Can video games be considered art?

It’s a tough question to answer. Certainly in this day and age they are not considered ‘high-art’ but when programming backgrounds and beautiful scenery, its hard not to consider them as such. Let’s consider Skyrim for a moment… someone (me) goes through hours upon hours coding, re-texturing, and updating the graphical properties of the game, using some mods he downloaded and some that he … Read More Can video games be considered art?

No Permanent Death in Fantasy

This is something that has been irking me for some time now. It’s a recurrent theme in most fantasy fiction, in stories, comics, and in movies. No matter what happens in a fantasy universe, there is always a way to bring a character back. No matter what. If the character is popular, there will always be an incantation, or special portal, or some sort … Read More No Permanent Death in Fantasy

With a pregnant wife at home, I had enough going on… Then we had to hear the news that Stan “Comic God” Lee was going to be there. Upon learning of this, my wife basically said, “Jim… go! It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity … Read More My Thoughts On Boston Comic Con…


Cover Inspiration

“Hi Jim, I was just wondering, Divinity’s cover looks really cool! May I ask where you get the ideas for yours? Like what makes you choose one scene in your writings over another? I want to create an awesome cover for my story and was hoping that you could point me in the right direction.” -Abby Hi Abby, I’m afraid that you caught me… … Read More Cover Inspiration


Fantasy Art, Chrissie Zullo

I know that this is slightly off-top for me, but I really couldn’t resist… Let me preface this by saying that I love comic book art.

So as … Read More Fantasy Art, Chrissie Zullo
