What’s Been Up – January 2023 Edition

Hello, just wanted to talk about what I’ve been up to lately. After releasing the Jet Dancer game, I’ve been pondering my next move. Unfortunately, a project that I thought had some potential, the “Amari Rift” project ran aground creatively and I put it aside indefinitely. While I don’t have any clear plans, I have…

My thoughts on AI “Art”

AI is definitely a threat to artists. But it’s also not going to go away. People who are using AI instead of hiring an artist are the kind of folks who wouldn’t have been willing to pay your prices anyway. They would have looked for discounts, for free work, for whatever it takes to spend…

Next Up: Amari Rift

I’m proud that I completed Jet Dancer and it’s made a few sales.

Illustrations 20220313
