All baby cows are lost

I spent a totally unjustifiable portion of my weekend playing Boom Blox. (Warning: seriously noisy website!) I'm not sure which part of "block throwing simulator" required the extensive cinematic and narrative expertise of Steven Spielberg, but it's hard to argue with the end result. It's a complete blast to play -- especially in co-op -- and is one of those rare completely original gameplay experiences enabled by the Wii remote.

It's not entirely without it's creepy factor, though. What is this society of incredibly cheerful rectangular animal people? And why do they eagerly encourage you to remove pieces of the teetering, perilous block constructions that hold up their children several stories above the ground? "All baby cows are lost!", the game cheerfully exclaims in reponse to your cattle infanticide. Brr!

Obligatory Poster/Print update: the limited Conscience Cat prints are now one third gone. If you're interested in nabbing one, they're available either on their own or as a part of the fabled poster multi-pack. I'm always happy when prints and posters get a good response... it's always nice for an artist to actually gets to, you know, sell some art!

Folks have sure been coming up with lots of curious sayings for their Conscience Cat prints. A couple even came up with what I think is a pretty brilliant alternative to the personalized message... if you nabbed a print with a blank sign and had it laminated, you could basically use it like a whiteboard. Quite frankly, the idea never even occurred to me! But blank prints are available for anyone who wants to try it themselves.

Anyhow, that's a wrap for "Stockholm Syndrome". Our next story begins on Monday. (And it's a biggie.)

Keeping posted

After much hoo-ha, the two new posters are now on sale. Also up for grabs are the "top secret" limited Conscience Cat prints that I made for Emerald City Comic-Con.

As you can now see, the "unusual" thing about the Conscience Cat prints is that the sign is blank. I thought it would be fun for me to hand-write in a unique "moral" for each one. Folks with something specific in mind can email me their suggestions, or if they are feeling dangerous, can opt to have me surprise them. You can also request the classic "career" moral, or even a sign that has been left blank... if you want to be boring.

Anyhow, all these goodies are now available in the store. And if more than one catches your eye, there are also a variety of combo deals that will let you nab some or all of them at a discount price. (Including our older "Fight!" posters as well.)

Stockholm Syndrome wraps up on Friday. But as always, bigger things are ahead!
