avoiding burnout

Been working a lot these days.. and I think I was under a prolonged burnout working on two jobs. I have another day or two before it gets crazy again.
But I found this interesting article about freelancing.

Patapon DEMO

During Valentines a demo of Patapon for the psp was released. What was I doing... up to my neck in work.. No chocolates, no romantic evening, just work work work.
But I managed to have a moment of rest. And took a evening off.
Usually I hate rhythm games. I have no beat.. its just the person I am. But I love the visuals. Fantastic. It's as alluring as Loco Roco was for me.

I had herd the visuals was from a french artists named Rolito (as soon as I find his personal website I'll post it here). But if you own a psp I say get it!!!! its coming out end of this month.

Rolito's website can be found here
Rolito Land

Get Loco Roco too if you don't own that.
Sigh... back to work.

Sketches from my Moleskine

Here are a series of sketches scanned from my moleskin book. I did these while I was traveling through asia a month ago. I would start these with little or absolutely no intention at all except to illustrate whatever came to be presented in my imagination. If I saw a robot, I would draw it. If I saw my little pony, yeah I would draw that too. In a dimly lit room, I would close my eyes and wait until I could see a visual in all the darkness. The first image that appeared, I would then draw and record it. Then I would move to the next frame. Each frame was created without attachment to the previous or in anticipation of the next. What occured here was a sequence that created itself, or cocreated with me. This is a great exercise in letting go, and just going with the flow. You may be pleasantly surprised as I was. Try it!
