New Year, Birthday, MP3 Players

It's been a while since I've updated my blog. I've been working a lot on a project for RetrowareTV, you might remember from previous posts. I'm almost done with the last project, and I want it to look really nice. Here's a work in progress preview of what I have for them, its supposed to be a Super Nintendo game box, similar to the Contra games:

I'm pretty excited, this design is going to be an 11x17 limited run poster insert for the first run of the RetrowareTV DVDs. I'll post some more pictures soon of everything I've done for them. I can't wait to see all of my work in print in real life as well!

So, my birthday is tomorrow. That's been blowing my mind, especially because I received a letter in the mail about my upcoming 10 year highschool reunion in two years. I just feel like time is slipping out of my fingers. The whole situation has been weirding me out.

Lastly, I broke my wonderful MP3 player. My MP3 player has been my best friend since I bought it on Black Friday. It was a 2GB Sansa Clip. I work alone at night, so other than the voice in my head, its pretty quiet. The MP3 player has been a Godsent though, and I've listened to endless hours of it at work. I've really gotten into podcasts, they are informative and quite long. They have been perfect for work, I can just cook, stock walkin freezers, clean, and more all while listening to something pretty entertaining. But back to the breaking portion of the story. I had just gotten out of my car at work, and the mp3 player slipped out of my pocket and laid in the door jam just as I shut my car door to head into work... CRUNCH... Surprisingly with tape and some clamps, I was able to get it to work again, kind of... But now the audio is dying on it, and it ocassionally resets, so its time to send it out to pasture. So sad, but I want to get a 4gb now, if not larger. I realized how much of an audiophile I am after I bought that 2gb. Within minutes of buying it, I already filled up the disk space. 4gb will be good, anything more will be awesome.

That's it for now. I'll be posting some more sketches soon, I have a few that need to be scanned.
