Today marks my 100th blog post – which isn’t terribly impressive in the the professional blogging world, but something that I feel was worth mentioning anyway!
I apologize to you, blog, and also to you, readers (all four of you) for my gross absence. I’ve been busy working on new projects, but also, I think I just needed to step away from my old routine for awhile. Today marks not only our centennial post, but also a new age in Action News, this time, we’re getting personal.
Here’s whats in store for Rey-O Action News Go! in the coming weeks and months:
- behind the looking glass – in the future you can expect a better look at the in’s and out’s of my illustration and gallery work. I’ve always documented this stuff but also I’ve been reluctant to publish it here, mostly because I didn’t think anyone would be really interested in it. And by that same token….
- cheeze whiz adds – It should be pretty clear that a lot of my work is personal in nature, although in these posts I have a hard time articulating exactly why. Maybe it’s because I’m embarassed, or again, I didn’t really think folks would be interested in knowing. For better or for worse I’m going to make an effort to let my personality show through these pages, as weird or as boring as it might be.
- keeping regular – Before my exodus, I was blogging at a pretty good clip. I can’t promise that I’ll have something to post daily, or even every week, but what I will say is that Action News Go! is going to be an integrated part of my work. In between a new piece, there might be a word or two about something I read, or a musing, you know, bloggy stuff like that.
- a new hope – This isn’t really a policy, but more of a wish. Ideally I’d like the comments section to be a place where some discussion can be sparked. Of course, for that to happen, people would have to start commenting in the first place, so consider that a double wish.
When I first started Rey-O Action News Go!, I wanted to document my progress on an on going comic. As time went on this blog morphed into a catalog of the work I was producing at school, focusing mostly on illustration and sketchbook stuff. Today I document my gallery efforts as well as illustration projects. Who knows what’s in store in the years to come but I hope that you folks out there on the internets will join me in finding out.
Thanks to everyone who has been supporting me in my endeavours. It goes without saying that any amount of success I run into is directly related to how much you folks out there dig what I do. So Thank You! And I guess I did say it, so…yeah.
