Looks like my April Fools joke went over pretty well. I was quite surprised to see the response, honestly! Was it the most original prank in the books? Absolutely not, but considering that I usually ignore April Fools Day and that people STILL believed it, I think it's alright. Sometimes the oldest jokes are the best and it's not like this was a contest trying to outdo everyone around me. Just having some fun for a change, which is something I need to do more often.
Also, it shows how many people actually followed the link. Anyone who read the journal and followed the link to the trolololo song would've known it was a joke. But it seems a LOT of people didn't bother doing that, hehe.
Speaking of April Fools though, did you know that it was 4 years ago today that I began the Alex Ze Pirate web series? April 1st, 2008 was the day I began posting short one page gags involving my pirate characters on SheezyArt. It's kinda hard to believe it's only been 4 years as so much has happened since then. But then again it's hard for me to believe it's only been a year since I started SYAC too...
In other news, I'm almost done working on the SYAC poster and a short SYAC mini story that will be sold at the MCM London Expo in a few months. I've been struggling to get this poster finished for a long time now, mostly because the file size is so big it slows down my computer and makes it difficult for me to experiment with the lighting and stuff.
Speaking of the MCM London Expo, a few weeks ago I applied for my passport. The turnaround time expected was 4 to 6 weeks, which would've put it right before the convention and I was getting nervous something might go wrong and I wouldn't get it in time. But lo-and-behold, I got my passport in the mail this week! So now it's official! I will DEFINITELY be going to London this year! Woo! I'm really excited, especially since I'll have a few days after the convention to sight see. I'd love to go to Ireland since our family actually has a castle there, but I don't think we'll have time or money to fly around that much. I know I've gotta stop by 221b Baker St though...
I might do a Light VS Dark battle in Kid Icarus tonight. I dunno yet. It all depends on how much work I can finish today. I'll keep you all posted!
Happy April 1st everyone!
