  • Hello Jim!  Thank you for contacting us (and Erik Mona for the referral).  We’re honored to have you join us for an exclusive interview about the new Paizo Pathfinder Comic!   Please tell us a little about yourself and how you got started in comics. My background is in art and animation. After working at a couple traditional (hand drawn) animation studios I could see the writing on the wall as freelance work became harder and harder to track down. That summer, killing time before I went back to school to learn computer animation, my friend Omar Dogan (artist on Street Fighter and Robotech comics) recommended me for a summer job working at the UDON studio on some freelance illustration […]

  • I never thought I needed a bluetooth headset until I got this little guy.  Man, what a cool little toy. I can listen to my tunes in the car through my stereo, on my phone, or via a pair of ear buds.   If I need to skip a track I can press a single button or hold it down to jump albums.  I can answer calls and speak directly through the tiny clip.  I honestly never thought I would want or use such a device until I tried this one. If you’re “anti-bluetooth headset” try this little guy out and it will completely change your outlook.   The Jabra CLIPPER Bluetooth stereo headset is now available in four new bright and trendy […]

  • Watches feature in almost every movie at some point, some are more pivotal to the plot than others, but they are always there. Here we are taking a look at some of the watches that feature in some of the biggest movies of all time, from the important ones, to the cool ones that you just can’t miss, like ‘James Bond’s’ super stylish Omega watches .

It’s no secret that some […]
