Krosp is in the Catamancer Game!

Soooo…the folks with the Catamancer online card game (now in Closed Beta) have shared the art for the Krosp card with us, and given us permission to share it with you!krosp-1The whole game is looking hilarious, and really, really gorgeous, and we’re tickled to death that they asked permission to include Krosp. Here he is close up:krospSo regal. Heh.

The Second Medal for the Kickstarter!

One of our stretch goals was to do a second medal for the current Kickstarter campaign. Well, we met it, and now I’ve got the design finished. Cheyenne made it look all nice and 3d, and the pin manufacturer is working on the real thing. Here’s the concept art!medal_concept02

If you haven’t yet backed our Kickstarter campaign, remember that it ends on April 12. Thank you, everyone! –Kaja

Here’s Phil’s valentine present

K, I promise not to make this a cooking blog, but I need to show off the Valentine’s day present I made for Phil. He’s been out here in Seattle for a long time, now, but he does miss Chicago style pizza. This one came out looking so lovely, I had to post braggy pictures. I meant to post this back in February, but I got kind of busy!

Phil will be in Los Angeles next weekend!

 

2016_wonderconPhil will be in Los Angeles next weekend–WonderCon has moved, and he’s really looking forward to seeing the new venue. He’ll also be at the Masquerade, as usual! We have some free bookmarks in honor of our current Kickstarter campaign for the latest Girl Genius collection, so if you’re at the con, stop by the table, pick one up, and say “Hi!”

Learning Video Production

In the next few days, we’ll be launching a Kickstarter campaign for the latest Girl Genius collection, and this time, for the first time ever, I am the ringmaster project co-ordinator. In the past, we’ve always had someone helping us by overseeing the project. Also in the past, we’ve always had our videos done by the amazing James Ernest over at Cheapass Games–but this time I’m doing it myself, with some nifty After Effects work Cheyenne put together. Not because we hate James’ work (far from it!) but because he’s busy, we’re on a tight schedule, and really, a person should know how to make her own videos.

SO, I’ve been learning video editing in Adobe Premier Pro. It’s really interesting, and really fun, and, thanks to Ashley Kennedy’s tutorial course over on Lynda.com, fairly easy. (I wanted to make sure to give her a shoutout, because I am appreciating her help so much right now, it’s almost painful. Also, thank goodness for their 10 day free trial.)

But “easy” in this case doesn’t mean instantaneous, or without stress. Lots of stress. Diving into something completely new like this is unreasonably scary for me, especially when combined with a deadline. I comfort myself with the thought of all the things I’ll be able to do when I’ve got my video skills more finely honed. I have a whole list.

Ah, well, back to work…
