Hey guys, I know I haven't been making as much stuff to put up here. Truth is I am working on things in between real life priorities and/or my job. Still...things are coming. Right now I'm working a lot behind the scenes on my music album I want to put out, it's starting to come together but I still need to record a few more tracks before I can start finalizing it all and making it sound great. Once that's done I plan on doing a lot of artwork for it as well, aiming for each song to have its own illustration (currently I am aiming to have the album sit at 13 tracks, so that will be 13 illustrations). I can crank those out really quick once I get the audio out of the way.
I've been busy. I've been working a lot at work and then splitting time as well with family. I wish I could dedicate myself full time to my craft but I can't unfortunately, I usually come home mentally exhausted from having to deal with people all day and I don't work great in that state so most of my work comes on my days off when I actually have them to myself. Still though the tentative release for the album Funeral should be early next year. I was hoping to get it out by the end of this year but the album took on a way different direction than originally anticipated as well as a larger scope. It was only going to be a small 4 track release, but as I stated it's going to be a 13 track affair. Unlike a lot of other things I've talked about recently this is starting to really near completion, I'd say I'm around 75% of the way there for recording and I hope to get all that done by the end of the month. Then it's trying to make it sound good + draw all the things I need for it.
After the album is wrapped up we'll see where I am at. I think I'll give Bad Dudes Beware another shot, I've restarted the damn thing so many times by this point never satisfied with how it turns out but it is a project I want to do. Art book is still an always work in progress type thing, as each new piece I make can easily find its way in there. I've also been tinkering with the actual Nimako website (my "company" so to speak, think of it as just my hub for all my content eventually) and plan to get that up once Funeral launches.
So yeah, I've been keeping busy. Maybe not readily apparent in the amount of what I've been posting lately but stuff -is coming- and I mean that for real. I'm no longer making promises on projects that are so far off in oblivion that I can't keep. One step at a time and right now my focus is on finishing this musical album and its accompanying art.
If you want to listen to some of the demos I have up, here are some: soundcloud.com/laserbat/sets/f…
There are 7 demos there. I think total I have 10 demos in all to finish up, and then 3 totally new tracks to record as well. So I'm well on my way with it.
Thanks a lot for your patience, I really hope you guys will enjoy it all once I'm done.
