Week 77

This is a weekly recap of what has been going on in my professional life. It’s to keep track of what I’m up to and to give you a peek at what it’s like being an independent creator.

Last week I spent some time looking into the new VAT MOSS regulations. Luckily I could conclude from this flowchart that freelance work is not impacted by these changes, only direct (automated) sales from webshops. SO for now I don’t have to worry about it, but it will probably become relevant once I start selling my own games.

On wednesday I went up to Amsterdam North to talk business with a new potential client. They are housed in a really big factory building that holds many creative companies; it reminded me a lot of the Caballero factory in The Hague in that way. I’ll have to wait a bit to hear back from them, but if it goes through it would be a pretty big assignment.

I also closed a deal with Kars from Hubbub about a new project they’re doing that I can help them with.

So 2015 is off to a cautiously good start!

And then Charlie Hebdo happened. It was weird to draw with the news on, and it took a while to sink in, but all the positive responses around the world were a welcome sight in the wake of all the recent hateful outrage about basically everything.

Freshpost asked me to draw a cartoon in response, and I was reminded of Holland’s motto.

Next week: making a start on a 2015 resolutions project.
