On Character Design

This is a guest post by my talented artist friend Genesis Whitmore. I powwow with artists sometime and during one discussion the subject of people’s characters came up. I’m altering the specifics just in case someone is afraid I’m singling them out, but basically it came down to someone loudly insisting their character was unique

How I Almost Died Last Weekend

How I Almost Died Last Weekend

And then, from out of nowhere, the snow came.  We hadn’t even cleaned up from the party yet when the flakes began collecting on the leaves.  Snow this early always makes the best snowmen- mushy heavy, and packable.  If the trees were bare we might’ve spent the evening outside throwing it at each other.  Or

Photos from the 2011 VIP Beer Bash

The Beer Bash was absolutely awesome this year. More than twice the crowd of last year’s VIP’s showed up for 2011 and yet, somehow, we managed to feed and en-beer-inate all of them properly. Some of them came from as far away as Washington state, Louisiana, Florida, and Texas. One even came all the way
