Out with the Old in with the New


It cannot be denied that it has been a long while since I have posted here. Now you will have noticed the update of the look of the blog, that was one of the reasons for my stay of absence. There are legio other reasons but I won't bother you with that now. Let me first tell you about the picture now adorning the banner of this blog. It's a drawing of me, obviously, in 7YW Austrian uniform.

It came about due to my close relationship with the great people at HäT industries, who at one point realised that since most new boxart is done digitally, it could be done with real people's faces on them rather then invented persons. So I was asked would you like to donate your face to some boxart? Oh hell yes I would like to! So now you can go to any good modelshop and buy two different boxes featuring my ugly mug i.e. the 7YW Austrian command and samples boxes.

Save to say I am immensely proud and happy to receive this honour. I am allowed the use of the picture for own use so I asked a co-worker of the arts-department at school, who's great with digital stuff, to create me a new banner and hey presto. The fact I am not able to centre it correctly is due to the vagaries of Blogger, but hey it looks nice enough to me.

Meanwhile I have been busy doing work but have also done a little hobbying by the side and I will be showing some of the results of that here soon.

For now that's all folks, cheers Sander
