Here are a few things that inpired me artistically this week:
1. Katatonia - This band is a stellar example of progressive musicians who take care to craft their unique sound and change over the years. Truly inspirational stuff for my own music down the road.
2. My new character - During one lunch break at work, this random character idea popped into my head and I drew what was swirling around in there. I can say that it’s terribly unoriginal, but still looks pretty neat and similar to a previous character I designed (bottom left), so I might tie them together at some point.
3. Mass Effect - Science-fiction might be my second-favourite genre behind comedy due to its limitless possibilities and creativity. This video game series is a great example of it along with strong storytelling and, revisiting it after a few years, it still holds up.
4. The Shooting Stars cartoon - A cartoon short made by some random people online (and posted here on Newgrounds). The only reason I bring it up is because of how hilarious it is and that it’s a bar that I’d like to reach with my own comedy. Solid, nonstop flow of quality jokes performed well.
