Work has been just nuts for me lately, which I realize I should be very thankful for. At the end of the night what I usually do is play games on the Amiga or C64 mainly, or visit some BBSes via Wifi modem (either on the A3000 or A1000 these days) to keep in touch with some friends around the country.
Last night, I was just too tired to focus on a puzzle laden game. I needed something to unwind and get to my center of Zen.
So I fired up Deluxe Paint III. Last year, for an art contest
, I created an image of a Delorean flying with wheels up across an 80's synthwave landscape.
I very much enjoyed that exercise. It was relaxing, even though it was quite a bit of work. But it was fun
work, and a great way to burn an hour or two each night until I felt I'd gotten the picture out of my head onto the Amiga's screen as close as I could.
Last night I decided to start working on a new piece. This is not the final work by any stretch, but it's a good start I think. I drew the logo by hand and very much enjoyed creating the red trim highlights and shadow effects. More to come on this one.
What are you all up to?
