Year of Luigi
Nintendo announced recently that Luigi will be getting quite a bit of due attention this year, declaring 2013 to be "the year of Luigi." First he'll be staring in the Luigi's Mansion sequel for the 3DS, then he will be a big component of the next Mario and Luigi RPG on the 3DS. In the RPG game, Mario will enter Luigi's dreams where Luigi can be as awesome, if not better than, his overshadowing brother. Poking and prodding Luigi's face on the touch screen will also alter the dream world, allowing Mario to proceed through obstacles. And if that wasn't enough, there is a new DLC package planned for New Super Mario Bros U which basically adds an entire game's worth of new levels exclusively to be played by Luigi. Pretty solid stuff, Nintendo. Now say that 2014 is the year of the Peach!
Mississippi has finally ratified their 13th amendment, a motion to abolish slavery written back in 1865. The discovery that the amendment hadn't been passed came about when 2 academics decided to look into the status of the amendment after watching Stephen Spielberg's Lincoln. When it was discovered that the amendment had never been ratified, they contacted Mississippi's secretary of state, who arranged the passage of the bill on Feb 7th. Better late than never, right Mississippi?
My picture of Flutteryshy as a Crystal Kingdom Knight was featured on Equestria Daily yesterday. Thanks to whomever submitted it there, I was quite surprised to hear it was featured at all.
Adventure Time Progress Movie!
Sorry it took so long to complete, but here you go! You can see the progress of the Adventure Time illustration from start to finish now. Yay! Obviously to not bore anyone to death with the 8+ hours of drawing that I livestreamed, I flipped the video upside down (to be right side up for the viewer), sped it up, adjusted the clarity, and edited it much much shorter so you at least get an idea of what it was like. If you're masochistic enough to want to watch the full unaltered 8 hours you can do so on my Ustream account here: www.ustream.tv/channel/andy-s-…
In the meantime, enjoy the edited for time and entertainment youtube video!
