Ohmworld is now online, and these two updates have been posted!

Ohmworld-Have I Got a Story for You!  Part 1! by mosobot64 ohmworld.wordpress.com/2017/07…
Ohmworld-Have I Got a Story for You!  Part 2! by mosobot64  ohmworld.wordpress.com/2017/07…

Each update is going to consist of 5-6 pages, and will probably come out every month.  

Also, each story of this webcomic is going to have 4 updates-or a larger story split into parts containing 4 updates each!

You can find these stories, and some sketches, at the links below-just pick wherever you like reading comics the most! :D


Secondly, this summer I've been working an entry-level graphic arts position, and with it I'm getting the high quality printer, pin presses, and etcetra I need to return to offering art at the local convention scene this fall and upcoming winter and spring!  I'll keep you folks updated here and on my other channels as well!

Thanks so much!

My apologies for the sudden flood of updates folks!  I was just catching you all up on what I've been doing for the last few months.

Like I said, I update via Instagram ( www.instagram.com/mosobot64/ ) and tumblr ( mosobot64.tumblr.com/ ) more often these days, so watch those for more up to date effort.

Animation school is well underway again and I've finally been able to get some of what I've been working on to you guys!  I say some because DA won't permit me to upload non-flash, non gif videos for some reason, which somewhat limits the amount of actual animation I can send you.

Having said that, they're here:
  

Finally, remember that upcoming indie comic?  Well, it's almost ready to go!

Get ready, for OHMWORLD!!!

Well, welcome to 2017!  I know you're probably trembling from the traumatic brain-punch that was 2016 (unless you're a cackling alt-rightzi), but that's all behind us, time for the now.

I'm onto another exciting semester at my animation program!  The last one was one of my most successful college semesters ever, for the simple reason that I was thoroughly engaged with the work.  This semester though, I've got even more classes, so I've got a lot of work to do.  I hope to post some of the animation work I've done here on DA before things get too busy, though if you're following me on Instagram and/or tumblr, you've probably seen most of that already.

In the interest of getting actual comics work, I'm also creating a new web/indie comic.  I'll keep you updated on that as well.  Again, watch my tumblr, folks!

Finally, I joined the mobile community Amino, just in the past week or so.  Essentially it's a app dedicated to highly active fandom hubs-if you're involved in the Cartoon, Comics, Steampunk, Dieselpunk or Adventure Time hubs, you'll almost certainly see my occasional fan scribblings at some point or another.

Keep an eye on my gallery, folks, and Ciao for now...until the next sporadic update!

Alighty, gang, I've known this for a couple of months now but I wanted to save the news till I got everything all sussed...

Starting September 6th, I will officially be part of Capilano University's 2D animation program!

As you may know, Capilano University is a North Vancouver based campus with an excellent reputation, particularly in Vancouver's animation industry.  After 2 years of being rejected from Capilano followed by 4 years of slowly working through whatever art classes I could find, I believe now I will finally kick my art and animation skills into high gear!

As I've said before, updates here on DA will be relatively sparse, but updates will nevertheless appear-I have no plans to totally abandon DA.

So catch you on the flipside folks, and if you want to see more, follow my Instagram and Tumblr (below), if you haven't already!  Ciao!

-Mosobot64

(PS: This does effectively cancel any long-form fanwork I had going, so no more fan universes for a while.  I'll still do originals when I can, though.)

Since the holidays (and since no requests came up), I've had a bit of a funk.  I'm dissatisfied with the more academic university studies I'm currently pursuing, and thus definitely want to take another crack at going to a more dedicated art technical school, particularly for animation and by extension, other forms of sequential art.

The thing I mentioned over the holidays about forms is still true, and thus I will continue to work on that, as I have at an accelerating pace, both to build my portfolio to put in a good bid for animation studies, and to improve my art in general.

Here's the thing: After 12 years, DA is just NOT my primary art site anymore.
Both Instagram and Tumblr have far exceeded my devianart in terms of content and regularity of posting.

There are a few reasons for this:
1) Convenience
   On Instagram in particular, I can pretty much take a picture of whatever I'm working on and post it immediately.  Deviantart doesn't have that distinction.  Also, anything I post on Instagram I can also immediately cross-post onto my other social networks-this to an extent is true of Tumblr as well.  On Deviantart, any cross-posting I do has to be done manually, and even then I often have to adjust things like tags after initially making the post.

