So what happened


After the last post I did in 2011 (27th of September) it got very quiet on this site. Not that I stopped drawing, but I didn’t bother with updating here. Also, in December I got together with Jan to work on a different project: a small computer game for the Ludum Dare competition. In this competition it’s the goal to complete a game from start to finish within 72 hours (as a team) or 48 hours (as an individual).

After we worked on that and got second place (!), we decided to really finish the game and polish the hell out of it. This is something we have been working on ever since. We also entered it in a different competition for Pokki (top 10 finish). Our little game “Together Alone” in an older version is still there to download for your pleasure. But, we are way beyond that version by now and the new and improved beta can be found at our new site: Qwok Games.

Other stuff. Well, Panacea is probably dead. Kinda ironic with that title. That project was way too ambitious for our own good. Lots of lessons learned however and some of the work is certainly still salvageable for my own pet project (which is probably also too ambitious, but you need a hobby!). I’ll start posting some of the stuff I did last year in the coming week(s). I’ll probably back date that stuff to approximately when I was actually working on it.

Finally!

What started as a small project to get my blog integrated with my portfolio, took something like two months. But with one giant push this sunday to get all content transfered, it’s done. Or at least: for now. I tend to keep on tinkering with the stuff I create when I don’t have a deadline, so I’m sure that will happen here as well.

I haven’t tested it thoroughly, so there might be some stuff going wrong. If so, let me know. Or any other feedback for that matter.

Well, not getting of to a brilliant start this year. I had hoped to finish the new blog design a bit faster and publish everything new there. This drawing is going to be part of the design and that’s not going very fast: I’m working on various other things at the same time right now.

The new blog should be done soon though and can already be found at sphereworks.gwtp.net.

New blog


The last post of the year and most likely on this blog in total. For a while now I’ve wanted to update my portfolio and at the same time integrate this blog with that portfolio site. So over the last few weeks I have been working on just that, a few minutes at a time.

As CMS I’m going to use wordpress and right now I’m tweaking the template. I’m not sure if I will keep this blog or if I’ll copy all this content to the new blog/portfolio. For now the new blog is still very empty but at least there is something there: sphereworks.gwtp.net.

Hapy new year!

A quick update


After that 100th post it all became very quiet. It’s been very busy at work so I decided to take a bit of a sabatical during november. Two weeks of vacation during the beginning of december. If all goes well I can use that time to still get my quota of posts this year.

Some work related stuff for a change. These are two blogs I’ve been working on (designing). The first one (www.ondernemenjuistnu.nl) has been running for close to a year now. After a lot of tweaking from the getgo this layout has been active for a couple months.

The second one has just been launched and is an internal communication blog.

Both are created in wordpress with the second one based on the P2 theme. Many thanks for the technical side of things to my esteemed colleague.

That whole blogging thing seems to be quite popular nowadays… I actually thought that everybody hip and cool was already on board that bandwagon and I was just incredibly late. However I’ve been finding a bunch of great artists blogs that all seem to have started in the last year or so. And therefore a list of my findings:

And some “oldies”:
