Steampowered Ho!

I've been working my arse off this past week to get ready for SteamPowered. Thus, no blogging. Frankly these past two months have been possibly the busiest I've been in years. I'm really enjoying the momentum but, I admit I'm really looking forward to November with some quiet time to work on new projects and personal illustration rather then just production.

I'll try to edit this post with some preview pictures of SteamPowered merchandize but...chances are not good so, lets just say there will be octopi and koi and ...tiny robots! If you're in Sunnyvale/San Jose, come by and say hi. Bring me a cup of tea, and I'll love you forever.

People keep tagging me.

I don't usually do these, but now I've been tagged twice, and really, I've just had a generally frustrating evening and could use something to distract me before bed. So:

Seven facts about me.
I was tagged, first by thepinkhair and then by Catherinette Rings, go visit there blogs.

At the forefront, I shall say I'm not tagging anyone, just because I like to disobey rules. No that doesn't count as one of the seven facts.

These are the rules:
1. Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blog.
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

And now... seven facts about me:

1) I think best while walking. Frequently I will have thought out whole epic novels in my head, then be unable to string a sentence together when sit down to write it. When thinking I often pace, or pace while juggling. Yes. Juggling.

2) I used to collect marbles. I'm still rather fond of them, but I long ago stopped trying to aquire more.

3) I spent a week in the rainforest in Peru when I was 13. While I was there I carved a toucan, from a freshly cut piece of balsa wood, with a slightly dull pocket knife. That was definitely not the coolest thing about the trip, but it was the random thing that came to mind.

4) At least half of everything I own is orange. I really, really like the color orange.

5) A short animated film of mine played in film festivals in Santa Fe, Nashville, and Boston in 2005. I haven't had time to finish another one since.

6) I play the clarinet.

7) I drink more tea then any other beverage. When I'm working, I always have a cup of tea sitting next to me, and baring when I forget its there and it goes cold, I average probably a cup of tea every hour or so.

Small mysteries revealed. Well not really, but maybe it was more interesting then staring at your wall or watching yet another youtube video?
