyes open right now. And yet my mind is buzzing away, daring me to think about negative things. Sucks.
I have been sick over the past couple of days, and combined with the Fourth of July, I’ve taken some time to rest and get over my head cold/sinus infection. Despite this, I may or may not have burned myself trying to set off four fireworks at once. Happy late Fourth of July, everyone!
Unfortunately, my plans for writing a game review yesterday or today both flew out the door. So instead, I wanted to share a few images of something I’d love to put together someday, even if it would never sell in any meaningful quantity.
Presenting What If Worms Could Whistle: The Coloring Book! Feel free to download, print, and share with your young ‘uns!
I want to redo this one. 😀
I’d love to make it a history lesson.
En taro Tassadar!
I was thinking most of the book would be illustrated in color, but a few pages at the end would be blank for kids to color. I have no idea if anyone would even care to let their kids read and color in a book about big-eyed worms in funny costumes, but it would be fun to try.
Anyway, a regular review is coming up Monday, and it’s one of my favorite PC strategy titles that always calls me back to play again and again. Stay tuned!
True fact: the name Parry (or Perry) is perfect for all duck-billed anythings. Except for Howard the Duck. He’s perfect just the way he… is… *shudder*
Also, don’t tell the kids, but right before I decided to draw Parry, my own Parry in ARK: Survival Evolved was devoured by a swarm of giant ants called titanomyrmas and giant dragonflies called meganeuras. They’re as annoying as their names are tricky to pronounce.
Medications are strange things. While they may solve your problem, they may also create other problems that can make life… just the best. And it’s even better when all of these unintended side-effects arise all at the same time!
Imagine all seven dwarves suddenly existing in one person – plus the ones above. And that’s not even an exaggeration in some cases.
I know most sculptures don’t care how they’re made. Or have feelings. But I can’t help but imagine that this unsure look is the same my own plaster or clay projects would give to me. Oh well. Practice on hapless pieces of granite makes perfect!
He may not be able to beat Superman in an all-out fight, but I think Goku is a better role model for kids. Here’s the bottom line: time and effort are the most important ingredients for greatness. Most of us aren’t super saiyan from day one – it takes work!
