Challenge: fantasybigbang 
Title: Hidden Magic
Author: merigreenleaf 
Artist: jack_spire
Mixer: skylar0grace 
Summary: Meren, an unusual elf girl (and her more unusual centaur "brother") take up the task of hunting down a band of orc trespassers. When she stumbles into a pitfall, Meren finds an object: an amulet that gives strange new powers. Little does she know that an increasingly desperate young wizard is looking for the very same amulet, and that their paths are destined to crisscross in a weave of chaotic magic...



'Amemba me?  My fiancée, merigreenleaf, has been trying to get me back into cartooning after a long period of taking care of other, more important business.  Natch, I'm rusty.  Anyway, she laid down a story for fantasybigbang and I volunteered to do an illustration, so presented above is Meren and Kryro.

If you'd like to check out the story, here's the link to part one.  There's also a music mix to accompany it, put together by skylar0grace, which you can get here!

It's been one year to the day since I produced my first real overproduced comedy sketch, Skeletor's Meeting.  For those of you who know what I'm talking about, why don't you go listen to it?  For those of you who don't, why don't you check out 2mustaches ?

So you'll notice there have been no Goblins in this space recently.

The reason for that, really, is that I have been working monstrous overtime hours since the end of November. As much as I hate to say it, I'm not Jeph Jacques, and I have to weave the cartoons in around everything else.

In addition, I've had some other recent concerns.  Natch, Two Mustaches takes up a little bit of my free time, and we've been trying to hold regular D&D sessions (which seems to be a losing battle, but we will persevere).

At any rate, the other shoe finally dropped and I have to move out in order to save my credit rating and the box of He-Man action figures I have in my closet.  I'm unloading as much junk as I am able, and the rest is coming with me (hopefully in a greatly diminished travel size).

Hope is not lost!  GLT will return soon with some fresh stories and characters (I owe xlshadow 'The Greatest Igik Stories Ever Told'), and I'm hoping that freeing up resources will permit me to work on another new project.  The podcast will continue, as well; if you haven't heard the latest Dos Bigotes yet, it might be worth a listen.  I think so, but I'm on it and very heavily biased towards my own genius.

Pray for me, wish me luck, send me dinner and buy my damn couch.

I wasn't sure what I wanted to do for today's, so I let it wait 'till this morning.  Fortunately, I got it done before 11:00 am.

I hope you all enjoy Thanksgiving wherever you are, and I hope you listen to the Alice's Restaurant Massacree just as many times as I do today.

I think the panel with the kobolds is delightfully cluttered, don't you?

Awwww, you didn't think I'd miss Halloween, did you?  Left to right: He-Gik, Samurai Gork, Jason Blarfhees, Mr. Boss.

I've got one in the chute for Monday, plus some guest stuff.  Keep bettin' on the goblins!

Hmm... Igik may have some competition for "new all-around favorite" since Blarf showed up.  I think my original idea was to have Boss leaning against a stump or a tree or something, and somehow I just never added it.

I found out today that my pay is being cut by 10%.  Apparently this is a nationwide thing with our corporation, whose name I shall not mention.  As a result, I am looking for a new, more profitable job.  If any of you know someone who will pay me 70k a year to act, draw, write, perform tech support, read Shakespeare, dig up Shakespeare, or perform heavy lifting, lemme know.

An aside to my friends: Be warned!  I may act really, really cheap for a little while, and expect autographed pictures of Igik as Christmas presents this year.

As for my job, well... I can only hope that they are doing with that 10% what I want them to do with that 10%.

Blarf, a/k/a "Positive Outlook Jones", has, if anything, the best attitude one can have when one is about to be inducted into such a group, and will probably do well here.