2) Audience
   You folks here on Deviantart are great, but as the holidays showed, you're not very vocal.  Feedback on my other social networks I can see more or less immediately, and even though it's not huge I still get more feedback elsewhere than I do here; probably because my audience finds Tumblr and Instagram more convenient than Deviantart as well.

3) Time
   Probably the biggest reason of all.  This does tie into both convenience and audience above, but the fact is that I can only manage so many different platforms so quickly, and Deviantart takes a significant amount of time for me to manage!


Now, as a consequence of these things, my Deviantart account is not and no longer will be the main focal point of my artistic endeavours online.  Having said that...

New artwork will still be posted here.  Just not all of it, and not all the time.

If you're following me  here on DA, you'll still catch wind of my bigger projects, just not as often.

For quicker updates, follow my Tumblr ( Mosobot64.tumblr.com ), or my Instagram ( instagram.com/mosobot64/ ).  You'll get more art from me sooner that way.

See you around, gang!

PS. I have a Rick and Morty fan universe in the works and if you're following me in the above social networks, you already know about it!  Rick and Morty C-007!  100 years! :XD:

Self Critique and Plan for Progress

Sat Dec 5, 2015, 5:57 PM


Pleasure to be back again.  Hope you didn't miss me too much!

I've been looking through some of my art lately and I've noticed a theme; while stylistically, my art is very adaptable, and my rendering isn't too bad, there is something of a critical flaw in my work, even recently: my forms NEED work.

Part of the reason for this problem is that I've consistently been badly subdivided over the last few years, and so have been consequently rushing through the structural integrity stages of my art-making process.  This isn't unsolvable by any means, but now that I've spotted it, I need to take steps to correct it.

The good news is that for the first time in quite a while, I more or less have a holiday season by which to do it.

The better news is for you guys:  In order to spur improvement, I'm going to open up 5 FREE REQUEST SLOTS for you good folks to request, well, anything you want!

Here are the rules:

1) Form has to be at least somewhat challenging.
No slimes or snakes or other obviously easy forms to make.  I need to have a challenge here!

2) Monochrome only.
In the interest of keeping the focus on forms and making the images in a timely fashion, I'm going to do black and white work only for these requests.

3) If you need an OC or fanart, please link to references.
Obviously, I need to know what your character request looks like.

Finally:

4) SAFE FOR WORK ONLY
If you need porn or other not safe for work material, you're going to have to commission me.  Requests I intend to publically display.

I'm going to wait 1 week for requests at this journal.  If my request slots aren't filled by that time, I'll take this to the forums.

REQUEST SLOTS:
1)
2)
3)
4)
5)

Cheers, folks!  I love having ya!

School, Son! Also, A Band! :D

Fri Nov 6, 2015, 4:37 PM


    Like a few of my other journal entries, this is yet another instance of me try to catch up rather than really do something new per se.  But in actuality, it just so happens that I'm up to a bunch of new things and just haven't had much of a chance to talk about them until now, because my life has been surprisingly nutty.

    My new school, SFU, has been a blast.  I now have a dedicated studio to work from, and have been doing some pretty good art projects as of late.  I've also been spending more time doing that stuff and connecting with my fellow students, not to mention learning how to transcribe music pieces in my music class, than online per se lately.  I owe you some of my new work, I have plenty to post.

    Additionally, I've been in a three piece band since January of this year, and we're starting to write original material.  In addition to that, I'm coming up with a cartoonified version of the band that can have wacky adventures or something.  So I'll have to post more about that, too.  The band, by the way, is called Tredd.

    Finally, I've been doing the iconography for a fantastic monster smashing game called Kaiju-A-Gogo, available on Steam.  Look it up, it's city crushing fun!

    Now add on top of that other jobs and more concept art for my fantasy world, Tales of Cascade, not to mention artwork related to my Judeo-Pagan spirituality.  Yup, I'm sorry to have been offline, but to be fair, I did have good reason.

    Oh yeah.  I got a Rick and Morty fandom going too.  Gonna do fanart for that...

    But anyway, here's the plan.  Over November and especially December, I'll be posting all my art over the past year, in batches.  One week, you'll get Kaiju A Gogo, another, Cascade, and another, spiritual stuff, and other, school stuff.  I've got a lot to post, but the plan is not to post it all too quickly, so you'll have time to digest it.  I also plan to reorganize my folders, so once again, older work will be available, but a little less accessible.

