Murphy's Law. Yep, it seems to be alive and well. As most of you know, I've been working with Aspyr Media to create desktops that would be included with each game. This started with Escape From Monkey Island and we've been going strong since then. Of course I knew there would be bumps in the road and we hit our first one when my five desktops for Tomb Raider Chronicles were mistakenly left off the gold master cd. Well, I really enjoyed these desktops and wanted to be sure the die hard Lara Croft fans could have access to them so I am featuring them this week as my desktop selection of the week. Yep, you're getting 5 desktops for the price of one! ;D

As I've stated before I am a long time fan of the Tomb Raider series. So when I was approached with the opportunity to create desktops that would be included with an actual game, I jumped at the chance. Sometimes I hit a little "creative block" when I need to produce 5 desktops at once, but not in this case. I probably could have done more, but 5 seems like a nice number. Don't ask me how we arrived at it. This week, however, the desktops are in only 4 assorted flavors instead of 9. I chose to do this to keep them true to the format they would have been on the cd. They are titled in order from top to bottom: Blaze of Glory, Bustin' Out, The Legacy Lives On, No Way Out and The Chronicles. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did making them. :)

Also, this week is the Macworld Expo in New York! Yours truly will be in attendance. I'll be all over the expo floor, but if you want a chance to meet me then keep an eye out for me at games section. I'm sure I can take a few minutes out of my schedule to sign autographs. ;D

Finally, there has been progess at my personal site, Custer's Corner. I've made mention for a few weeks that the teaser trailer would come down and something new would be going up to replace it and that finally happened. :) Last week I added the new title graphic, which is already receiving a lot of praise via email. There's still a little html work to do, but I went ahead and added the graphic so you can see that I am working on the site as time permits. This will be the hub to my web site once it's mapped and guide you to all the sections that my site will have. I hope that now this is done the rest of it will develope a little faster. ;D

Until then...
