EyeofSol Season 5 Premiere

The popular and hilarious animation review series known as EyeofSol has reached its 5th season! For the new season, Sol decided to update her production to include brand new custom animation sequences. We’ve recently had the honor of working with Sol to update the What a Bee! Studios logo design, produce the logo intro, and produce the first segment of EyeofSol’s new opening sequence.

You can check out our work on the logo intro here (featuring our very first cat animation!):


And here’s the portion of the opening sequence that we produced:

This was a very cool little project to work on and we look forward to teaming up with Sol again in the future!

Sonic Mania Released Today

Sonic the Hedgehog has been one of our favorite games ever since the very beginning of our Sega Genesis days, so when we first heard about Sonic Mania, we were extremely excited for a Sonic game for the first time in a very long time. 

Sonic Mania is a throwback to the original games (long before Sonic and friends went through the bajillion transformations) and it dwindles the main cast back down to simply Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles. We feel that this game is going to do incredibly well since it’s going back to its roots and recapturing the magic that made the games so popular to begin with.

The news of the game even came with some incredibly well animated promotional pieces, such as this beautiful Pre-Order Trailer:

This trailer is actually what first blew our minds about the game in general and got us super excited. But then on top of that, they had also released the equally beautiful launch trailer:

Which was more of a reminder to be stoked about this game. The beautiful animation in the launch trailer is also from the game’s actual opening, which was also released to keep us drooling:

We are sold. We’ve been sold a long time ago, but we are like super duper sold. We absolutely love the inspiration behind this game, as well as the creative direction taken (using amazing animation from the incredibly talented Tyson Heese and the absolutely perfect music from Hyper Potions).

We’ve been extremely excited about this for a long time, and we’re happy to say that the game has officially been released TODAY! Available now on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch with the PC version being delayed, but coming around the end of the month.

Mojo Coffee Company


Got Mojo? Well, the Mojo Coffee Company sure does, and boy is it delicious (seriously, it’s really good). 

Last year, we had the honor of helping Mojo Coffee Co refresh their brand with a fancy new logo. This was our first time designing for a coffee shop, so not only was it new and exciting to work on, but it allowed us an opportunity to explore a fascinating industry. We were given great direction, and at the same time we were allowed to implement our own ideas in a meaningful way. It was a very collaborative effort that resulted in a logo that we’re all proud of!

Check out these awesome photos from the cafe!

Kingdom Hearts III 2018 release date, reveals ‘Toy Story’ World

Today at Disney’s annual D23 Expo, it was announced that the long-awaited and highly anticipated Kingdom Hearts III will be released sometime in 2018. On top of that, it was revealed that Toy Story will be one of the new worlds to visit! This has been a dream scenario for not only fans like ourselves, but director of Kingdom Hearts himself, Tai Yasue.

The reveal came in the form of this new trailer:

This is huge, as it marks the first time that Pixar (rather than Disney) is collaborating with Square Enix in the Kingdom Hearts universe.

We are very impressed with how well the Toy Story world and the characters look in-game. It literally looks like you’re playing some AAA Toy Story game on PS4. But that’s one of the qualities about Kingdom Hearts that made us fans in the first place. Disney and Square Enix go above and beyond to capture the essence of the original films to a point where each world feels authentic and not like some attempted imitation. This harkens back to the very first Kingdom Hearts, which we were able to play the day it was released and have been hooked ever since.

We are extremely excited about this and can’t wait to get our hands on Kingdom Hearts III next year!
