I'm in a bit of a slump right now as far as animation is concerned, so I've been doing more drawings lately. Check them out!


I'll be posting artwork somewhat regularly now, probably even once I get started with a new short film again. Hard to overstate the satisfaction of getting something done within hours or days, rather than weeks or months.

I've been trying a more analog approach this time and made a short film using charcoal drawings. It's been fun getting my hands dirty and trying out new techniques to see what works and what doesn't; and while it's more of a setting than a story (or in a way, the aftermath of a story), I do hope I managed to capture a slightly different type of atmosphere: Mammon's Wake

Exactly two decades ago a little Flash website got uploaded to whatever free webspace was available at the time, showcasing whatever my angsty teen mind had come up with, created with what was then considered cutting edge technology.


Fast forward and Flash has come and gone but MINDistortion stuck around, so to celebrate its 20th birthday I've finally integrated the Ruffle Flash Player emulator. Now for everyone on Newgrounds that's not an especially big deal but for me personally it's like my games have finally come back home again! So drop by, for a bit, if you feel so inclined.


Anyways, special thanks to Newgrounds and @TomFulp for getting me started with that whole Flash thingie more than half a lifetime ago and special thanks to Ruffle for keeping a lifeline going!

So with a delay of about a decade I posted a handful of old charcoal drawings to the Art Portal, including a new one. Since I'm not scouted it won't show up in the Art Portal, meaning this post is the only way you'll find them so go check them out! ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘‰

I've finally wrapped up another video for a track I made in late 2020 / early 2021! There's quite a backlog of music that I want to create videos for, alas animation takes time. Aw well, baby steps. Here's the new one: Higher Order. I hope it finds some folks that like it!

Here's another track I made: Sines


A new animation is on its way as well so stay tuned and watch this space!

The last few months gave me the opportunity for introversion and trying my hand at making music. So here's my very first video featuring music of my own:


of the voidย โ€“ On the sweet nothing that is our home.


Don't worry, I'm not singing.


(music also available for streaming onย Spotify,ย Apple Musicย and other platforms)

So Pocket Emo is having a bit of a revival right now and I have no idea what's going on. If someone could fill me in how people are rediscovering Pocket Emo that'd be great because I'm horribly out of touch with... whatever it is that you guys are doing these days.


But apart from that I'm just happy that you're happy.


And apologies to the ones struggling with running the game on mobile, when it first came out most of us still had flip phones and were hanging out on MySpace while listening to VHS tapes on our Napsters.

So now that the Death of Flash is officially, finally, for real, absolutely, happening, I managed to convert all of my movies to video. For now they are only updated on MINDistortion.tv, eventually I'll update them here on Newgrounds as well.


While converting my animation swfs I was pondering what to do with my old games and to my great surprise browser-based Flash projects have made amazing progress! And even better, one of these projects is supported by Newgrounds! I'm in awe and I can't believe I wasn't aware of this until now.


Either way, I'll be gradually testing and enabling the Ruffle emulator on my old Flash games. I just did it for Zombie Squirrel Attack, for example.


I honestly considered all the old Flash content gone for good, or rather banned from the browser and doomed to a fringe existence as downloadable executables. But this, this does put a smile on my face.
