Lastly, is the most exciting bit of news for us. Life Meter has seen
print! UK video game magazine Edge has picked Life Meter as its
website of the Month in their current (April) issue! Thanks go to
Mark Kelly for the heads up. Here's what they had to say:
Showing all the same inspiration and artistic vision that Raina Lee's
1up 'zine and the iam8bit show have bought to the community,
Lifemeter editors Zack Giallongo, Dave Roman and Stephanie Yue
have created one of the interent's premier showcases for game
related art and comics.
Though still in its early stages, Lifemeter grows daily with
submissions from a dedicated group of indie artists from around the
world, all sharing their takes on their favourite digital worlds. Thus
far the submissions seem to rarely stray from the classic Nintendo
panthenon, perhaps proving the 8bit system's influence on a
generation of budding artists. But already the site shows a diverse
range of reactions to the subject matter, from standard gag comics
to Jose Garibaldi's silent telling of a Mario called to action and the
princess he leaves behind.
Go buy it now!
Weerd!! Props to Dave Roman and the lifemeter gang. The site is
dope. Also on the blog are works by my boys Scott Ruhl and Elio.
If you want to peep the story mentioned above, follow the link.
Also, big up to Shaughn Struble, for originally publishing the story
in the 2004 issue of A United Front.
For the record, my favorite strip on that site is the one with Mario in
the frog suit.
Also, to any of my UK peoples: Is there a way someone could get
me a copy of this edge mag? I'll compensate you for your time, cost
of the mag plus shipping, etc. Hit me up and let me know. Thanks!!!
