Let's talk about Star Wars

 I fu.. freakin' love Star Wars. It is what started my love of both Sci-Fi and Fantasy, being both genres in one. Thanks to my older brother I came into a household where Star Wars was already ever present, leading to my claims that I have been a fan since birth. I recently celebrated my 39th birthday with a small gathering of friends. At which I played a game of the X-Wing Miniatures Game   with my good friend Chris. I've had a collection of the models for some years and have played the odd game here and there but never had much opportunity to play regularly. Chris had never played and was eager to. So we dug out my collection and played a quick game, making a complete hash of rules but having a great time in the process. This one game threw fuel on my Star Wars fire and I have been doing nothing but consuming Star Wars content since, whilst also updating my X-Wing game collection to the current Second Edition and learning all the new rules. (I even watched some of the World C

Reflections on 2021

It seems somewhat cliché to open with a comment on how seemingly quick this past year has passed, but it is an accurate statement. That being said, I don't think this is anything to do with 2021 in particular, lately the years just seem to pass by at a rate of knots, I simply think that it has been more notable this year. I could go on about what a shit-show 2021 has been, but that has been done to death by so many others. So I'm going to look back and reflect on the positives of the last year. Comic Book I self published a comic! Okay, technically that started late 2020 with the publication of FLUX: Chapter One, but 2021 saw the publication of the subsequent three chapters and 2022 will see the continuation. I made my first convention appearances, taking tables at Unleashed Events Sheffield and Chesterfield Comic-Cons, where I tried my best to interact with other humans and promote the comic to a wider audience, face to face. With varying degrees of success! Again, 2022 will h

Finding my feet.

Flux has ended up on the back burner, albeit unintentionally. I've found the rhythm I'd hit slowly losing momentum to the point where I was working on it because I felt obligated to, rather than because I wanted to. This led to things being rushed, focusing purely on getting it finished rather than enjoying the process. I decided to step back from it and not touch it until I actually wanted to, rather than feeling I had to. So far I've not felt the desire to do so. I will eventually, but for now other pastimes have taken my focus. As always, I'm constantly looking for ways to take something I enjoy and turn it into a living, or at least make some extra money on the side of the day job. Although I'd always intended to do some standalone pieces of artwork, I'd never really thought to what end. I few weeks ago I attended the Yorkshire Cosplay Con with my partner Gen, where we proceeded to purchase a fair collection of artwork from the many artist stalls. Adding t
