Hi everyone!

In this mail:
New animation news
New shop news
Web comic reminder
Burnout Paradise claim to fame
Novel...?

***

New Animation:

It's been a weird few months for me, but I've had the time to make a new silly Mittens animation called Kitty Trunks:

http://www.matazone.co.uk/animpages/kittytrunks.php

***

New Shop:

I've set up a shop dedicated to selling the lovely corsets made by Snobz. The range is bang-up-to-date and I've got them all there, and I now sell the full range of materials too, from the usual black satin through to more unusual things like polka dot and pin-stripe. Check them out!

http://corsets.matazone.co.uk/

***

Web comic:

Trouble Down Pit, my web comic, updates every Monday and Friday. (There's an RSS feed for it if you like that kind of thing.) Currently I've got two things going on there. I'm nearing the end of my sci-fi retelling of Romeo & Juliet (which started back in July here http://comic.matazone.co.uk/2007/07/02/poem-time/ ).

I've also started a new character called Bunnyboy. He's been cursed to wear a bunny suit forever, but he's also immortal. He's not very happy about this and so keeps trying to find new ways to either get rid of the suit or to die. The Bunnyboy strips only started a few weeks ago but are likely to be a long-standing fixture of death on Monday mornings.

Anyway, keep dropping by for new strips!

Burnout Paradise claim to fame:

Some of you may remember that I got a job in game design last year. I was working on the game Burnout Paradise on the Xbox 360 and PS3. Unfortunately the studio had a wave of cutbacks just after we finished, and so I'm not there any more, but my name is in the game. If you drive on the South Bay Expressway (the big road with the long bridge that runs along the south edge of the map) and press up on the controller to bring up the 'Road Rules' scores then you'll see that 'Matazone' is the default score holder. smile.gif

If you have either a 360 of a PS3 then you can add me to your friends list. I'm on both systems as 'Matazone'. Maybe I'll see some of you online!

(While I'm writing, if there are any game developers reading this, preferably in the south east UK but I am flexible for interesting projects, and who are looking for a talented games designer then drop me a line.)

***

Novel:

I've written a novel and I'm currently editing it before showing it to agents. You never know, maybe my cyberpunk thriller will be in your local bookstore sometime!

***

That's it for this time! In summary:
Watch this: http://www.matazone.co.uk/animpages/kittytrunks.php
Shop here: http://corsets.matazone.co.uk/
Visit this twice a week: http://comic.matazone.co.uk/

Have fun until next time and, as always, if you like what I'm doing then please pass on the links to your friends!

I'm tempted to buy BP just to see that. tongue.gif

The fact that you included retro Mittens/Snowball links at the end was awesome. I usually like to watch all of the old anims in my spare time if I need a good dose of nostalgia - especially Mr. SB, those are genius. (as is the idea for Bunny Boy, I look forward to that.)

anyone else think McNerny McNerny is a very charming name?

I'm 95% sure McN is a member of these forums, and I feel very bad for losing the connection in my mind to whose username it links up with.

The link to the old stuff was put forward as being 'retro' partly to explain to new visitors why my old stuff isn't anywhere near the level of polish that is expected on the internet these days. Also, everything I make at the moment is partly a CV for me. Potential employers do tend to check my website before interviewing me so I wanted to highlight how old some of the animations on here are and the technical limitations that were involved back then. Sometimes I feel like I'm working on far too many levels, trying to make things that are going to please everyone all the time.

Bunnyboy started about a month ago, running every-other strip. Here's the first one: http://comic.matazone.co.uk/2008/02/11/bunnyboy-begins/ . There are another three online as I type this, and there's a new one ready to go online tomorrow (Monday) morning.

I always loved the Aeon Flux animations because they were happy to kill her off without any explanation of how she was back again in the next episode. I think I just wanted a character that I could kill in various creative ways. I guess it's a bit like a cross between Bunny Suicides and maybe Filler Bunny too, but there's no harm in that.

'Glad you liked the animation Daria smile.gif

I nearly fell out of my chair in excitement when I saw a new one online. biggrin.gif

Excellent, as always. I missed watching them, for sure.

Dude, is i alright if I just copy and paste what you wrote in the first post into the MZ Facebook Recent New thingy?

A society that takes itself too seriously risks bottling up its tensions and treating every example of irreverence as a threat to its existence. Humour is one of the great solvents of democracy. It permits the ambiguities and contradictions of public life to be articulated in non-violent forms. It promotes diversity. It enables a multitude of discontents to be expressed in a myriad of spontaneous ways. It is an elixir of constitutional health. J.
