I typed the below a week ago, and have only just got around to posting it. More to follow!

Wow, it’s hard to believe I’ve posted so little over the last twelve months. Have I been exponentially busier than I was in the previous twelve months? I guess things have been somewhat hairier than they used to be, but it’s all a massive learning curve I continue to climb in the heady world of 3d modelling. Fact is though, 2D is, and always will be, my first love. I wish I could say that I’ve been concentrating on that… but sadly, I can’t.

So anyway, I’m posting in a quiet patch, sitting here at my desk at work (and yes I did sign out, if anyone from the management team happens to be reading this), in the only place I have that I can actually put my Macbook in front of my main monitor and work in a sensible position. At home I have to balance it on the corner of the Hubster’s desk. Although using it on my drawing board is rather fun, and also next to the window. Which is nice.

I do have a little something to say, which I should have really done by now, but it’s been a pretty traumatic week so I needed a quiet patch to collect my thoughts and blog about it. A couple of weeks ago I received an email via the site, inviting me to attend a special preview of 300. Needless to say the idea of getting to see what is probably a keenly anticipated comic book adaptation, with the director in attendance for a Q&A after the screening was …well.. it would’ve been rude not to wouldn’t it?

So watch this space in the next couple of days, for not one but two (!) reviews. From myself, a review written from the perspective of a person who isn’t really that enamoured of Frank Miller’s work, and not a fan of the Sin City movie. And the other from the elusive Darcy, who is most definitely a Miller fan, though lets be honest, the man is a walking comics encyclopedia.

Back soon, with thrilling tale of what it’s like to be stuffed into the basement of a “Luxury West End Cinema” with an assortment of Blogerati, wine and a vivid story of men with huge….

…spears.
