It has been over 3 months since I last wrote one of these journal-y things, so I think it's about time for an update.
For the last couple of months life has just been plodding along with nothing new really to report. Work has kept me busy, and Scout related stuff has kept me busier. It's now less than a week until a major Scout camp, so currently every moment of my free time is being consumed by some sort of preparation work.
Following the camp, life will hopefully calm down a little. That is at least until the end of August where I've now booked flights over to see my sister and new baby niece in America. It's been a few years since I was last over, so I'm looking forward to revisiting a few places, and of course meeting my niece who I've so far only seen on Skype.
I can't say my plans currently extend much past the beginning of September, but I can imagine life will start to slow down again and I may actually get some time to work on some art.
I haven't had the chance to even think about making some emotes since the beginning of the year, as proved by the fact my animation program hasn't even been installed since my computer was wiped.
However, things do keep happening in the emote world, so I'll give a couple of shout outs:
NaNoEmo is hosting its annual Visual Purpose event, encouraging artists to make emotes which are designed purely to be looked at. I would really like to be taking part, but simply can't spare the time right now. But if that's something that interests you, check it out.
With life being so busy, its been fantastic to see a steady stream of emotes appear in my inbox as they are posted to TheEmoticonGallery. If you are fed up of seeing spam in the gallery, or want a bitesized view of new art work, definitely check the group out.
That's about all for now. How have all of you been? Anything interesting in your lives?
And if you've made it this far, let me know what your favourite flavour of ice cream is!
