Precious gems are on their way from all over the states, and even this piece of Magic all the way from the land down under. A Drizzz family Portrait by Mel Stringer. Fuckin' Stoked!
Now Brodarrfest U.S. is less than a week away. I remember the giddy feeling that this was all going to be really fun when I started drawing Jeff, and then his backstory started coming into focus. I had just a few early supporters that figured they would dive in at the time I put Jeff into production, and it sorta stayed that way for a bit. Jeff officially debuted at SDCC 2013 and I remember lots of folks not familiar with my toys gravitating toward him, but not yet knowing what to do with Jeff. And we zoom into the future to SDCC 2014 post kickstarter, but still the first public release of Quiller, Lonny, Kamisama, and Private Hooligan. The response was Awesome! Now there was a whole crew of characters to interact with each other, play, and love, and fight. The most awesome news about that first public release of the new gang was that there was no one character that everybody had to have. The surprise response was how many people dug Private Hooligan, a dude that was/is very real to me, but had just been sprung out there for people to dig or not dig.
Here we are June 2015, 4 new characters in the works. One of those, Drizzleshits, who is the third core brother along with Jeff, and Lonny, who will make his public debut at Brodarrfest U.S. this saturday at FOE Gallery in Northampton MA. this is also the first time that I get to have multiple peoples play with the gang, doing paintings, and customs, and I have that giddy feeling again.
