Oh man, it’s been ages since I updated my blog and I blame Twitter!
I thought I was keeping everyone clued in with my micro 140 character updates, but with Twitter gold such as “OMFG #qanda” and “I had an undercut in 94!” it seems less and less likely that any of you know exactly what I’m upto (apart from screaming at ABC’s Q&A once week.)
FORMation Alliance’s new iPhone game KERN [App Store] is a bit of a curiousity, but one that seems certain to build a dedicated fan base amongst designers. The gameplay involves properly aligning a letter into its proper place in a specific word and font:
Moleskine AND Helvetica AND the white cross = Multiple Nerd-gasims!
It’s been pretty busy in the land of Kat recently, and the reasons are shitting me no end. The latest of which is having to move house. It wasn’t my decision to have to move, rather it was the decision of my half sane hosemate moving out and leaving me with the fully insane housemate… I didn’t want to do that so I got packing. Sticking around to be domestic slave to an inept misogonyst is not my idea of fun.
I’m now moving into the rather quirky and ancient house of Sean (Bucket’o'Thought ). Think old Australian style terrace house that’s showing its age. They say change is better than a holiday so I’m looking forward to it. (Give me a holiday too please!)
During this drama (and a few others) I’ve been unable to do any drawing and I’m in danger of getting my arse kicked by many people – Villain Store is one of them! I’m hoping that the break will give me super human powers to draw quicker than I usually do.
In the lead up to Christmas keep an eye out for new work, a few additions to the online shop and many, many more rants!
For the really bad days, for the days when you want to quit, when you feel like everything you do is shit, when you feel your self-esteem plummet, when you decide that you would rather wait tables for a living, when you start to think you will never make a living making art, when you are working on something and feel like you hate it more than you’ve ever hated anything in your life, when someone makes an offhand remark about your work and afterwards you feel dejected, when you wish you had gone to school for accounting, when you start to believe that maybe your family was right, when you want to lie in bed for a month and eat chips.
