Links

Here's a list of links to some of my favorite sites on the web.


Art

CGTalk A very helpful graphics forum frequented by some of the most talented artists from around the globe (and me!). If you have a question about computer graphics this is the place to ask it.
deviantART A hosting site for artist's galleries with a wide range of users.
Nether The home site of my friend Neil which includes a gallery of character sketches and paintings.

Mac

Apple Of course.
Macworld Daily updated news site covering all Mac topics.
MacFormat General interest Macintosh magazine. Where I used to work as the Cover CD editor.
XLR8YourMac A haven for Mac technical information.
IconFactory Tart up your Mac's Desktop with some tasty new icons.

Gaming

GameFAQs Hosting site for game tips, walkthroughs and discussion boards.
Play This Thing A games review site covering homebrew indie titles.
Cinemassacre Home of the angry video game nerd, James Rolfe, who reviews crappy old console games.
Fully Ramblomatic Zero Punctuation's website. The British expat living in Australia who records verbose video reviews of new console games.

Comics

VGCats A really cool gaming inspired comic. With added Cats!
Applegeeks A heavily Apple theamed site with 2 comics, a large semi-regular updated one and a more regular 4 panel strip.
Sinfest Beautifully drawn online comic that's updated virtually every day. Its main protagonists are a Calvin (as in Calvin and Hobbs) lookalike kid who fancies himself as a streetwise hustler and his slacker female friend. Also has guest appearances by God, the Devil, a couple of cutesy angels, and a cat and dog double act.
Penny Arcade Excellent online strip that comments on recent computer gaming news.
Diesel Sweeties Online strip drawn in a style reminicant of the classic Maniac Mansion adventure game (blocky characters with large heads). The cast includes a clueless robot who's dating an ex-pornstar, her eager younger sister, and a pompous Indie rocker. What's not to love?
PVP Yet another online comic with a gaming theme but this is definitely worth catching.
Octopus Pie Bizarre tales of a couple of women who house share in Brooklyn.
The Abominable Charles Christopher A beautifully drawn strip following the quest of an abominable snowman.
