First up I'd like to thank everyone who endured my last long journal post and apologise to anyone who found it unpleasant or tedious. This one will be much shorter and sweeter!

Life's been pretty good lately. Hobart's winter wouldn't be anything special to anyone who's used to snow, but to me it's been a novelty. While some parts of the world are going through hell our homegrown terrorists just drive up the mountains, collect snowballs, come down and pelt a populace unable to retaliate. Snowmen have been known to appear in weird times and places too.

One of my local friends told me of tourists coming back to their cars to find kids had buried them in snow. This had me envisioning an alternate Australia that was all low cloud, bare rock and lichen, except for one remote corner which had a beach with real sand the locals used to bury cars.

Creatively I'm pretty much done with In Extremis, which was a response to the worst of Melbourne, and the Occult Creatures/Necromechanics series - which I started back in 2008 - have also lost a lot of their shine. I hope to explore more mature/adult themes in a greatly expanded Scorched Earth series. I'll be paying more attention to the human side of things. My latest post (ten character concepts) is a small taste of things to come.

I'll be revisiting the North Island (ha!) this week but should be posting more work soon.

Until later,

  • Mood: Joy
  • Listening to: Skinny Puppy
  • Reading: Nothing for once
  • Watching: Screens
  • Playing: Nothing
  • Eating: MEAT!
  • Drinking: Effing Coke

Your new profile pic reminds me of that guy from a Winter's Tale.
Albeit a more angry version :lol:
