Limbo of Recollection by angrymikko
Limbo of Recollection
When you close your eyes and the same memories keep spinning endlessly in your head. Regarding some aspects of my life I have a creepily perfect episodic memory. I store all of my drawing ideas in that space along with my own personal baggage. Right next to my heartbreaks and childhood traumas are the drafts for all the paintings I have yet to finish. That's why I'm not too worried about ever running out of inspiration because that stuff will always be there.

Whether I like it or not. 

This is 3 sumi-e drawings layered on top of each other digitally. 1 main drawing 1 50% opacity for shadows and 1 for highlights. All black ink.

Bad News by angrymikko
Bad News
I saw a nightmare which made me feel like I just woke up with broken bones. This obviously is not a great feeling to have in the morning so I thought the least life could do is give me a picture for the experience. So I got this and me and karma are square again.

I'm sorry for burning everything lately. I don't know why this keeps happening. My muse is playing with matches. I'm washing my hands clean of what it's up to.

My life is messy

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 21, 2014, 1:40 AM
Volume XVI

So... videogames.

I think my whole last year was a complete rollercoaster ride. I don't think I've worked so hard in my life. 
The games I worked on were incredibly different and jumping between polar opposite visual styles. Was like doing 
paint-yoga for 12 months non-stop. 

So where am I now after it's all shipped and on sale?
Feeling very proud because Resogun really is fantastic
and when playing it I can feel all the love we put into it's game design and 
aesthetics. 

Also I'm dead tired... and kind of lost. 

 I spent so much time focused on achieving the goals I set for myself at work that now that I achieved
them there's suddenly this big void of nothing. I think I work pretty well under pressure but when I'm not
"driven" by a goal that I feel passionate about like that I unravel like toilet paper in the wind.

Yes the obvious thing is to focus on next games. However I feel like I  kind of need more substance in my life.
I just have no idea what that might be so my plan is to:

A) give myself a bit time off to just be for once, maybe even reconnect with people I haven't seen in ages
B) explore things I could do with my art.

I feel like doing a small visual project would be fun at this point. When creating a whole world for a game 
you can feel a bit hollow afterwards because it's probably 2 to 3 years of your life that you've spent in a completely
fictional space. Doing something smaller right now would probably feel like less risky for my soul.  
It needs to mend before it can give again. =)



  • Listening to: back to black
  • Watching: the clouds go by
  • Playing: Resogun
  • Eating: On a damn diet for the 3rd month in a row.
  • Drinking: lol, I wish! See above.

There's a new trend of thanking for faves that never happened. 

I fully appreciate a ton of artists and art on deviantart.

However if you want to see who these individuals are please head over to my favourites section. 

This comment space seems unreliable for that.

Many of the thanks for the favs are actually favs that NEVER happened.
