A post on interests and procrastinations
I have very little to share today. I’m working a lot with some typography animations which has to be finished by December 2nd. Almost there! But this means I have very few drawings to share, which in itself is very sad (for me at least, haha). Right now I’m working on an animation explaining the different types of fire extinguishers while watching my younger brother play Grand Theft Auto 5 from the corner of my eye. Speaking of five, did you know that there are five different types of fire extinguishers? Probably more, but that’s the limit I’ve set for my animation.
So what have I been up to these last few days…
I started playing Life is Strange by Dontnod Entertainment and Square Enix. Oh my god it is good. Can I be honest? Of course I can, nobody reads this anyways. I don’t find a lot of games that I enjoy playing solo. More often I find myself preferring to watch someone else play while I study the visuals and game mechanics from the passenger seat. But Life is Strange is all mine, it is absolutely thrilling to play. Apart from the amazing storytelling and exciting mechanics, the art direction is just lovely. Check the shots below.
I also painted the upstairs hallway. White, since the room is quite narrow. It looks nice! -ish.
I’ve been listening to audiobooks while working for the past week. I’ve finished A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks, Cop Town by Karin Slaughter, Invisible City by Julia Dahl, and The Martian by Andy Weir. Currently ‘reading’ The Best of Me by Nicholas Sparks.
Yesterday I had a procrastination attack and spent around four hours looking at different mystery geek box subscriptions. I really, really want to get one, but the only ones I found that I wanted had to ship from the U.S., which caused the price incl. shipping to raise above what I was willing to pay. Instead I decided to start reading comics again. I’ve found three I definately want to start reading. Dare Devil (Stan Lee and Bill Everett), The Blacklist (Nicole Phillips), and Mythic (Phil Hester and John McCrea). I might also order some English versions of W.i.t.c.h.. I found them a bit odd in Norwegian.
