I have kept journals for 9 years and so its surprising that I should only discover blogging as a new format of journal writing. It's about time I embrace it and see if its as fun.

When I was 16 I got heavily addicted to a web based browser game called Larkinor, I played it for about 2 years before I moved onto better games. It wasn't a very widely known game, in fact I would say there were only 100 regular players at that time. I joined a chat room and met a lot of people, most of whom were from America, they were all very nice and it made my gaming experience very enjoyable. This image I drew using pen and ink was to commemorate all the friends I'd made during my time there. All of the quirky names on the outside of the image were player names so that when I posted this on the forum they could see where they were.

This second image was drawn specifically for a friend I'd made in the game called Monty (game name). He had lost his Dad that week so I decided in memory I would draw an image and do a similar thing with everybody's names. The game was very much a community of very nice people and it was nice to show him how much we all meant to each other. It was a last minute decision to actually colour this one in, it certainly made it more vivid.
This drawing was the last one I ever did for Larkinor, by this time I was getting bored of the game and a lot of my old friends were leaving. This drawing was for somebody we all called Cinder who within the game was on the top list for being the best robber, so I focused on the robbing aspect of the game. It was a nice way to say goodbye.
