So! Hi everyone! (at least to the few who still read my diaries after such a long time of absence) *chases of the dust bunnies*

Good news all around! I started working for Rock Pocket Games. A small company in Tønsberg/Norway which is specialized in IOS, Android and soon xbox games. If you are an Iphone user you might know/or have tried one of our games called "The Package". It was Game of the Week in the US app store last year and we are currently working on a IPad HD version with improved Graphics as well as an Android version. So if you like puzzle games go check it out (or check out the IGN review from June last year before you get it) :)

We are also looking for highly motivated and talented Programmers in the area (if you want, follow us on facebook (I'll be making a lot of silly useless updates in the future so be forewarned ;))
We have a lot of very exciting projects coming up.

I also got quite a few emails about if I am still painting and what happened to my website:
First of all yes I am, however I am having not a lot of time currently since I am also attending evening classes after our move here in Norway to learn Norwegian :)
Secondly, my website was hacked so my hosting provider took it down for security measures and I am currently working on a new one (however since I am also doing a lot of stuff for my new job I am also not having much time to work on that area).
At the moment my fitness blog is the main domain which will change once I got around to redo my portfolio.

Anyway, I am still alive and kicking and sure not many care but hey, I have a few free minutes and decided to spend it bugging you guys ;)

Much <3 to everyone who is still around and lets not be strangers!

Hehe, you may be challenged by my northern Norwegian dialect. It's quite different from what you are used to, I suppose. Should be great exercise :)

The fun thing is that I seem to have less issues understanding strong Norwegian dialects then Henning :p
Not sure why that is..

Hello Tascha!

Nice hearing from you, and even nicer that you have good news to share!

Sorry to hear that your website got hacked though - if you need any help setting up a new one, do not hesitate to contact me (Henning had mentioned in an email that there might be some work required on your website, though that was a loooong time ago and he was referring to your old, now hacked, site).

Thanks for the offer. I might get back to you about that. I normally do my websites myself but I am seriously lacking time at the moment.

Hi Natascha! Great to see you here. Congratulations on the new gig and good luck with that Norwegian. Will Henning start speaking to you in that language exclusively? You will have to learn the Norwegian word for Pop Tart :P Glad to hear you still paint some. Cheers!

I am already talking Norwegian but it's mostly me talking to HIM not the other way around. He talks English to me mostly :p

*bugs Tascha right back* I am so glad things in Norway seem to be settling down for you two. We're doing well here, just very, very, busy with real life family issues.

keight Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2011
Thank you for asking, m'dear. They are quite good issues, actually. They just involve more parenting and grand-parenting time, which is very good though a bit stressful, as our eldest daughter has made further progress in her grieving and has gone back to college/uni on a medical track. It just means that the, normal, rowdy 4 year old boy and his monster trucks and pirate swords doesn't fit tidily in my living room/art studio. :D (Henning will relate best to that.) I have learned to be very careful about accepting new work, and have cut back on convention attendance and sales. Youngest daughter, who has become "favorite auntie", has had to refund a couple of commissions due to sudden cutbacks on her working art time; which can happen even without this kind of situation. Deadlines are called deadlines for a reason. :)

Kyena Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Sounds like you have your hands full but also quality family time. Which is always great :)
Make sure you keep the advice you gave me for yourself as well: do not power yourself out. Cutting down on commissions is a good start (Henning had to learn that too and still struggles with saying no (unlike me!!).

I promise. :D

I do need to find time to find a way to find homes for some matted, signed and numbered, archival prints. I haven't found anyone who can talk me through setting up a store on my website. :D One of these days...................

Enjoy your weekend.

I am only familiar with some wordpress plugins and I assume your website is not based on wordpress.

Sadly, you are correct. I simply haven't yet been able to match schedules with any of our local tech friends. :D
