Changes are afoot…

Forgive me dear readers (if any of you still read this, of course). I have been a very poor blogger of late (well, for the last 4 months) and whilst I’d like to list off a multitude of excuses why (some of them legit, I assure you), I just won’t. Suffice to say, change has made its way forcefully into my life once again and just how do I react to this change? Like a seasoned veteran, standing in the way of adversity with my head held high ready for whatever life may bring? Oh, noooooo haha not at all. Instead, I react like a newborn babe discovering that I can scream really really loudly if I do a certain thing with my throat and my mouth and my voice box.

If I could scream loudly, I would but my voice has never properly recovered from a very bad case of the flu I had a month or so back and well, yeah, that would suck so I won’t. Instead I take to the computer, turn it on, look over WordPress in one of the many tabs I have open in my browser and I cry my heart out in words. And sorry to say this but I think I’ll be doing this a lot more often.

So I’m not going to use this blog just for Star Wars. I am going to use this blog for anything I want or feel like saying, just like I am now. I don’t know why I was afraid to do that before. I guess I wanted to attract readers so badly, I was willing to silence that part of myself that desperately needed to be heard, even if I am only writing this for myself. I ask you, is that not what matters most?

I think so. In fact, I’m already feeling better just writing this little, wee bit of crap on my blog in the stratoshpere of “nobody really gives a damn” otherwise known as the internet. And somehow, I still feel better than I would have had I not blogged today.

So maybe tomorrow I’ll find out if I still have a day job… oh yeah, that is one of the things on my mind lately. Also, my mother who is disabled had a really bad fall this week and I was so worried about losing my job that I didn’t spend the day looking after her and dragged my ass to work instead. And now, I feel like the most horrible person on earth for doing that. BECAUSE IT’S NOT IMPORTANT. A job is just a job, family are family – family are all that matters and I acted like an idiot. And now I feel pretty bad again so I’m just going to like, stop now.

Kylo Ren and Darth Vader – Queue the Motion Art please :)

Fell in love with both of these images when I saw them, especially the piece by Helen Shin – it’s nothing short of amazing… it needed to be animated!

And two of my favourite characters in the Star Wars universe together! Darth Vader and grandson, heir apparent, all-round bad boy Kylo Ren

Luke The Last Jedi and something extra

This is “Luke The Last Jedi” by 800lbProductions – I saw this picture and couldn’t resist adding some animation to it, it’s just awesome. This is one huge a55 file though, geez – it took me ages to add the animation and of course after I was done, it ended up being a 70 meg file lol! Looking at the finished product, it was well worth it.

And something non Star Wars related, I’ve started adding animation to other things outside of Star Wars and thought I would blog about it here. There are some really beautiful Movie Posters out there and when I saw this one,  for The Doors (1991), I had to add something to it:
