Can you believe we're already half-way through February? After an incredibly busy couple of weeks, I was finally struck down on Monday by this stomach bug that's going around. I'm a workaholic - so I was pretty bummed to be out of work for a couple of days. But, I have to admit, it was kinda nice to have a couple of days taking it easy and letting my body recuperate. It clearly needed it.
Earlier this month I announced a new project I'll be working on called Supers - you can read all about it by via my announcement here. I've started the opening chapter this week and settled on a few main characters to begin with. Seriously, I've not been excited about something like this for an age. I can't wait to get you all involved! Make sure you bookmark this page - and join in the battle from March 8th.
If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you probably saw a few posts about a new gallery here on That Gent. I've only uploaded a few of my favourites for now, but there'll be plenty more coming soon. Check it out and let me know what you think. Depending on how busy Supers will have me, I might open up for commissions from April. So if there's anything you may be interested in - pop me an email and let me know.
Last weekend, Ben and I got the chance to go and see Birdman in the quaint little Greenwich Picturehouse. A fantastic life-affirming film about self discovery and believing in yourself. Emma Stone looked beautiful as always with her stella performance of a recovering drug addict, who is naturally the most grounded and smartest character in the film. We rounded off the evening with a meal at Nandos and stuffed ourselves silly with spicy chicken -- what better way to spend a Sunday!
Lastly, this evening I will be hosting the #lbloggers chat on Twitter! The theme is 'Creativity and Inspiration', so make sure you're following me @thatgentmark and look out for the questions from 7pm. Don't worry if you can't make the chat tonight - I'll be posting the questions and some of the answers on here tomorrow.
