My best friend died last night. He's been sick for a long time, rallying after setbacks that came far too frequently. His body just couldn't anymore. With all the changes that have happened this year, art is taking a backseat to other aspects of life. Shayne's passing will be another opportunity to re-evaluate and revise my own plans while I try to deal with the fact that the most significant influence in my life these last 7 years, the reason I kept blogging when I wanted to give up, is no longer with me.
He hasn't been well enough to comment on the Geek blog in almost a year. It's been 9 months since he posted anything himself. And to be honest, his decreased participation has taken a little of the joy out of blogging.
So for a while I will have to put aside somethings, including AOG Studios, while I try to learn a new identity.
