Hey guys! A lot's gone on in the past year since I last wrote a journal entry.

For most of the end of last year, I was working overtime (even through Christmas) finishing up on South Park: The Stick of Truth. The game was released in March, and was very well received. I'm happy it's done well and that people are enjoying the game. :)

Currently I'm still at Obsidian, working on a game called Pillars of Eternity. In the past six months, I've been learning a lot about computer animation, and developing skills I hope will continue to serve my career in animation in the future.

Recently I've been thinking a lot about art, and what I do with my free time. I think it's true to some extent that there's no such thing as "I don't have time". I often find myself saying this when it comes to things that I want to do with my free time, but I think what it really comes down to is that I don't make the time. Life happens, and things get busy, and sometimes, I just want to relax. But I've always been the sort of person that can't sit still for long, and I've always got a lot of things going on in the background that I wish I could do. I've tried scheduling out my time to the minute, so I could do a little bit of all those things, but it's rough to live your life in that way.

I guess what it comes down to is that whatever I make time for in my life at the moment is what I consider important, and often, art isn't one of those things. Sometimes I feel really awful about this, because I just can't seem to be like the artists that I admire so much. I'm just not a prolific artist. When I think about art, I often feel a sense of recoil. I don't know if I just get burnt out creatively from work, or if I am just afraid of failure. For years now, art has felt more like a chore than a passion. I'm trying to come to terms with the idea that maybe I'm just not meant to be one of those artists who create amazing things all the time. Maybe I just draw once in a while and that is good enough. Maybe if I come to accept the little things I can do, it will lead to bigger things. I don't know. I guess all I can do is try to be the best that I personally can. And if I can't measure up to that, that's okay, too.
