Something Old…

I recently found myself gabbing with friends about an old project I worked on years ago: a roleplaying game that I helped conceive, write and illustrate, based on a fictional cosmology that I’d dreamt up back in my school days.

It got me thinking about whether the book was available anywhere, and I was amazed to find that it still has a listing at Amazon.com. It got poor reviews there, I must confess, and not entirely undeservedly so. Sadly, it was a rushed affair, with Rod and I taking on too much work in too little time for no money. In the end, it came out as a failed experiment, and I’ve never completely gotten over it.

One thing I did last year, while in a similar mood, was create a vector version of my classic LINK logo. However, I was surprised to find I hadn’t posted it in the CvS gallery. I probably did more or less what I’m doing now, blogging about it and forgetting to put it where folks need to see it. Anyway, here’s what the basic LINK logo looks like these days:

The basic design can and has been reused a number of times in different simulated mediums to suit the genres it was matched to. I’m happy to say that it is a very versatile piece of design work, which I created way back in 1993, long before my first home computer. So often, the old fashioned way is still the best way to come up with new and interesting ideas.

Well, that’s it for show and tell today. Thanks for joining me.

Don't be shy. Tell me what you really think, now.
