- Theo's World Cave hasn't been running for very long, but I'm already finding it engaging. The content is a heady blend of religion, the arts, random poetry, and whatever else happens to float across the azure skies of Theo's mind. There aren't many places you'll find commentary on 16th century mystics along side notes on 60's 'New Wave' science fiction, but this is one of them. Low volume at the moment, I'm not sure if it's because he hasn't the time, or just hasn't generated the community.
- Conversely, zenBen's Land of Words (or zenBen Land; I'm not really sure which) has been running for more than a year, during which time I managed to completely overlook it despite actually linking to it on a previous occasion. A more secular viewpoint, with a tasty blend of game research, geopolitics and reflections, I'm sad to have overlooked it for so long.
- Currently on hiatus while its proprietor swans off around the world, Gausswerks is a picture blog maintained by Only a Game stalwart Jack Monahan. Jack's concept art is deeply imbedded in gamer influences, yet his (I'm guessing materials here...) pastel, gouache and pencil sketches are far more expressive than most I see inside the industry. I used my favourite so far as the picture for this post.
That's all from me until next week - have fun everyone!