Yet another small piece of news:  I have an Instagram account!  Primarilly, I post pencil sketches on it, but I'm there often and hope to see you there!  instagram.com/mosobot64/

Okay, I do believe that covers it!

Playing the Catch-up Game

Tue Mar 24, 2015, 4:03 PM


Okay, gang, I've left you in the dark way more than I should have, especially considering that I still count you all as my artist buds and this IS still my main art portfolio.

Here's a brief list of things that I've had happening:

-Moved up into University!  Namely, Simon Fraser University.   As a fine art student there, I've been spending most of my creative efforts lately devising new material as a student there.  So far I've had some good stuff to show for it, but it has pinched my time online somewhat.  I'm also studying music theory and mythology, among other things, while I'm there...more on that in a sec...

-Made a large number of icons for an awesome indie city-smashing game called Kaiju A Go-Go!  The icons themselves will be posted after the game's release, but needless to say, that'll be quite soon, so I'm excited.  More info on that here:  www.facebook.com/pages/Kaijuag…

-Created a new three-piece rock band called Tredd!   Currently we're practicing covers, then hopefully we'll start writing original material and doing shows.  When that happens, I will let you know.

-Got a part-time job at a cafe on the downtown eastside (Vancouver's version of skidrow), to be me somewhat monied, but much better inspired and informed.

-Got waaaaay into developing my spiritual life, and started blogging about that.   stoicjewitch.tumblr.com/
Because of the sheer amount of development I've put into that side of me, you can expect a lot more spiritual art and iconography like the Elemental Hamsa I posted coming in, but don't worry, I'll continue making fantasy art and posting that, and I'll also get around to posting my school stuff sometime.

Alright, I think that covers it.  I'm getting ready to wind down the semester at school; once that happens I'll be up to lots of arting and music-making, some of which will appear on my soundcloud and Society6, so keep an eye out for that!

Thanks for bearing with me!

Okay, THIS is the New Year

Tue Sep 23, 2014, 9:38 PM


Wow, you'd think after dropping an entry back in January I would've actually tried to act a bit more on my promise to post stuff, huh?

Well, I have a pretty good reason for that.  At least I'd like to think so.

I spent the last 8 months working like crazy, getting in shape, working on my music and social skills, doing spiritual research, and in general, I think I ended up doing everything but art.

I'd say some words about wallowing in self-pity, and I did, and I admit it, but I also made very sure I cried no more tears that I had to.  And when everything was said and done, I got the funds together for my first term at a new university, with my very first music class and a couple of art courses to boot.

I'm back, baby.  I've got so much more to inform my art than I ever did before.  Will there still be fantasy?  No doubt I'll get back to it.  But first, a spiritual urgency, a smattering of monster icons (that would be another game-related thing I'm working on), and I deluge of prints.

Well, if I get the prints up by the end of the year, I'll be pleasantly surprised.  But the rest is DEFINITELY happening.

Oh, and happy Jewish New Year in, like, 2 days.

Bye for now!

New Year, New Notions

Thu Jan 9, 2014, 4:56 PM


Well, the last year has come to a quiet close, and I'm in a decidedly different mentality this year.

I've been cutting back on internet arguments lately, and focusing more on doing stuff that actually improves me, like painting, writing, and learning music.  I've got lots of new projects that I'm excited to be working on and will hopefully be able to post soon.

In general, I'm less interested in fighting battles, and much more interested in just being creative ol' me.

Stay tuned.

Hehe, how's everyone doing?  I'm still working quite hard on school stuff.  You'll notice I've been putting up a lot of concept art for my new project, Tales of Cascade, lately, and I'll write another journal for that when I've got more of a central site and/or merch for it.

For now, though, I have another topic in mind.

Today, I read this crappy bit of news: www.aljazeera.com/news/europe/…

While the signs of this happening have been around for some time, this event was particularly ugly.  The beat down of folks from other parts of the Soviet Union, in conjunction with the pre-existing beatings of LGBT Russians, and the jailing of punk artists like Pussy Riot, makes one thing abundantly clear.

Russians have decided that they'd like to be Nazis.

For those of you who know me from my arguments with :icontd-vice: in the past, I think you're already aware of my view on this.  But for those of you who aren't, I'd be happy to lay it out.

