Next on RGN #11

Happy Easter
Lately I've cut down on my reading considerably. This is due to several reasons, but what this means is that I reduced my buy list to those books that really resonate with me, entertain and help me have a good time reading them.

Sure there's no way to know if a book is good before reading it, but I'm keeping to the series that have proven themselves and reduced my budget for new things.

Anyway, Happy Easter everyone and these are the books I currently have on my reading pile and will review in the next weeks.

Review: NARGGS's New Family

Cover

NARGGS's New Family is yet another Kickstarter funded project that came to life.

This is not the kind of book I usually read, but their Kickstarter pitch was so personal and emotional that I had to pitch in and help this come to life. If I remember correctly it was a difficult project to fund, but eventually it got there.

Jim and Tyler Kirkham are the authors of this children's book. Tyler you might know from his work in mainstream comics.

And now for something completly different (new blog)

Smile
Sometime ago I got bitten with the photography bug. Since then its been a great journey of learning the craft and exploring new motives.

This means that I've been visiting places I never new existed, meeting new people that share the same passion about photography and learning new things like I haven't done in a long time. This last year was indeed a strange, but interesting year. On top of this I had the good fortune of having an awesome wife that, not only encourages me to do the things I love (be it read comics or make photographs), likes to accompany me and share in the fun.
