It’s that time of year…
ife has been incredibly busy as of late, but I have taken steps into animating Bertie already. If I can get this out by Easter then I will be very happy! Of course, you'll be the first to see it.
Fade In What’s up?! It’s been quite some time since I’ve updated on here. Tech issues forced me into a summer hiatus which has ultimately made me think about what I want to do with The Mighty Dragon and exactly what to share on here. For now, the Dragon is resting, it’s on a break…not... Continue Reading →
25,000 milestone – The Mighty Dragon
