Don't forget to pick up a 2009 NG Calendar while supplies last!
Wired.com put out a "best of 2008" and Castle Crashers won 3rd best Xbox 360 game of the year, one spot ahead of Gears 2... Which is crazy talk but hey I'll take that!
Today's Wacom tablet winner is Kenzu!
Kenzu is a very unique contributor, who travels the world and makes Flash based on themes such as socialism, communism, foreign cultures, languages, etc.
Kenzu's contributions go way beyond Flash, however, as he has made a great personal effort to unblock Newgrounds in China. As many of you know, Newgrounds is blocked in China (they hate our freedom). Rather than just complain about it, Kenzu contacted the Ministry of Information, which decides what websites are to be blocked. During a stay in China as a student, he even went as far as to make a personal visit to the office of foreign affairs to seek attention to the matter.
These were risky moves, as voicing opinions that go against the Chinese government can be grounds for immediate deportation. NG is still blocked in China, but things are slowly loosening up over there and some day a bajillion more people might be able to visit NG.
Kenzu has a special project planned and would love to draw it with a tablet. He's also very handsome! Congrats on the new tablet, Kenzu!
I'll be posting every day from now until Christmas Eve, with daily Wacom winners and other assorted news.
Luis posted a new theme for the Weekly Animator Flash-Off taking place on the Flash forums. Heavy concrete blocks, what now?
