I'm a designer and illustrator by trade, but I also work on art projects and play lots of games. I run abatage studios, which is focused on Art, Design, and Illustration. This blog is a side project dedicated the process of creativity and my love of video games.

Game Post Notes:
While I don't think of my gaming posts as 'reviews' per se, there are a couple of things that I'd like to note.
I only write about games I've played enough to feel like I have something I'd like to say.
I'm not trying to keep up with cutting edge new releases, and instead stick to whatever I've been playing.
This is mostly because I'm not trying to provide a service, I just like talking/writing about games.
Most posts don’t get edited much. I tend to write them in one sitting and do little more than a spell check. So if you’re thinking they need a proof-read, they probably do!
I get asked about these things often enough to put this statement here, but always feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
