Live Boop I haven't made the official announcement yet, but there will now be a regular schedule for my live drawing. The streaming days will be... Monday/Wednesday/Friday (I'll work out the best times for each stream asap) Tonight's stream is starting crazy late and this won't be the norm. Tonight I'm (finally) finishing the newest Goblins page. However, the visuals of this page are not very spoilery. It's the dialogue that'd be spoilery, and you won't see that on the stream. Warning: I have gotten a comically small amount of sleep in the last few days, and I know from experience, that I can seem a little... intoxicated if I'm sleep deprived enough. I've made a fool of myself before (more than usual even :P ) so to avoid this tonight, I'll be fairly toned down. I'm happy to answer questions, etc while I'm drawing. -Tarol

Two or three years ago, I ran a Kickstarter with a small gaming company called Evertide Games. Our goal was to raise $30,000 to create a Goblins card game called Goblins: Alternate Realities. We raised over $180,000 which the head of the company stole and disappeared with. Since then, I've been working two jobs. Drawing the comic and creating the card game. It's been rough and it feels surreal to say this, but I'm seriously almost done the card game. So I've been spending the last couple weeks burning through the last of the work on the game. I know this sucks for those of you wanting the comic to update, but just imagine... in (hopefully) another couple weeks, I'll be working ONE job for the first time in years! The comic can update faster! I can do crazy things like leave the house for non-essential reasons! So I've hired NaniRoxy (who happens to have his own webcomic called SwitchOut) to write and draw two guest pages for me. While these pages aren't canon, they're gorgeous and awesome. The second guest page should be appearing on or around July 14th. After that, I'll be back to work on the comic with the work on the card game (again, hopefully) behind me. As far as the release date for the game, that's still unknown. I've been in talks with people and I'm optimistically hoping to be able to provide a copy of the game to the backers who were promised one all those moons ago. I'm also hoping that the game will be available to purchase for everyone else. I've gotten my hands on the Kickstarter backer list (which was tough, since that legally belonged to Evertide as the KS was in their name) and if/when the time comes, I'll start the task of going through the thousands of names to make sure that the information is up to date and accurate. If you've moved, don't sweat it. We'll find each other. We'll make this happen and get you your game. For now, the focus is on finishing the artwork (which I'm proud to say, is hundreds of cards covered in original art), playtesting and design of the game. Later on, will come the 'hunt down every backer I owe a copy of the game to' phase. I want to stress that nothing is guaranteed at this point, but it's looking good. It's looking like this might actually happen. What amazes me so much, is the overwhelming support I've gotten from the Goblinites. When I held my breath and made the announcement that the money was stolen, I honestly thought that might be the end of my career. I expected a lot of hate and anger but instead, I got love and support. This is the reason why I've been working on this game like I have. The years of effort I've been putting into it is a direct reflection of your support, trust and patience. And now that I'm almost done this phase of the process, I'm genuinely proud of what this game has become. It's creativity and fun over profit and product. It's something I'm honestly excited about handing over to you. Thank you. -Tarol NaniRoxy's Twitter Tarol's Twitter

Hey people in the Brooklyn area!
A friend of mine just recently opened up his restaurant, Propellerhead! Of course, not being in Brooklyn, I haven't eaten there yet. So I've written up a review of the food, based on how I'm sure my eventual visit will actually go.

Tarol's Review Of The Restaurant Propellerhead

Recently, I got a chance to visit Propellerhead in Brooklyn. I was particularly hungry when I walked into the restaurant, because I'd just finished doing some 'extreme rocket gliding'. It's a sport I invented by strapping several large rockets onto a hand glider.

Most people can't do it.

I can do it.

I'm really good at it.

Anyways, once inside, I ran into Stephen Hawking who thanked me for helping him with some physics problems that he was having trouble with.

It wasn't long before I was sitting at my table and ordering the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich, but just as I was about to start eating, I got a phone call. When I looked to see who it was, I rolled my eyes in exasperation. It was Scarlett Johansson. Again. I keep telling her that I'm a married man and we can never be lovers, but the poor girl just can't help calling everyday and declaring her love for me.

I was about halfway through my lunch, when the restaurant was suddenly attacked by ninjas made of lasers and dragons. Everyone was terrified, but thankfully I'm an Epic Belt in Blur-Karate. It's like regular karate but faster.

Most people can't do it.

It can do it.

I'm really good at it.

Once I had beaten up the ninjas, I sat back down and finished my sandwich.

This has been Tarol's restaurant review.

(PS - Oh, and the sandwich was good.)


So if you're in the area and want to check it out, the address is...

752 Coney Island Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11218

Here's the Propellerhead website, but as the business is brand new, it's still under construction at the time of writing this.

Here's their Twitter, where you can take a look at the menu. Over at Instagram, they're propellerhead_bk

Thanks. -Tarol

I'm going to be off the internet grid for a bit. However, I have my brand new, portable drawing tablet and I'll be drawing while I'm gone, so hopefully I'll have postable stuffs once I return. Also, I'm going to have to turn off my Twitch bot while I'm gone. So DumbJarvis won't be running the chat mini-games until I get back. Apologies to my Twitch regulars. See you at the end of April! -Tarol

As most of you know, I have a real problem with time. Being swamped with way more work than I can handle is just second nature to me after all these years. So taking on new creative projects is next to impossible, no matter how much I'd love to do it. However, over the past month, I've been tinkering with a concept for a YouTube series. Well at long last I think I've succeeded in designing a series that I can add to at a fast pace, without taking on any notable amount of extra work. How is this possible? Drantings Drawing and ranting. Whether I'm live streaming my drawing or just listening to music and drawing alone, I've started recording the process. Then I just pop into Movie Maker, speed up my recording and then narrate a rant, story, etc. over the visuals. And poof, I have my simple, little YouTube series. I've got two drantings up so far and it won't be long before I add more. So if you don't hate the sound of my voice and would like to watch time lapsed drawing of Goblins panels, feel free to check it out. If there's any notable amount of interest in these, I'll keep 'em up. Feel free to let me know what you like or don't like about them and I'll pay close attention to your comments. Thank you. -Tarol
