Of Art and Warcraft

I've been pretty busy on a custom order and all these new ideas coming off the top of my head. I'm still not done. I did put up the whimsical 8 x 10 print above called "Whisked Away" which is what I feel sometimes. Sometimes you can't help it but something comes grabs you and whisks you away. I'm also getting ready for Valentine's Day. But shh that's a secret! Which reminds here are some couple related items I have in my shops the print You and Me, Nerd Origami Couple, my most popular one Lover's Knot Origami Ornament.
But wait this post is "Art and Warcraft?" Well here it is I use to be a major World of Warcraft or "WoW" player. WoW is a highly addictive multi player game where people from all around the world design and level up characters where they can do a multitude of things from PvP (player vs player) to PvE (player vs environment) which is also know as "Raiding." Anyways I was in a great close knit guild called Archons which consisted of real life friends and people I've grown to call great friends.

Due to the addictive nature and my lack of self control (it's just way too fun!) I had quit cold turkey last year but that addiction is creeping up again now in the form of... ART! Yeps I loved the rich lush environment of the game and the character designs. My guild is still up and going with a new website I tweaked up the layout and made the above banner of a night elf against the moonlight. The pendant she wears is the guild tabard logo. I think it turned out quite well and glad I'm still around and keep in contact with these wonderful friends. In the summer I may go back but until then this is what I allow myself to do.

Until next time, wtfbbq! <-- one of those crazy things you see in WoW chat

Haha I know that feeling of addiction to gaming...GunBound was my forte. I don't know if you've heard of it. But it was just too addicting and like you I stop cold turkey before I waste away my life.

I say good for you! It's not an easy thing to do.

I once dabbled in one a game similar to the one you described... don't even remember the name now, but I too, quit cold turkey. I feel like I may now, know one of your 7 things, but here goes...
You've been tagged! :)
Please check out my blog for the details. I chose carefully- I'm looking forward to reading your "7 things." :)

I love that print! It is so simple but so complete in its meaning.

I have never let myself get into WOW because I have such an addictive personality I would probably never get anything else done again.
