Since there isn’t a comic up yet today, I recommend you go read some Left Handed Toons. Justin has been my internet room mate/landlord for a few months now. He also makes sure my things don’t explode in a bad way. So hey Justin, thanks for that. So if you’re in the mood for some funny stuff drawn Lefty, go check it out, damn you!
I know I haven’t been posting as much lately. Been kind of mentally blocked, unfortunately. But I thought as a way to celebrate Bob Marley’s birthday today, I would post my Raggae parodyish-cover of “Just What I Needed” by The Cars. I recorded it over the last week or so and thought you all might enjoy it. I hear everyone’s smokin a super bowl today anyway. (bwahahaha)
Well, kinda. Back in 09′ I worked at Lumenas animation studios and we were working on a movie called The Legend of Santa Claus. We were featured on the show “How It’s Made” and you can see me for a second in the episode.
Right about the 5:42 mark you can see me editing motion capture data. Good thing the camera was aimed at my good side.
I’ll be posting a comic today as soon as I’m off work, but I thought I would post a link to the channelate youtube page. I figure if you’ve subscribed in the last year or so, you might not have seen the four animated shorts I did in 09′. I’d like to do more in the future, but I can’t say it’ll be any time soon. http://www.youtube.com/channelatetv
Couldn’t have chosen a better Con to pop our exhibiting cherry than the Alternative Press Expo. We had a great time introducing new people to our comic face to face and even meeting a handful of current readers. We got to make new friends and meet some friends that we’ve only known online before APE. We exhibited with TNP Press consisting of my table buddy Rembrand of Beadfluff, Joenis of L.A.W.L.S. and his GF Ana, Phillipa of My Cardboard Life and Ali of Rob the Bot. It was also fun getting to know Ray and Alex of Buttersafe, staring intentionally awkwardly across the aisle at Cari of DOOR and Savannah of Amya Chronicles, and trading a shot glass for an awesome print from Chris of Toonhole. We’re excited to see all these guys at other cons as we hopefully start doing them more regularly. This is what the Hell I looked like behind my table:
A big highlight for me, which is the reason for the art style choice in this comic, was meeting Tony Millionaire ofMaakies fame. I’m a big fan of his morbid humor, which is probably obvious by my own. He was very approachable and talkative with his fans, which is something I haven’t always encountered when meeting my idols. After getting a signed copy of The Maakies Treasury I got the dude behind me to take this picture:
Probably won’t be back to APE again, but we’ll be keeping you guys posted as we decide on what shows we’ll be at next year.
