Waking up Snorlax

February 18, 2013 Leave a comment

I am a Snorlax.

I’ve been one for a long time now, and it’s the main reason why I haven’t updated this blog in almost 8 months.  I’ve been in a rut that’s left me lazy and unmotivated to write anything for the longest time, but it’s about time I snap out of it and get back into the swing of things.

This pretty much sums me up over the last 8 months.

So this blog post serves as my Poke Flute, it’s what I hope will wake me up from out of this rut and get me back to doing something that I really loved doing.

I don’t really have a plan for how often I will update, but I can guarantee that it won’t be another 8 months before I post something new.  I also don’t plan on continuing with Doodle A Day, as doing that for so long is what kind of burnt me out on this blog in the first place.  I might still do a doodle now and than but it’s not going to be a daily feature anymore.

So for those of you who followed my ramblings in the past I apologize for my long absence, and hope you’ll stick around with me a bit longer. So with that out of the way.

It’s time to wake up!

Doodle A Day: Day 112 E. Honda

Well it would seem playing Pokemon Blue has finally influenced one of my doodles, as I decided to model E. Honda after Snorlax.  I really like my Street Fighter/Pokemon mash-up so my question for you is, Street Fighter X Pokemon anyone?

Doodle A Day: Day 108 Gabumon

I had a lot of trouble today trying to decide what to draw, but I have an old Gabumon figure on my desk and after staring at it long enough I decided to draw him.  The Digimon TV show game out around the same time that Pokemon was really starting to  become popular in North America, so it was inevitable that the two series would be compared among the playgrounds of yesteryear.

Pokemon or Digimon?  That was the big question of the day and while some kids had their allegiances,  I was never able to really pick a side.  I loved both for different reasons so it seemed unreasonable to pick one.  But one thing was certain, with both Digimon and Pokemon around, the 90s were a great place to grow up as a kid.
