Woo boy, there has been a lot going on. And I think we're finally ready. Let's start off with a little honest heart to heart. As much as we love doing this, for the past few years it's been our side gig. With us both working full time jobs there was never really time to do much more then prep for C2e2 and then go back to the grind. Now we're at a point where we have both left that behind in order to better apply our skills to the art world. But, man, this has been a TON of work that I really wasn't prepared for. We still have commissions from LAST years C2e2 that are in process and that just isn't acceptable. The website has been an absolute bear to deal with since neither of us are tech savvy. Our comics are coming along, and we have some other really awesome projects that should be really cool! I guess I just thought all of this would be easier.
So, what have we been doing since the last blog post (oh man, October?) well everything above. I've been trying to get commissions done, we've moved all of the furniture in our house to make it a better work space, the website is ready; I'll call it edition 1.5; and we're elbow deep in the other projects. Again, i thought it would be easier. But, like in every other blog post, there is a lot to be excited about.
So, let's break it down:
Commissions, if you have a commission pending with us, I swear to you you will hear from me next week. I have redone a couple and i think you'll all be really happy with them. We will be getting these done and out the door as quick as possible as we know some of them are Xmas gifts (good for you for planning ahead, sorry we've been so unorganized)
Other projects: Well I don't know if I can talk about them, but they are outside of our regular stuff, and I think that once they are completed they will be AMAZING!
Streaming: we are going to be streaming the art, I tried doing some video game streams, and while we'll probably do some more video games we're going to be focusing more on the art. That's going to mean we'll have the time to talk to the people that watch us, and we'll still be doing work to progress our art. I'm not very good at being personable like Danielle is, but hopefully you all wont mind seeing my mug from time to time.
Comics: We are working on Rocket Mouse and Tails from Out There constantly, and we should have at least one issue from each ready for sale at C2e2.
Finally, the website!
I have spent two months trying to get our webstore up and ready. We've gotten samples of every item of clothing and print qualities and I am proud to say that we are OPEN! We have a selection of tees and hoodies, hats, and prints. The prints come in two qualities with both being ones that we have shown at past conventions. And the clothing is stuff that we wear on a pretty regular basis so we're comfortable with putting it out there as quality product, just know if you buy a shirt or hoodie that it will smell a little vinegary when you open it, I think it's the printing process but it goes away after a while. Check it out on a computer, for some reason the mobile versions will work, they just look wonky. We're trying to figure that out too.
And that's it. We love this, I just wanted to let you all know. For those of you that have stuck with us through radio silence, flighty brains, conventions, and through the years. We can't have done this without you. And we want to be better for you. At the end of the day we love hearing from you, seeing your reactions to the mice we've put out there, and getting to be surrounded by so much good juju.
See you, Space Cowboy...
