almost made itWow, am I beat. This last weekend I attempted to do a 24 hour live stream of making Balls 2 That comics and doodles for anyone in the chat ... I made it almost 23 hours, but seems not resting up the day before did not help. I passed the fuck out.

But it was a hell of a lot of fun. This last year I set myself do do more adventure comics rather than short strip comics and while they were better in production value I found that they were not as fun to comment on and keep up with as they were uploaded. Audience participation really dropped off. And really if you're gonna do anything online, that is really the biggest part of it all. So this last weekend of getting to reconnect with the readers of my comics was amazing.

We did a donation drive to help raise some money for new equipment for the comics. My computer is hilariously out of date. We were barely able to stream at all. We did raise a fair bit of money, almost enough to get me the computer I will need, but hopefully now as con season has started, we can raise a few bucks more and get up to date on hardware.

thank you so much everyone who came out and supported us. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
And as soon as I can set up a better computer we will definitely make live streaming more of a regular thing. Hope to see you there.

24 Hour livestream / donation driveSo we are doing a 24 hour long livestream of comics on the Button Mash. I would love if you would come join us.

We are doing a wee bit of a donation drive for new equipment. My computer may make comics, but it is also comically outdated and even just setting up the livestream was quite the undertaking. For most of the five years I've been making Balls 2 That comics, we haven't had a donate button up, which turns out, is how people wanted to support the comic. So to make up for the last five years we are doing a donation drive and see if we can't get some new hardware to keep us in the 21st century.

So pop on by, say hi, give me some drawing ideas, get drawn into a comic, get some give aways, and donate if you can.

Getting Pumped Up!!Fuck me, Emerald City Comic Con is this weekend. Unfortunately I can't attend this ECCC, but still, its now the start of convention season! And as usual, I'm completely unprepared. Fortunately Jose and Enzo and Josh are helping me out.

This weekend I may not be at a convention, but you can still come see me make some comics. I'll be doing a 24 hour long live stream / donation drive for Balls 2 That. Saturday at noon to Sunday at noon. And already I'm getting of lots of ideas of things I'd like to do with anyone who would like to tune in. ( I will post the link on Saturday before noon)

Going through a bunch of my stuff and looking for giveaways and things I can draw. Any ideas of things you'd like me to see / do?

D&D fifth edition DMThis last weekend I gave D&D 5 a shot as dungeon master for the first time, with Grail1313, AbyssGk and Count3D. I just got all the books thanks to OboeCrazy.

and my first time could have gone better, as I lost my patience a lot and acted like a dick. But it also went pretty well, we had a good start to an adventure I wrote myself. Not only just wrote it up, but I bought a bunch of minis for NPCs and built a lot of wee little sets to play on. That part I think turned out alright. I definitely will try to do more of that for our next adventure.

Keep Moving ForwardThis last Monday I launched a new comic project, but due to sad news I felt it best not to promote it just then. But I would like to keep moving forward as Monty would say.


its a webcomic of faceless color themed troopers in a war that allows for a fair bit of comedic back and forth...( I may have stolen a few Red vs Blue ideas )
But also like Red vs Blue this comic is based off a real videogame you can play. I've been making some good friends at Z2 (the creators of Battle Nations)
I've been a big fan of the game and have been doing a fair bit of fan art, so why not take it that step further. There are a couple comics already uploaded, so please surf through the whole site if you can.

Please, join me for the comic and join me to play the game. It's available on Steam, iOS and Amazon.

also, I am the leader for the Rooster Teeth guild on Battle Nations, its open for anyone to join.

I'd love to hear your comments, please write me and let me know. I'm looking for as much feed back as I can at these early stages.

remembering Montyas much as Monty was a creative inspiration, I don't feel so creative today. I'm just gonna mope and be a wee bit sad for a bit.
Though we weren't the closest of friends (due to distance) we did get along quite well and I really liked hanging out with him. He was just so pumped up when we hung out, it was hard not to be enthusiastic around him.
I'm really gonna miss him and I'm gonna be sad for all the things he was going to do, as he can't be.
Though whatever energy he had to make crazy exciting things he's left if for us to use. And I will. Just not today. Maybe tomorrow.
