Here's some stuff what's been making life in the plague regime bearable. Some of it's old, some of it's new.
Insomniacs has been part of my game design thoughts since May 2017. It's come a long way and I've struggled with a lot of existential crises about what this roleplaying game should actually be. It's laid out and I'm in the final art push.
How to green screen for gaming, and why you should, even if you already use Zoom
I've made tremendous progress on Insomniacs' interior in the past few weeks but I also redid the cover.

I'm proud to say that apparently that was a learning experience, because I've moved the Insomniacs text over from my google doc into Affinity Publisher way earlier than I did for Glow.
I got the art bug again and did some pictures that'll hopefully find their way into Copperhead County, Jason Eley's Forged in the Dark game about crime in the South.
