So after a 6 week hiatus I am back and able to post again! I have been working on an NDA indie video game project doing visual development and concept art. It’s been a load of fun (and a ton of hard work) but unfortunately I won’t be able to post any of that work until the official announcement of the game. (so stay tuned folks!)
