Activity on this blog has slowed to a crawl as of late, which has a lot to do with a) finals b) the hellish production of two‘s pilot and c) the fact that I’m graduating in maybe like 48 hours? Crazy. So, yeah, things have been hectic, and things are changing, and I felt it […]Read More Spring Cleaning & Updates!

Looking Forward / Looking Backwards is a series of articles discussing ACC PUB INK’s former and upcoming projects. Tempest is coming, very, very slowly. But it’s coming, and it’s really messed up.