In World War II, Nazi Germany's hatred for the Russian people grew so terrible that it broke its treaty with the country and invaded.  As a result of the invasion and the subsequent beat-back of the Germans, the Soviets lost over 8 million people, 5 million from Russia alone.

Germany's hateful policy also cost it over 4 million lives.  But I digress.

Any white majority country who sees these numbers and then is fool enough to actually take up the belief system that caused these deaths to occur is, as far as I'm concerned, a traitor to the white genome.  Ideologies created in the name of "preserving" so-called "white supremacy" have cost whites more lives than every other ethnicity on this planet put together.  Only a fool would take a nationalist system up with such data available.

So, in no uncertain terms, Russian fascists, TD-Vice included, are fools and traitors to their own race and country.

Too bad my evidence won't do anything to change their treacherous ways.

A Long Awaited Update

Tue Oct 15, 2013, 7:51 PM


Hey folks, it's kinda been a long time.  My 10-anniversary of being here on DA passed back in May.  So I'm a reaaaaaaaaaally old DA user now.  Neat huh?

Anyway, I'll give you guys some much needed quick nuggets of info, just to let you know that I'm working on hard and getting through school, not being dead and stuff.  Kay?

1) I was a douchbag for precisely 1 comment.
I think it's important that I address this: comments.deviantart.com/1/3717…

Context is: I got pissed off because he was blaming people running a marathon for charity of all things for obscure acts of war committed by the US government years ago, and saying that the people who died in the Boston bombings deserved it by extension.

I'm not gonna apologize for getting mad at him.  That was completely justified.  However, I will apologize for blaming the entirety of Russia by extension for his behavior, because I basically did the same thing I got mad at him for in the first place, and even if I was doing so as a thought-exercise in order to prove a point, there's no getting around the fact that genocidal rage ain't cool, alright kids?

On a side note, I'm not commenting on other people's political shenanigans for a while at least.  Frankly, I have better things to do with my time, so while you will see me express my very pro humanist socialist democratic anti-racist views, I'm gonna spend more time acting on them for the benefit of mankind than wasting my time pontificating on the internet.  Oh, and I definitely won't be arguing with THAT guy again anytime soon.  Clearly I gotta check my civility.  Mmmyep.

2) I play bass now
Nah, I haven't quit art or anything, don't worry.  I'll post some new stuff later this week.

But seriously, I've been practicing bass for months now, and now I'm finally competent enough to play with other folks, and seriously loving it.  In general, I've been a lot more sociable lately; that's actually the main reason why I haven't been posting as much. ^^;

3) V-Con happened
I've got a commission or two to finish, but in general it was slow for everybody.  I'm hoping to make up the difference at Canzine West next month.

4) Happy late Thanksgiving, fellow Canadians!
I hope you guys had a great thanksgiving dinner!  I know I did.

Alright, it was nice catching up with you guys.  Hope to see you in my comment section. :D

Happy Easter, Folks! (Also, news)

Sat Mar 30, 2013, 9:16 AM


First of all, I'd like to wish a Happy Easter to everybody here on DA!  I hope you folks have a ton of fun, eat a little chocolate, and of course, dye hard.

Wait, what?




1. An Interview!
I recently got interviewed by :iconsci-fan-horror:'s own Rama-Kay!  She asked me some pretty great questions about art, what I'm doing, and why I'm doing it.  If you were ever curious about what materials I use, why I've been on DA for nearly a decade, or why I'm an artist at all, this interview should help answer your burning questions.


2. North Korea's Throwing a Tantrum
Well, I'm sure I'm not the first one who's covered this, but since Kim Jong Un took over Korea, the whole country appears to have been throwing a bit of a temper tantrum.



Here's their official "declaration" of war, though keep in mind they've already technically been at war for over 60 years: www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/w…

Here are two things to keep in mind:
1) While North Korea does have at least a few nuclear missiles, they can only go so far.
It's estimated that North Korea's missiles could only go as far as Hawaii (If even that far), and while that would be bad for the tourism industry (not to mention the folks living there), it's a far cry from hitting the White House, or even a particularly significant military target.
www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/w…

2) North Korea is vastly outnumbered.
Let us not forget that NATO still exists.  Even if North Korea were able to stub the toe of the US, as it were, by doing so, it would only successfully incur the wrath and ire of every nation its allied with via NATO, namely Canada, Britain, France, and many other, more capable military powers.
And since North Korea is an established dictatorship, these nations would not hesitate in acting to bring the North Korean regime to a long-awaited end.

