Hey Newgrounds, 

How are you all going? Feels like it's been an enternity since I last posted about any NG related news - including anything 'Satchel' or 'Groove' related... so, what's the deal? 

Just busy I guess. Life gets that way sometimes. I would like to commit to this a lot more though. In fact, I have started to re-focus a bit of my attention away from "work-work" stuff and pour more of my energy, time and commitment into my creations on here. It feels good too. I've been missing the creative process and just the general feeling of excitement that comes with telling a story the way I wanna tell it on my own terms (be it good, bad or otherwise). It's just a lotta fun! 

Anyway, here's to some quicker uploads in the near future. Hope you're all well and havin' a ball yourselves.

Hi Newgrounds folks!

So, I have just uploaded the next installment of 'The Adventure Satchel' and I have changed the format ever so slightly. It is still told in its traditional 'AV Storytelling' format, but I have changed the intro stinger so that it gets into the action and/or the *actual* story much quicker than it previously had done. On top of that, I have also tinkered with the fonts. 

The real reason for this is because my old laptop died and - as a result - I lost the font files (should'a backed them up - but alas - I did not AND I couldn't find the font type I was after...) Ah well, C'est la vie! I kinda figure it's for the best anyway. The newer format is a little cleaner and easier to replicate now.

At the end of the day, I suppose it's all about discovery and working your way through a project such as this one...

Anyway, hope you all enjoy! 

New uploads as soon as I am able to...

Alrighty Newgrounds - hope things are well! Here's an update on things:

Recently I just finished uploading a series to my YouTube Channel which was centred around my fiancé and I's trip to Japan earlier this year. By all means, click the link and check it out if you really want to (there are fourteen videos in total - as it was a video per day type of thing). The bottom line is - I promised myself that I would complete this series and see it through to the very end *before* committing to anything extra and that also included... 'THE ADVENTURE SATCHEL' series that I am uploading exclusively on here now. I have really, really missed working on this series and so now is the time to get back into it all and keep it going. It's going to be a LOT of work and it's definitely a "long haul" type of project, so here's me committing to it as best I can. Any support, comments and/or such things are greatly appreciated as well. 

Currently, I am working on the script and I am about to begin production on the next installment. It should be along relatively soon. They do take some sweet time though - so please - be patient. I will endeavour to do my best to get them out to you when I can and, ultimately, at the highest possible quality too. 

With all that being said - just quickly - thank you Newgrounds for all the support and views thus far! The most popular episode on here (Ep. 4) was the most unpopular on YouTube (I think it barely managed to hit 13 views or something... no joke...) so thank you once again! I think 'THE ADVENTURE SATCHEL' has found a home and I'm glad to keep it going on here where it might at least be watched and appreciated. 

On that happy note - best wishes for the holiday season! Merry Christmas (if you're celebrating it) and all the best for 2017! 

I'm off to create, enjoy Chrissy and spend some time with my wonderful fiancé and my family. 


Work in Progress...

Now that all episodes of 'The Adventure Satchel' are uploaded (as of this moment), I have another project that I am keen to finish up over on YouTube before I continue to make the new episodes. Rest assured though, I fully intend to keep making more once the YouTube project is all finished up... which should be pretty soon. 

Thanks Newgrounds!
