News: August 30th, 2007

FIRST OFF – THANK YOU. Since Welcome to Pixelton launched only a few months back the support has been astonishing. Over 150,000 hits and growing this has been only the beginning.

News: August 30th, 2007

Do you like useless gadgets? I do. Really. So instead of mooching off the man I decided to make my own.

Weekly updates are no [...]

Happy Day of Country-wide Work

Welcome to Pixelton Timelapse Drawing Movie ( Comic 24 – Hatjinks )

News: September 5th, 2007

If a picture is worth a thousand words, is a movie worth a thousand pictures? And if they call films pictures does this negate any extra credit they would have semantically received? Hmmm. I’ve started recording some of my comic pages and speeding them up as this is more entertaining then not. I always thought [...]

Free to be Owned

News: September 7th, 2007

I woke up this fine morning and did the usual. Ate some Trivial Pursuit Pop-tarts (the answer was Moby Dick), stared at the vapid morning shows, and then I hopped onto my computer to begin my work day. My tiny dog shuffles back into the room I came to avoid me.

An Enchanted Island Map

News: September 12th, 2007

Check out an early draft map of the enchanted Pixelton island (home of discarded 8 bit heroes)! I’ve been working on this for a few weeks trying to pack a ton of detail in with the hope I can use cropped sections in comics down the line. That said – I’m really enjoying putting together. [...]

A Favor

News: September 16th, 2007

Hi everyone – I have a favor to ask. Last night my grandma passed away. She had been fighting congestive heart failure and then Alzheimer’s Disease all which appeared out of the blue less then one month ago. I’ll be taking the next few days off to be with my family but return midweek once [...]

The Pixelton Times – September 24th edition

News: September 24th, 2007

The crowds peering through the window are anxious. What does this week hold? Is there a funny comic in store, or will it be another one about the tree pirates. The suspense kills me. Ouch. Grr. Ouch.

I Can Has Google?

News: September 27th, 2007

Nope. No I didn’t. I didn’t just start off this article with a pop-culture reference. The next thing I’ll be mentioning the dramatic chipmunk as a factual recreation of Halo 3′s ability to destroy my productivity. BUM-BUM-BUH! [ Focus Farkas ] *AHEM* Hello humans. Do you have a website? Chances are you do. And what [...]

Rough Animation Test using Toon Boom Studio

News: October 1st, 2007

If I were you I wouldn’t believe me. I wouldn’t believe that I’m working on multiple Pixelton animations with studios across the world right now. I wouldn’t believe that they could join to tell a unique and engrossing story. I wouldn’t believe that the upcoming Pixelton graphic novel has a secret so daring that it [...]

A Pixelton Graphic Novel Preview!

News: October 2nd, 2007

When I started planning the real Welcome to Pixelton book, it hit me that I was about to drop about 20k of my own money into a sink hole and never see it again. That is pretty much what publishing is like – you’d be better off selling blood then selling books. And that is [...]
