EDIT: Ooooooh i never posted the news here... I swear I did...
This is a copy from elsewhere about it.
I've been sick and on worker's compensation from being exposed to calcium hypochlorite disodiumsalt of ethylenediaminetetraaceticaciddihydratediammoniumsulfate with still unknown floculent ingrediants. This stuff was puffed into my face when I folded up a single layer of cardboard that covered the wooden palette. On this palette was about 12 boxes of the stuff. I handled the chemical perfectly, I got sick handling a piece of cardboard.

So how did the cardboard become covered in this chemical? Ever get a bag of flour and there's flour all over the outside of the fucker? Its from the factory and can't be helped. So my company has been very nice to me lately, though I'm now entering my 4th week of having little breath to spare and still coughing. I see a specialist soon next month at least.

All this means I am home a lot and I have been around to do some art to stay active. I will likely stream some sketches and make things fun. I've felt like crap, can barely go outside, and I don't know when I can return to work.

Lastly I leave you with this... WHAT HAS SCIENCE DONE!?!? I'll let everyone know when I sprout boobs or something...

Walked into my job today after 3 months of recovery from the chemical inhalation. My right arm went tingly, my lips turned white, instant headache, and I couldn't breathe. I can't go back to work at that job. I might lose my job but hell if that happens, there will most likely be some legal action. I am so fucking tired of this shit.

You can find a wayyy better job rim, and also good luck with your lawsuit if you intent to sue(i know that won't be fun either).

I don't recall this incident. Recap? (I'm assuming it's more than "I inhaled some chemicals".)

That's terrible. I hope you can recover fully, though if just walking into the building does that to you after 3 months, it doesn't bode well for that...

Life has been not fun lately. >_>

DEFINITELY let us know if you sprout boobs. And post pictures.

Ah, suing. The second American pastime after baseball. I'm not sure what to say to that so I won't say anything.

I'll just say I hope you're alright.

IS THAT CHEMICAL A GENDER BENDER CHEMICAL???

I thought that the gender bender shit was off those refill scratch cards for phones and cupons or raffle thingys... o.o

Don't worry, you'll recover soon enough and all this shit will be left behind!

I HAVE FAITH!

I'll pay you to tutor me modelling and materials creation rim! =P

It goes without saying you could make money as a freelance digital artist/animator/skinner/etc, just to name a few.. not to mention all the multiple contests with cash prizes(less for the money and more for the exposure).

How are you not working in the gaming industry, or do you not want to do that for a living?

Well he is making an indie game. Does that count?

i guess i meant i thought rim would be working for one of the big ones a long time ago, ya know?

I think Rim prefers to be his own boss. That way he can do things in his own style.

Wow hope you come out of this ok!

I hope you get well. It is a bit disturbing to think that, while in this condition, you are also considering that operation you posted about in the last journal...

I would love to work for a studio or company, its means at least some job security.

Sadly, in key points of my career development, things were missed. Being a high-tech based industry, I didn't have a computer that could run Source for a loooong time, or I couldn't get the tools everyone was learning like Zbrush. Simply I couldn't keep up with what I had at the time and it's set me back so much to the point where I'm nearly undesirable. I'm making a game in hopes that it would simply float and people enjoy it. I would like to make money, but seriously it features real people. All of whom I have not acquired photo-release forms from and I have no clue what legal bounds I have either selling the game in anyway, or if it can even be sold.

Even then, I see a lot of super successful titles being campaigned on kickstarter or similar. I tried and my campaign flopped for semi-political reasons. I didn't make a dime. I haven't gotten donations in forever and it seems like no one is even paying attention to it, or I don't see it or something. Feels like I have no support but I just keep working on it anyway.

There's not anything I can do financially at the moment, but you have my support as a fan, and I enjoy every update I see!

That means so much to me, thank you.
Let me know if you want a role in SMJ, I have so many spots still available.

Your stuff is great. In my opinion good things are timeless so no matter what engine or program you use, it's the passion that counts. Keep up the good work, ever consider making cell phone games? I hear you can make killer amounts doing so.
