#1 – Derrick Rhodes

| November 1, 2011 | 0 Comments

Derrick and his brother, Eric, are fish out of water in the towers of Megatrix City.  The city, which calls musicians from all over the world to come play, has taken a swing for the electronic in recent years – and the two jazz-loving brothers don’t quite understand all the wub-wub-wub of the clubs there.

That said, they found their calling opening the Honey Bee, a little piano bar downtown that does just well enough for the both of them to live well.

Derrick is the younger sibling, but was worried that Eric, on his own, wouldn’t have been able to sustain the Honey Bee.  So he brought what he could: himself, and his bartending abilities, and his worn black fedora.

He also has been experimenting with ways of making that jazzy music he loves a little more club-appropriate…

30 Characters Challenger: Drew Marie

| November 1, 2011 | 0 Comments

 Hey there, folks!

My name is Drew, and I’m a fourth year CS major.  I was torn between Nanowrimo and this challenge this year, and because of some major time crunches going on right now (can you say grad school?!) I figure this might be the more doable challenge.

I’m a writer and an artist, and thus also dabble in the graphic narrative realm, but I have yet to finish anything, really.  I figure this is a way to flesh out some characters in a world I’ve created that stays near and dear to my heart, and perhaps get the ball rolling on a webcomic I wish to start!  So, my theme is going to be Music Genres.  That might sound funky, but you’ll see what I mean when I start sketching.  And there are -definitely- 30 music genres out there.  Heck, I could probably come up with 30 within the “electronic” subset alone!

I’m a bit behind already (what with only posting my information today), but I’ll catch up.  I’m looking forward to meeting awesome people, so feel free to say hi!  🙂