Now, granted, if you live in South Korea, the next few months are going to be uneasy for you.  It's my hope that you guys get through this with a minimum amount of casualties, and get to actually live as peacefully as you ought to have been able to for the last 60 years.  But know this, you guys have one, incredibly important advantage that North Korea does not.
You've got allies.


Anyhow, that's it, for me!  Have a good weekend everybody!

News! The Early March Edition

Sun Mar 10, 2013, 10:55 AM


While there are some things I need to catch up on doing (Like relaunching my features request topic on the forums), I have been up to a bunch of new things lately.

1. The Pit on Steam
That's right folks, SOTS: The Pit, the game I posted all those animations for, is now up on Steam! store.steampowered.com/app/233…

Much like the launch on Gamersgate a couple weeks back, The Pit is on sale on Steam during its launch week.  If you're a Steam user with a hankering for Sci-Fi (I know I am), hit the link above.  If you're not but know somebody who is, send it to them.  You won't regret it.

Oh, also, the Pit has now been reviewed by a number of gaming sites, so hit the links below if you'd like to know more about the game before either purchasing it or sharing it:

Total Biscuit's WTF Is: www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qstol…
Game Banshee: www.gamebanshee.com/reviews/11…
Game Podunk: n4g.com/news/1189683/sword-of-…
Gamezebo: www.gamezebo.com/games/sword-s…
No High Scores: www.nohighscores.com/2013/03/0…

2. My First Semi-political Rant
The video below is more about Hollywood and its lack of respect for their own artists, than anything else, but some ranting about race issues and the like are apparent there as well.



If you'd like me to continue talking/ranting about stuff like this, please let me know either here or in the comments section of the video itself.  If you've seen me talking to TD-Vice  about this sort of thing, then you know that I've got pretty strong opinions and a lot of data to back them up.  So, the long and short of it is, if you're interested, show your interest, and I'll keep talkin'. ;)

3. Hey!  It's ENIGMA!

igg.me/p/344830/x/359797

I can't get a ton of info about this project, but it is being done by a fellow indie comics artist, ebony-chan, and equally important, if this campaign gets supported, it'll be work for one of my favourite DA-based partners in crime, Dualmask, who will be lending his highly developed sense of colour to the project.

From the work of these guys, it's pretty safe to assume that whatever else ENIGMA is, it'll be a gorgeous-looking project.  Show your support if, like me, you'd like to make it happen!


4. For the Sake of Fantasy
The admin in charge of :iconfantasy-fellowship: here on DA (Which I'm also one of the senior moderators on), took a really bad fall recently and broke her hip.

Since she lives in the States (The land of non-existant healthcare), she needs help getting back on her feet, and back to fighting the good fight against sex trafficking.

The original journal documenting this more thoroughly is here: fantasy-fellowship.deviantart.…
Her indiegogo can be found here: igg.me/at/helpingravyn/x/35979…


Annnnnnnnnnnnnnd, that's all for this week, folks!  Thanks for reading again, oh, and comment below if you'd like a feature!  Ciao!

You can find it here on GamersGate! www.gamersgate.com/DD-SOTSPIT/…

In any case, folks, you're in for a treat.  There are a grand total of roughly 70 monsters in the finished game, loads of items, crafting recipes, and challenges for your character to face.

I'll be posting some of monster animations I contributed to the game over the next week, folks, so be on the lookout for those.

Have a great day!

Whelp, looks like I owe you guys yet another apology for not keeping you up to speed, though to be fair I've still been replying to messages and stuff, just not as quickly.

First up:

HAPPY LATE VALENTINE'S!
That's the first big one.  I hope you guys had a great Valentine's, whether you had a loved one or not.  I was in the latter category, but I still had a little chocolate and baked my folks (and also my friends) some Valentine's day sugar cookies.  Good times.

BIRTHDAY SHENANIGANS!!!
Today's also my 22nd birthday!  Woo!
I'd like to thank everybody who has already sent me birthday wishes, and also thank you in advance if you're sending me one as well.  Today I've got a modest party of friends coming over, we'll be hanging out and eating a little cheesecake.  Also, presents. :meow:

WHY I HAVEN'T BEEN UPDATING
Essentially the reason for this is that I've been working as hard as I can on the Pit, which as of now is coming out in a mere week. sots-thepit.com/
Thankfully, the animation for it is largely done, there are just a few things left to polish up, and on release of the game, I'll post all the stuff I've been working on here.
Check up on Gamergate and the like if you'd like to buy it when it comes out.

