How are you all doing? Good, I hope!
I'm planning this year to do at least ONE monthly update, and I would like also to regularly upload art I've been working on. That will happen soon (the art part), but here is the update:
Life is Not Bad™ and I have been sorta chugging along the past year, setting some various plans in motion as much as I can when everything is a bit limited in many ways. It is what it is, fingers crossed this year will be dramatically easier and more freeing than last year.
Exciting (to me) developments:
•I have had PLENTY of time to make art in 2020, and I'm hoping that this set a precedence for this year, too, even if things change significantly. I've been bad at sharing my work but that is mainly due to my poor attention span. Maybe I should set reminders on my phone, eh?
•One of my jobs is working as a production assistant at a Public Access TV station, and with that has come many creative ventures in video work – with some animation sprinkled in. I've been starting to make my own video walk series, which I'll link here soon, and have delved even further into video-making and video editing. All of this is fun and dandy and I'm hoping it'll open new doors for content I make further down the line.
•In addition to my job realm is the potential for sound work – podcasts, voiceover work (less of that on my end, since I have no experience with it other than recording it) and music. I don't consider myself a musician by any means, but I do have equipment for making music and would really really love to dive deeper into that world this year. Sound design is important in my other work, so I think it'll be good for me.
...and that pretty much sums up what I can think of for now. I have some business ventures underway, which I'm planning to make a post about eventually, but I want to make it worthwhile. I'm also developing a website, but it isn't really remarkable at the moment and not worth sharing.
To wrap this up: I hope you are all finding yourself well in this New Year, and I hope to connect better with the Newgrounds community this year more than ever. Also, here is a squirrel:
