In two weeks time, we'll be in California. I think Kelly and I are both a little conflicted about it, but it is exciting. Kelly really wants to stick around here with her family and I'm just terrified to start my first full-time job next to other professionals. It's really a big intimidating move - but I have to keep reminding myself how awesome it will be once we're there.
We're starting our drive on Monday with a planned four day visit to Colorado on the way. I don't know when the next strip will be, but I can promise it'll be made in California.
Wish us luck!

Bravest Warriors Space Whale
To celebrate my moving out to work on Bravest Warriors season 3, I figured I'd make a comic strip that can double as a sweet image! I really want a model of this ship, but for now I'll have to settle. Might also make this available as a print if there's any interest.

The 8-Bit Medics can not be stopped!
The guys have already cleared The Legend of Zelda and have moved onto Link to the Past! So far they've raised $660 for This Star Wont Go Out, ate some ghost peppers, and raffled off a tshirt!
They'll be continuing to play through the Zelda series all weekend as well as raffling offer tshirts (featuring a logo I designed), and 2 of my posters. Check them out, have some fun, and donate a couple of bucks to a good cause.
Looks like I'm moving to California! I've finally been given a start date on Bravest Warriors season 3, and we're making plans to head out west so I can formally join the rest of the crew in the Frederator office as a full-time background designer. I'm equally excited and terrified, but working on season 2 was the coolest thing I've ever done. Hopefully I wont screw it up!
If anyone is interested in a full color version of this comic minus the words, panel borders, and halftones - I'm working on it! I'm so excited I couldn't hold back and just really went at it. Also, I love space scenes. I hope I get to do a couple on the show.
(Can everyone please bug Frederator for a statue of the whale-ship?)

The 8-Bit Medics are a group of EMTs who work hard every day, on and off the clock, to help people in need. A few years ago they started a video game streaming marathon in support of charities, and now they want to make it a regular event!
Starting tomorrow, 8-Bit Medics will be livestreaming a The Legend of Zelda marathon in support of This Star Wont Go Out, a charity founded in 2011 dedicated to helping out the families of children who are diagnosed with cancer however they can.
The event starts tomorrow at 11am EST but you can donate now to help unlock more levels to keep them playing throughout the whole weekend.
I did a lot of work for these guys including this, a logo, and another banner which I'll put up tomorrow. During the event they'll be holding contests in which you can enter to win a huge poster version of my banners, or even a shirt featuring the logo I designed! It's all for a great cause, so check them out.