Secondly, more stuff related to what's currently known in the gallery as TOP SECRET PROJECT that I've been working on will also be posted next week sometime. :D


Alright folks, that's all!  Have yourselves a great one!

Merry Christmas, hohoho!

That's right!  Break out the eggnog, party tunes and mistletoe if you haven't already!

I wish you all a Merry Chrihanukanalia, and I hope everybody has a great time.

As for me,  I'm just hanging out and catching up on a little art. :meow:

Today was unusually busy for me on the social justice front. (Which, as you may know, I usually don't get too heavilly into.)

The most important, though not only topic that came up was the use of the word "rape" in gaming.

Read up and educate yourself: www.kerberos-productions.com/f…
www.guardian.co.uk/society/201…
makemeasammich.org/2012/06/28/…

The thing is, I might be preaching to the choir here but there are a lot of people out there that do experience rape in a serious real way, all over the globe, of any gender and race.  Rape is not a word to be used casually in gaming, and it's not cool if one of your online friends says it.

So if you hear somebody talking about rape in a "joking" sense, call 'em out on it.


Second is the concept of the friend zone.  This is another construct that people make out as a single gender thing, but again, it's universal.

Text wall after the jump here: mosobot64.tumblr.com/post/3768…

However, if you want to skip the text wall, here's what I had to say on the matter:
Alrighty, here's my bit.  Some of what you folks read above I agree with…and quite a bit more I disagree with.

Here are my three thesis statements for this anecdote.

1) Media does not accurately represent real life.

2) Female/male friendships = male/male friendships = female/female friendships, ergo most terminology translates well between platonic relationships.

3) Friendzoning isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Now here's my anecdote to back up all three theses:

Back in high school, I met a cool dude who would become my best friend/rival/partner in crime for the next seven years.  We had a lot in common, we went to the same school, we loved drawing, and we loved videogames.  As a female/male friendship goes, we had a great time and we never had any trouble with misogyny/misandry.  All was well.

Of course, me being a young high school teen, I was pretty excited about getting into a relationship and maybe experiencing this "sex" everybody was talking about.

So, I asked him out.  He said no.

The reason he gave for it is the exact reason that usually comes up in an opposite gender situation, he thought we were great friends and he didn't want to mess it up with a romantic relationship gone sour.  We stayed friends; it was groovy.

Fast forward a bit to the high school prom.  I now had the good fortune of having met another handsome nerdy guy who was also interested in me romantically.  My best friend was also there, and as a happy family of three friends we attended the prom and had some fun.

A couple of years later, me and my other geeky friend broke up.  We're still friends, but the relationship is a little strained.  We argue a lot, and despite our best efforts, bitterness from both sides still emerges from time to time.  We're getting better, but its tough.

But my best friend is still relaxing to be around, and we're still great friends.

The lesson here is that friendzoning isn't necessarily a bad thing, and it can happen with anyone.  My friend made the call with this friendship, and honestly, it was worth it.  I sure don't regret seven years of good times.

As usual, stay calm, have good friends, and happy holidays.


I don't want to say that people are making too big a fuss over this, this is an interesting cultural matter that deserves debate.  However, I do want to take the time to remind you folks out there that media isn't the sole dictator of reality, or even the biggest one, and sometimes things aren't as bad as they seem.

Or as lonely as they seem.

Remember to see your fellow human eye to eye.  Also, commit a random act of kindness today.

That is all. (Mostly)

Next thursday, I'll be showing some paintings in person at Langara College's Artfully Yours event here in Vancouver: mosobot64.wordpress.com/2012/1…

In addition to my stuff, loads of other talented Langara students will also be exhibiting there, so I reccommend heading on down!  It's just 15$ at the door and it'll be awesome!


In other news, I was trawling Facebook today when this awesome video showed up.



If you didn't have time to watch it, the video has three awesome african dudes puncturing Hollywood Stereotypes with a smile.  They're all reasonably successful college students, and judging by the increased internet traffic in general, these guys are not an anomaly.  Keep that in mind next time you assume that Africa's just full of despots and victims (Assuming of course, that you actually assume that.  Not everybody does.)

Lastly, I'm down to exams now, so aside from some animation work, I'm all set for the holidays, and they're already off to a great start!  Woo!
