I am 12%

That title is a little odd, right? I know when people were occupying wall street chanting "we are the 99%" it got people's attention for awhile. While it didn't shut down the government or make any drastic changes, it was a message of solidarity. Same with my message in the title. Recently I read a study that showed as of 2013 women accounted for 12% of the gaming industry, which is up from the 3% my gender accounted for back in 1989.

The Age Of Nintendo Indie Titles Has Begun!

I'm talking about Nintendo's new indie development program that launched last year!  March 6th is when the first one of us in the program officially launched a game on Nintendo's eShop.  RCMADIAX (Mike as I'll refer to him - it's just easier) launched his first game, BLOK DROP U, on that day and I couldn't be happier for him!  I've been quietly watching his progress since he announced,  just as I've been keeping an eye on other eShop titles yet to launch.  From what I've seen Mike is pretty pleased with his launch and is still working diligently to stay in touch with his community.

Mini art!

I've been doing a lot more with my tablet, and recently I started making what we call "tiles" with it. I generally take about 15 mins each (which isn't super long for a warm up), and they're all drafts. I have just kind of been playing with techniques and seeing what the tablet can do. The majority of these don't have any real theme, they were just free drawings when I was listening to music or had tv going. One of them is a "Who's that Pokemon?" like from the TV show. I bet you can't tell me which one it is...
