Sunday Mailbag- Empty!

November 29th, 2015 | Posted in Mailbag

Looks like it’s that time again… no questions to answer in the mailbag. I actually only have to post this maybe once or twice a year, and only because many of the questions I get are repeats of ones I have answered more than once in the past (I’ve had this feature running for over nine years, and this is the 450th “mailbag” post) or of the “please show me how to crosshatch” variety that are impossible to answer in a few paragraphs.

Sketch o’the Week- John Boyega!

November 25th, 2015 | Posted in Sketch O'The Week

I don’t know if you’ve heard about this but apparently there is a new Star Wars movie coming out next month. “The Force… something”. Anyway you’d think there would be more on the internet about it. This week’s Sketch o’the Week is of new Star War’s star John Boyega. I’d tell you this sketch is available in the Studio Store, and it is, but I’d advise you not to buy it. If I were you I’d wait until Black Friday… just sayin’. READ MORE
