Oh, hey, it's been a while. School was really rough after that last post -- EVERYTHING happened: Anime Boston, portfolio reviews, senior show... I only just started picking up the pieces of myself by the middle of May.
And then Graduation happened just as things started rolling again.
I've had a lot of free time lately as I search for employment, so I should be able to update a little more often.
Sketch: Vin from Mistborn
I reacquainted myself with Mistborn (Brian Sanderson) and have been making my way through the rest of the trilogy. The first volume is really good and I recommend it to anyone interested in scifi-stuff. I'm only half-way through the third installment. The world is fully encompassed in the first volume: you can stop there, or you can see what happens to everyone AFTER the big showdown, which is what I'm doing now.
I was introduced to Brian Sanderson's writing with Elantris (also really good): what really hooked me (besides his excellent and informal grasp on the English language) is the way he is able to create a fully-functional, believable world and environment. He also makes supernatural elements logical with rules and guidelines to their applications while still being magical and mysterious and everything you love about things not normal.
