It just hit me today that five years ago this month I held what I then called the “final” edition of PauseTalk (Vol. 85) in Tokyo — here’s the post I wrote to mark that end. That event took place on March 2, 2015, and a few weeks later (on March 31) I would be […]
The latest post up on the State of Tokyo site is a beautifully shot look at the latest PauseDraw event. It’s great to see the event get a nice bit of coverage like this, and big thanks to Alex for the PauseTalk mention — I miss doing those events too.
After taking a bit of a holiday break, I’m glad to see that Luis and Adrian‘s PauseDraw is back in 2017 with its first edition set for February 12 — you’ll find all the details on the Facebook event page.
PauseDrawers keep on drawing, with the next event set for November 27 at Shibaura House, the space which seems to have turned into the event’s regular venue (pictured, a previous PauseDraw held there). You’ll find more details on the Facebook event page.
The next edition of PauseDraw — PauseTalk‘s sister series all about drawing — is just around the corner, taking place on Sunday, October 16, at 16:00, at Shibaura House, the same place as last time (pictured in this post). As always, it’s hosted by Tokyo’s two favorite drawers, Luis Mendo and Adrian Hogan.
Even though I’m no longer in Tokyo running my PauseTalk events, it warms my heart to see that its offshoot, PauseDraw, is still going strong. Unlike PauseTalk where talking’s the thing, the sister series is all about getting a group of people together to draw, draw, and then draw some more. Originally started by Luis […]
The final PauseTalk (Vol. 85) was held on Monday, March 2, 2015. The end, my friends. “Final” is a big word, and you may be wondering why I decided to put an end to the series, instead of getting someone else to continue running it – and there was indeed interest in doing that. Let […]
PressPause is go. If you’re curious to find out how last week’s first session went, I wrote a short rundown over at the PressPause site. As you’ll see, our first meeting was about getting to know each other, and coming up with the game ideas that we’ll be working on in teams over the course […]
Let’s make games together. It’s no secret that I’ve loved the world of games all my life. I’ve even covered them professionally, with contributions to Wired‘s Game|Life, Kotaku, and 1UP, as well as my work with Brian Ashcraft on theArcade Mania book, about Japanese game centers. But I’ve never made one. A few years ago I […]
PauseTalk is now an .org, officially. I don’t know why I waited so long to do this, but I finally went and got the domain pausetalk.org for PauseTalk, and that’s where the site now resides (instead of as folder on this site). It doesn’t really change things much, but there’s something satisfying about having it […]
