That’s right, 10 years ago we created our very first animation with voice over. We did this as a test for our first full blown cartoon concept known as 2nd Avenue. Check out the video below to see the very first piece of animation and voice-over that we’ve ever done.
We are often asked about the state of 2nd Avenue and if there will ever be any new episodes. For those of you wondering, you can rest assured that you haven’t seen the last of 2nd Avenue.
She has done it again! The incredibly talented Allison Frost designed and sent us another amazing pair of 2nd Avenue-themed shoes! Check out the awesome new 2A Chucks below!

We absolutely love them and can’t thank Allison enough for devoting her incredible talents towards designing these. They are truly remarkable!
Allison Frost had recently designed some very cool 2nd Avenue themed shoes! Sporting the main characters of the series, Allison managed to not only capture the essence of 2nd Avenue in general, but she managed to add her own spice to things that fits perfectly into the 2A world. Check out the images below if you haven’t already!

Thanks so much to Allison for her incredible and inspiring contribution! We are absolutely in love with them!
We thought that it would be neat to show off some of the awesome projects that we’re currently working on. We can’t show too much (as it’s all still work-in-progress), but you should still be able to get a pretty good idea of how things are looking. So without further ado, lets take a quick look inside the studio and see what’s cooking!
Our new website has been in the works for a while now. It’s basically a more structured/simpler version that eliminates Flash and uses PHP, CSS, and HTML in its place. This should make for a much more efficient experience. At the moment, we’ve finished the layout and we’re just about to get into designing the final header graphics. We still have quite a ways to go before this new version of our website is ready to go live.
For the last year or so, we’ve been designing a series of product boxes for Nova Loops. This has been a constant flow of work, and will most likely continue to be for a good while. These are digital packages, meaning they aren’t physically created, but we still design them with that capability in mind. The product boxes basically represent the certain types of downloadable content that is offered by Nova Loops.
For the last year, we have been designing and creating artwork, animation, websites, physical books, and much more for
Sunshine Kids Worldwide Love Kids Worldwide. Since most of the work is still in production (and being set up for distribution), we can’t say too much more about it at the moment.
For the past two months, we’ve been working with one of the writers/creators of the hilarious bound-for-television show, “Slou Foot & Doucha”. We were asked to create the intro for the pilot episode, which consists of live footage and some animation. This project in particular has been quite the challenge for us because we have never really worked with so much live footage before. With that said, there have been a lot of trial and error, but we’re getting the hang of it. Currently we’re waiting for some updated footage from the colorist so that we can finalize our creation. Also, we were recently asked to create the ending credits (since they loved the intro so much. Yay!), so we’re just getting started on that. The deadline for the overall project is closing in fast, and hopefully we’ll get what we need soon so that we can proceed with our part.
We are currently designing a few logos too! Some are simple, some are complicated. Of course we can’t really show them until they have been finalized and protected from the infringement ninjas, but they will be in our portfolio eventually.
We’ve also been designing t-shirts! There will be a series of designs created for a couple of new clothing lines that are sure to take the world by storm!
Go-Go Ninja is a highly potential animated series that is being produced in-house. Originally announced back in 2008, we are taking our time with its development. We love trying new things with every single project that we work on, and this has not changed with Go-Go Ninja. The visual style that we’re hoping to achieve is brand new to us and we’re still in the process of research and studying new techniques. So, as we expand our minds to the furthest reaches, we hope to properly bring Go-Go into the world with a bang!
2nd Avenue is by far the biggest project that we have to work on. It takes a lot more time and effort to develop, and we usually find ourselves with little to no time to give it that proper attention. But alas, we’re hoping to change that. 2nd Avenue Episode 3 has been in it’s planning phase for a good while now, and the wheels are starting to turn on preproduction. There is no telling when or if this episode will ever see the light of day, but we will do our best to bring it to life.
That’s about it! As you can see, we’ve been keeping quite busy but it has been a blast utilizing our creativity so much! We hope to continue this trend in the many years to come!
With the countless last-minute revisions made to episode 2, a lot has changed since our PART 1 article of making 2nd Avenue Episode 2. This new write-up is to update you on the journey that has been taken to create what is now known as, “Pwned!”
