Fanart Friday: Applin Valentine

Happy Friday! Also, happy valentine’s day! I hope your day is filled with good vibes and even better chocolate. Who else is looking forward to chocolate being on sale tomorrow? “There’s a rumor that if you give the one you like an Applin, you’ll be together forever!” Applin is one of the cutest designed Pokemon […]

Fanart Monday: Hail

Happy Monday! The last Monday of 2019… I’ve had a bit of downtime after the holidays, so I took advantage of some of the peace and quiet to play around more with some digital art. I got my Wacom tablet… maybe a year ago? I’m not even sure at this point, to be completely honest, […]

Fanart Friday: Shadowball

Happy Friday! For a while now, I’ve always wanted to do more art, especially for my favorite video game franchises. While I’ve always done more traditional art — sketches, colored pencils, markers — I’ve wanted to practice more with digital art recently. Figured I may as well start now!

Happy Monday! Aside from collecting the actual games, Rachel and I enjoy collecting other aspects of our favorite games and franchises to celebrate them.

Friday Favorites: Super Mario Games

There’s tons of hype going on for the Switch and the games slated to come out for the console, such as Super Mario Odyssey. While the Zelda and Pokemon franchises are more popular in our household, the Super Mario brothers are certainly up there as well, most likely due to the fact that it was […]

More Than a Hobby

Here we are, the last week of September. It’s certainly gone by fast, hasn’t it? Ever had a quarter-life (or, for those of you who may be a smidgen older) or mid-life crisis? Ever get that nagging feeling that maybe you’re not doing what you need to do in order to get your life on the right […]

Defending Gamers

Happy Thursday, everyone! If you’re reading this post, if you follow this blog, then I assume you’re a gamer. You love video games. And I’m here to tell you that there is nothing wrong with that. There’s more to gaming than just sitting on the couch, snacking on potato chips, and staring at the screen […]
