News and Game Update

Happy Thursday!

Here’s some news on what’s going on in my part of the world.

I was recently invited to be interviewed for TV Tacoma’s City Line show. City of Tacoma staff will discuss the upcoming Arts at the Armory event and more. I’ll post a link when it’s available. I really appreciate the chance to share my work and the support shown for my latest project. It has been a great chance to take risks, consolidate different areas of expertise and skills, and learn new skills.

I am continuing to have fun building environments and sneaking in nods to my adopted home city. Check out some new progress in the video below.

Hi friends!

Thought I’d share some work in progress loosely based on one of my favorite Tacoma landmarks:

I have some exciting news to share later next week. Stay tuned!

Karaoke

New animation, which is the closest I should be allowed to doing karaoke.

Stickers

I ordered a test run of stickers and magnets through Stickermule, and they just arrived on Monday evening. I am happy with the results and can’t wait to order a larger run of stickers and buttons. In the meantime, I am looking at options for offering limited runs through indie comics, arts, and other stores. If you’re interested in selling No, Mine! Studios designs in your store, please feel free to email nominestudios@gmail.com.

Artists, if you have been thinking about getting some of your work printed through Stickermule, click here for a $10 credit. (Double check their site for limitations.) Their team was very responsive and easy to work with through the setup process.

As always, thank you for your support!
