Other Ventures.

In addition to creating motion graphics and illustrations on the computer, we also moonlight as a tiny, independent publishing company.

Our first book is called The Little Guy and the Creature. All the illustrations were made by hand using watercolors and micron pens.
You can find it here and locally around Portland at Tender Loving Empire (if there are still copies left - they've almost sold out).
