About two and a half months ago, I announced my new employment at Motiga, an indie video game studio out in the Seattle area. Up till now, I haven’t been able to talk about the game we’ve been working on, but today we told the world!

Ladies, gentlemen, and esteemed persons, may I present to you: GIGANTIC.

I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that I am now a part of this incredible collaborative effort. The source material is absolutely STUNNING; anytime you see a character in a three dimensional environment in the trailer is our game. That’s what it looks like. It’s not even in alpha yet.

As for me, it’s my job to make the out-of-game experience as eye-catching and stylish as possible. The key art (pictured above and in the header of all our sites and social media platforms) and spot art illustrations within the site are just the beginning!

I can’t even begin to tell you guys how proud I am to be working here, and how excited I am for people to begin experiencing our game! And don’t worry; Motiga places a high value on its employees’ personal creative endeavors. Expect to see more Cloud Factory in the coming weeks!

Thank you!! And don’t fret, I’ve already got a table for this year and don’t plan on stopping B)

On Thursday, those of you who follow me on twitter may have noticed my casual announcement that I am finally MOVING TO SEATTLE. Hilariously, no one asked why. I think the general assumption was that it was just something I’ve been wanting to do anyway, which is true, or that it was to be closer to my Strip Search & Penny Arcade friends, which is also true.

BUT THERE’S MORE!

I have recently accepted a full-time position as an illustrator at Motiga alongside a team of insanely talented games industry veterans to work on a super awesome (and super secret) PC game. It’s my ultimate dream job, and I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that this is a real thing that is actually happening, but it is! And I start on Monday!! EXCITED YELLING!!!

Yeah, okay Lexxy, that’s cool and all and video games are pretty great or whatever I guess, but what does this mean for The Cloud Factory? Worry not, for TCF will be resuming as planned after Kickstarter fulfillment (which is in its final stages!) is complete.

SEE YOU ON THE WEST COAST, NERDS!

Hey there, con-goers! I’ll be tabling with some of my fellow Strippers at PAX East next weekend, so come find me in Bandland for:

  • Art Prints!
  • Sketches for Tips!
  • Preview of TCF Vol. 0!
  • Strip Search Pins!
  • Shitty Selfies!
  • Overexcited Conversation!

As much as I’d love to sell the Volume Zero books this time around, we’re still shipping to Kickstarter backers, so they won’t be available for purchase until all rewards have hit the mail. BUT, I’ll definitely have a few sample copies with me for peeps to leaf through.

You have to touch these books, the finish on the cover is STUPID NICE.

See you there!
