Fuck beans it's been a while since I wrote one of these, so let's have a little chitty chatty hey sweet pea?
fonts for the memories
Been working on commercial fonts that I have started to work into designs as well as tutor a friend into the process.
Making my own custom fonts is super useful for shirt designs and it is obvious a useful skill for other works I make like games.
It takes a stupid amount of time, but at the same time is a rapid process compared to days of old when letters were individually carved into dry turds.
Shirt off me back
I've been design shirts again recently because I actually enjoy it a fair bit. Being doing stuff close to video gaming while still staying legal, although that doesn't stop the wank developers throwing their big dick about and getting stuff taken down. I'm veering towards doing my own stuff as well as keeping an eye on printing my own stuff so as to fuck would be arseholes out of the equation.
Going to take a bit of work but needs mustard and all that what what. Run your fat fucking eyes over some of my gear here.
Games, Games, Games
Been working on a little game and I think I've broke its back now so I can free up some time to squeeze in other stuff as well.
Originally I thought I could work on two projects at once, but it turns out the "tiny game" I was going to make needed a fuck load of work to make something worth while - who'd have thunk?
Won't say too much other than it's a niche kind of thing that's not really weird but still niche.
My plan is to make something that is simple to play with a lot of replay value - which turns out is a fucking huge undertaking.
I'll chat and promote it more nearer its completion.
Write thing to say
I've been writing as of late, as I've been getting a bit extra free time. This means I'll spew more shit out of my arse in word form for you dirt bag flies to congregate around and feed on like the shit attracted shit eaters you are (said with love of course).
At the moment I thought I'd pass comments on topics that catch my beady little eyes, but we'll see what it develops into.
I have been working on a short book this year so need to blow the dust off that and finish the fucker, but more on that when it's done.
The great thing about writing is it takes a fraction of the time to create something interesting, the downside is the world is now largely populated with fucknuts who want everything in video format - so swings and roundabouts.
Video killed the radio star
I've been meaning to make some videos, but in all honesty they take too long and I have other things to do. When I get time I think I'll do more stuff that is exclusive to this site with the occasional thing on YouTube.
Site, Site, baby
The site is growing in size and traffic, with the opposite being true on YouTube. I also tend to get better engagement on my own website, with better conversions through to things I'm selling.
It would appear a tiny targeted audience is better than a large YouTube audience. In fact viewers on YouTube have become as useful as a flaccid penis in the Playboy mansion.
Going forward I think it makes sense to produce more entertainment through this site to build my portfolio and attract visitors, with the occasional YouTube video.
So the gardening bug bit me this year, a long with the pirate bug the little bastard (actual pirate bug, not me promoting e-theft) and I've been doing that a fair bit.
Gardening is super fucking awesome but a bit detailed to go into here in a little catch me up
Going to wrap up and tell you I'll try to avoid there being such a big gap in the updates but in reality who the fuck knows - not me.
