Sorry it’s been quiet around here lately! The Pocalypse Defense 2 has taken the front seat and, unfortunately, The Pocalypse scenes have to move to the back temporarily. I’m not going to put the comic on hiatus or anything but I am predicting a pretty decent slowdown. Luckily, TPD2 production has an end in sight and the comic does not so The Pocalypse will one day take shotgun again :D (Is “shotgun” an international term? Here, we yell “Shotgun!” when we want to claim the front passenger set in a car :D)
Thank you to all the avid comic readers who are patiently putting up with this slowdown and I hope you can wait until October 9 for Chapter 8 to start :D
Why October 9? Two reasons:
1) It gives me time to create Chapter 8, Scene 1, while still keeping TPD2 production a priority.
2) StartOff voting begins and we are going to need your votes! Now, unless you paid very close attention to a previous blog post, you’re probably asking yourself, “What the heck is StartOff?”.
StartOff (http://www.startoff.ca) is an start-up entrepreneur contest being held by the Innovation Factory, a small business mentorship company based in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada (where Green Pixel is based!). In order to promote and reward local businesses, Innovation Factory is giving out some pretty awesome prize packs to those businesses that can gather the most votes during the StartOff competition. The top ten winners receive a $16,700-worth package of business-related services that will greatly help Rich and I take Green Pixel and The Pocalypse even further :D
I laughed to myself when we found out that the theme for StartOff was retro gaming and game art. While other competitors have to find creative ways to incorporate the theme into their voting campaign, I just have to keep doing what I’m doing! Pixels are my paint! Fortunately, the theme isn’t something like “Trees of the Amazon” or “Sauerkraut Sandwiches” so I guess we got lucky! We’re also very lucky to have an existing international, supportive, and amazingly incredible fanbase to pump Green Pixel full of votes :D
So! Remember that October 9 is the start of Chapter 8 and the start of StartOff voting! Thank you so much for waiting!
Oh, I also have to start selling these posters! More on that later! :D
