This was a draw-from-observation drawing I did from a photo one weekend, in a private Discord steam with a few Mobius PvE buddies. They loved the result, and gave me a mini-practice to stream when I get better Internet one day. Fun stuff!

I decided to make my own philly cheesesteak recently, considering that it’s hard to get sandwiches or the like where I live. I used this guy’s recipe, minus the worcestershire sauce as I didn’t have any on hand. I also did have to use smaller bread because of the pandemic.

 

It came out pretty tasty, and got to add two different varieties of cheese and mushrooms. My cousin’s fiance approved as well. I’ll need to make these again sometime.

I guess all this isolation has made me self-reflect a lot. Definitely have not been getting bored, that’s for sure.

With forays into long-forgotten files when I was in college, I found a mod I was working on to make Space Empires IV like Space Empires V. This was mostly an image swap to update the graphics, and to give a bunch more stuff to edit.

I’ve also come to realized how the few last fans of that game huddle in a corner and try to grow out, as the creator of their game has vanished off the internet without a trace. Very likely there will be no more Space Empires games, and whatever we create is what remains of that community.

It’s also given me thought of Olympus Champion Shipyards, my brother’s and I fansite for the 3rd iteration of the game. It now lies temporarily defunct due to a port issue, having been coded in SQL by my brother on his server.

That’s a whole few articles in itself, but the warming weather, memories of my past and the urge to touch Space Empires again has made me realize how much it meant to me when I was younger. I believe I’ll try to finish this mod 6 years later, and I also will try to make a repository to the best of my ability with what I have on hand. Time will tell.

I’ve been meaning to do this for awhile now, and had to come up with something. So this is the thank you to my Instagram followers, which is now up to 55 followers. It takes me a long time to get followers, and I greatly value every one of you guys who decide to take time and check out my stuff.

 

So I appreciate it, I really do. I’m glad that my content is interesting to someone out there in the world.

My life’s been changed a little bit, and I’m a bit more busy than usual this month. I’m starting to draw a bit different now, and tonight after being moved by Ori and Will of the Wisps, decided to do a piece on Ku. It was a real cute character to work on, and even got me a Reddit Silver badge. Slowly but surely, I’m getting there.

For the first time this year, took the time to get takeout from my favorite joint in Greeneville. However, my contact wasn’t anywhere to be found; looks like she sold the place to someone different. Nobody even remembered who she was, which definitely let me know something was up.

 

Still, the food tasted as normal. Got my standard fare of scallion chicken, wonton, vegetable lo mein, ginger chicken wings, shrimp and spring rolls. While this will be helping with creative stuff tonight, I do feel sad that one of three people I knew by name in that town is gone, and without warning. Time will tell if I like how the place is run in the future.

This is essentially a joke image, done in the style of a campy retro poster. I’m a bit off mark with the look, but it’s to the point that it carries the joke I think.

 

Long story short, I went to the Knox Asia Festival 2019 with a to-be relative of mine. She sported a 50’s style sundress for the occasion, looking pretty spiffy actually. However she got some curry on it, and somehow stained her slip in the process. Both of us were baffled but found this hilarious, and joked that the curry as some sort of monsters out of those old movies. Hence, the joke was born.

 

It’s something we still laugh about now and then, and I got her permission to put this together. Hope you guys get a laugh out of it.
