JENNEVIEVE SCHLEMMER:  Short Leg Studio will be at Geek Girl Con Sept 30th-oct 1st! [Also] Need Input! I want to create my first t-shirt to sell at Geek Girl Con, Jet City Comic Fest, etc,–which design of these do you think would work best? Or is there another image of mine you think would be better? Thanks!

BRENT ROSENBURGH: The video that I have my 3-second shot in is finished! Watch and support! For context, this is an old episode of the old show “Super Mario World” that had all of the shots cut and sent to 227 animators (myself included) to re-animate. Then the finished shots were re-assembled and put to the original audio from the cartoon.

COREY MACOUREK: 3rd episode of Lit’lFriends. I’ve got the 4th episode in the works and am considering uploading a shorter clip format to drop nonsense more often and make more spur of the moment silliness. Thanks!

RUSS RICHARDS: Hey guys! I’m excited to announce that I will be the artist at Friday Night Frights at Blue Mouse Theater on the 15th of next month. I get to create a piece for one of my all time favorite movies Army of Darkness!
