Check it out, add it if you want, ridicule, whatever you kids do these days.
Cool stuff comin' up in the future here. Keep an eye out.
There are some things in the works which I can speak on later, again I will announce them here, so look at that consistency!
Beyond that, PAX went fine, things are fine, hope you are all fine.
Going to PAX this year? I am!
I will be there with Red 5 Studios, presenting Firefall. Stop by and say hello if you are around! I won't be working the booth constantly, but I will be around at certain scheduled times. I can post those when I know 'em for anyone who wants to say hey.
BTW: 'hey' does not mean a punch in the gut. So there won't be any confusion on that point.
There was a ton of cool shit all over the show this year and I actually managed to get around as see some of it this time ,haha. Ended up going around Seattle to spend a ton of cash on really great food as well.
Hope everyone who went had a great time, and hopefully some of you were able to swing by the Firefall booth when you were there!
Did a quick art dump..don't get much time to work on personal art anymore what with so much work at the game studio, so I tossed some stuff up here to fill the gap.
Was at the Penny Arcade Expo and it was quite the weekend. I had a great time and thanks to those who I met up with at the Red 5 Studios booth, and triple thanks to Jim at Udon and Kris Aubin, I owe you guys big time.
We presented our game Firefall for the first time ever and the response was extremely positive. It's truly inspirational and makes it all the more exciting to be working on. For those who haven't; check us out at www.firefallthegame.com! Registering on our forums also enters you into the beta pool.
I'm not much of a convention guy, but it was really a lot of fun...now comes the waiting to be able to buy all the sick games that were there. Gonna be working my ass off this year and I am really looking forward to it. Now to try to rest up a bit 'cuz I naturally caught the con crud as soon as I got back.
See you there.

<img align="center" alt="Shit tons of hats" src="axerindustries.com/hat.jpg">
I am totally going to sit in front of you in a movie theater with this on.
I had no input on what it would be so I was as in the dark as anyone else.
They added all 3 prizes (1st - 3rd) as regular hat drops/craftable hats as well, the regular versions just do not feature the placing ribbons on them and also have different names (mine is "J.Axer's Dapper Topper").
That is all!

I wanted to thank everyone who said thumbs up, congratulations, etc etc etc for my entry grabbing 1st place. I appreciate it, very cool. I wanted soldier to win, and now I contributed 50,000 kills without having to play at all, hohoho. (In actuality it was even worse- I was one of those asshole medics that kept kritzkrieging soldiers).
Also, to everyone who is pissing blood over it, and thinking 'oh no the guy does furry art oh no' haha....you're spending more time thinking about it than I do. That just makes it cooler. Relax a little. Don't be so mad about shit that doesn't matter!
So thanks again, it was fun to have a more directed reason to do a poster, and it got soldier out of the way. I'll post it up here tomorrow probably. Eventually I will paint up a scout one, and then a huntsman sniper or something to complete the set.
P.S. I don't know specifics on the prize thingy- I haven't received an email yet.
Keep it classy, people!

Other conventions may change, but it looks doubtful. Just a heads up. No real reason, I'm just not much for conventions.

"Ok so Next month is Angry Viking Press' Big debut Month. We will be in the hew "comics" Catalog by Haven ( www.havendistro.com/) and Enemi (enemi-entertainment.com/). With your fan support we at Angry Viking Press can and will bring you comics from artists you know here on DA and around the net. However again it can only happen with your support.
Since the New catalog from Haven and Enemi will also debut in May, many comic shops don't know of it yet. A shop can't order what they don't know. This is where your support and help comes in. If you buy your comics in stores, go to your local comic shop and let them know about Angry Viking Press, and also let them know about Haven/Enemi. The new Catalog features a cover by Neal Adams (major artists for the 70's era style of art on Batman, Superman and Green Lantern)
In May we will have a small launch with 3 Titles focusing on Andorozon #1, Coco Gun Bun#1, and Demon Mages #1. If that luanch succeds it will be fallowed by 2nd issues of the titles just mentioned, and a Revamped Crushed #1, Speed Demonz #1, Babes of the Beach #1 (with #2 to fallow) and the long awaited return of Extintioners with Extintioners #16 in full color. Colors are being done by Sonic Artist/Colorist Matt Herms.
With your support we look to luanch in September 2 Specials with Babes of the Beach #2(Sci-Fi) Ebony Furs, as well as our core titles released in May and July.
Also in the Future we plan to release Former Sonic Artist Jeff Axer's Graphic Novel and the Return of Chisuji. With the potental for much much more down the road like Stellor Warriors, Striker Amazon, and Ronzo Murphy(Shownuff)'s Squeek and Shred and others I can not yet (but would sooo love) to mention.
So go on and help get the word out at your comic shop to order the Enemi Catalog, or make an order yourself and make yours Angry Viking Press!"
