Major Life Change

Alright. I know I haven't posted in over a year and a half.
And I know the last post stated "Hey - I'm gonna post again. Keep an eye out for new comics."

It was a dirty dirty lie. I realize this. And I sincerely apologize for past transgression. I've been working at National Instruments for the past two years, drinking probably more than I should, and generally not drawing a whole heck of a lot.

But that's all about to change. As the title states, I'm making a "Major Life Change" - and it has nothing to do with my sexual organs.

I've decided to forgo the regular paycheck and return to school - for a degree in Computer Animation. The degree program I'm entering is an accelerated Bachelor's program at Full Sail. This is a school fairly well known in entertainment circles, as they have degrees in Recording Arts, film, computer animation, graphic design, and video game design.

The school is in Orlando, FL - so I'll be picking up shop and heading down there. Classes for my start group start on March 5th - almost exactly 2 years since I started at National Instruments.

Anyway - I plan on keeping this blog up to date with my progress, doodles, and homework (which should be much more interesting than my computer science homework ever was).

I doubt anybody is still checking this blog, but just in case - feel free to drop a comment and let me know.

More to come ... for real this time.

I heard there were new posts and I thought it was all a dream. But now I know it's real, and happiness has returned to my life.

Follow the dream, Dan. I'm looking forward to seeing a return of your comics. You weren't meant to bottle in all the brilliance while being forced to work on LabView.
