As promised, I’m back to announce that my cartoon, Facebook Parents, is done and ready to view on Newgrounds. We shall see how it fares in the end, but the initial reaction is about average. I wasn’t expecting this to become the next End of the World or anything so that’s fine by me. I just wanted to do something fun and simple. Something to take my mind off business and programming, the daily grind… yadda x 3.
It feels good to have started something and have a finished piece of work to show for it (I have far too many incomplete prototypes rotting in my digital graveyard). Even better still, it feels good to be writing about something that I made, for a change. However successful the product may be, I think I’ve forgotten how nice it feels to make something of your own. It’s harder to face the critics than to be one, but I think that’s part of what makes creation so rewarding.
It was recently pointed out to me that my personal presence on my own site is quite lacking. No photo. No bio. No background and most sadly… not much of my own stuff. I need to work on that and starting, finishing and sharing this was a step in that direction.
I’m happy with what I was able to bang out in just a few days work, but more importantly I’m glad to have been reminded of how much fun it is to make stuff and hope I can ride that feeling into getting more of my own work out there. [Or at least get into the habit of sharing more of the stuff I DO finish]
