Matts Designs Blog

Mon Sep 02, 2013 7:27 am

[Edit]
My blog is closed for a while.
One reason is though I had quite a few visitors I only have 1 comment (and that was from a friend). I can't blame people though because you have to sign in with something to comment.

I'm sure I will be back in some form though because someone needs to pass down some dark ride knowledge to future generations, just need a while to think about things.

I'm releasing a book

Tue Sep 10, 2013 3:12 pm

News! (its relevant so please don't delete this!)

Image

I have created a picture type book (11 inch x 8 inch) for ideas plus a few things I've learned along the way. I'm thinking of pricing it between 9.99 and 12.99 as it only has 30 pages. It contains some of the some stuff from my blog - rejigged but also much other work including my best work yet.

I'm just an enthusiast rather than a payed professional so my main selling point is the illustration/graphics I've done for it.

As far as I know, its not up yet. If it is, don't buy it yet since I still need to proof it. Please let me know your thoughts good and bad. While I realize my blog was a nice idea - I do need to move out of my parents house at some point 8)

thanks man!

The cover was the best I could do with create space. I've got gimp but I'm not brilliant at it. Will just see how it does as it is, then think about revision. Thanks again, for your honest opinion.

The proof is coming in a week and a half.

Feel a bit guilty now for being brutally honest!

If you want some ideas, or help putting something together, drop me a line some time :)

I've made a new blog. This will eventually contain my book: http://mattsdarkride.blogspot.co.uk/
At the moment there is just the first 3 scenes of my book but eventually it will be all of it.

There is a lot of overlap with my old blog but there will much new stuff added.
