2013 in a word: Meh
2013 in slightly more words: Yeah, it's still meh, just like last year. Deal with it.
Last year's goals:
-Get some more work in. Money first. Then the women.
Been somewhat active in the commissiony front, having worked on more asdfmovies and other things. Still waiting on the women, though.
-Be less of an antisocial awk-wod and collaborate some more. Or just get out more.
Kinda? I guess. I dunno. Have been working with people I haven't worked before, but I'm still in the middle of nowhere so not much in the way of interaction.
-Make something successful (that someone didn't commission you to do) so that you become popular and people will buy your lame shirts.
Not really. Only a handful of Wonchop-exclusive shorts this year, barely breaking past the thirty-second mark.
-Try to get out of the country again, potentially to somewhere you've yet to go.
In a sense. Went to France again with the family. Maybe shouldn't have spent 40 euros on a hat, mind you.
-Try a macaron. Just cos.
I tried many a macaron. They were quite yums. Didn't make me into a Japanese lesbian schoolgirl mind.
-More meets and expos: MCM, Newgrounds, Summer in the City, etc. as well as a few Channel Flip shindigs.
-Getting to meet cool non-Brits for the first time, including LilDeuceDeuce, Living Tombstone and Kylee Freaking Henke.
-Getting free shit from PopCap's Peggle 2 Guy cos of that crappy pic I doodled during E3.
-Making more asdfmovies which gently massage the ego a little.
-Indulging in new tech including a new tablet, new phone and a Wii U.
-Discovering the joy of Netflix. Then learning about that plug-in that lets you watch American Netflix.
-Becoming a lot more active on Tumblr.
-Having my face on a freakin' bauble.
-So much anime.
-Not having much time/drive/imagination to work on my own stuff, mostly due to commissions. Or possibly distractions.
-Some of those commissions being really awkward to work on.
-Pork sword pork sword pork sword pork sword pork sword...
-Stupid karma preventing that day out with Kylee from being as awesome as it could've been. >
-Losing many hours of productivity arguing with that one arsehole on Wikipedia.
-The computer corner of my room getting less and less natural light.
-Missing a load of movies in the cinema due to being stuck in the house all day.
-So much anime...
-Having to animated a stickman blowjob. Yup.
-And draw a vagina.
-And three kinds of hymen.
-All in the same animation.
Stuff of the year:
-Movies: Wreck-it-Ralph, Iron Man 3, Madoka Rebellion (totally watched a camrip)
-Games: Mario & Luigi Dream Team Bros, Super Mario 3D World, Rayman Legends, Animal Crossing New Leaf, Rogue Legacy
-TV: Steven Universe, Wander Over Yonder, Avatar (marathoned that shiz), Legend of Korra
-Anime: DokiDoki! Precure, Kill la Kill, Little Witch Academia, Yuyushiki, Kiniro Mosaic, Gatchaman Crowds, Vividred Operation, WataMote
Goals for 2014
-Become a lot more active in uploading original content. As per my network's suggestion, I intend to try and get out at least one vid per month.
-Possibly move out of my family's house and start living where all the cool kids (and collaboration/work opportunities/ladies) are.
-Go outside of Europe again. Long stretch, Japan, otherwise maybe some con in America or something.
-Start having a proper presence in the UK expo scene, maybe with a panel or table or something.
-Maybe pick up driving again? Haven't been able to restart them due to insufficient funds, but someday.
Quote of the year:
"Woah! That Wonchop is really really hot!"
Sonic the Hedgehog
- Listening to: WASH AWAY THE ANGERRRR
- Watching: Non Non Biyori, Danganronpa Abridged Thing
- Playing: Injustice: Gods Among Us, Nintendo Land
Here's something you should add:
Get an Artist hat
I got mine and it's a Fedora!
Hats are kinda an issue when almost all my time on the computer is spent wearing headphones.
Get more goggles.
Be a pimp. Get all the bitches.
Become a big name animator and do your own thing, instead of being stuck animating asdfmovie (Besides, TomSka takes credit for all your hard work anyways.)
Buy Smash Bros. for WiiU or 3DS when it comes out.
