Trevor's Treasure Trove

The internet is full of amazing treasures.  My friends and I used to share these treasures with each other with this awesome application called Google Reader.  It was kind of like a "Blog of Blogs".  A little site that would host everything non Kraken Studios related that I found to be amazing. I even had a secret link at the bottom of this blog so strangers could get in on all the awesome treasure I came across.

Unfortunately Google removed the sharing feature from Reader.  Hopefully They'll bring it back some day.  But for now, to fill the gap, I started a Tumblr page called Trevor's Treasure Trove.  It's not as convenient or awesome as sharing through Google Reader was, but I really want my friends (and you!) to see all this fun I keep finding online.

So if you like video games, kaiju, old comics, toys and other really important adult stuff, check out my tumbles.

GORBOT... DESTROY! Game Sprite Update Number 1!

GorBot! Destroy!

Concept art for Kraken Studios' first video game - GorBot! Destroy!

Gor used to be 100% Gorilla. He was the most feared beast on Voodoo Island. That's saying a lot because Voodoo Island is covered in scary monsters. (Much more on that later).

Gorillas are always hungry. Gor was no exception. One day with no bunnies or bananas in site, Gor ate a box of hand grenades he mistook for fruit.

Gor exploded.

But wait! A dark figure cloaked in mystery saved and rebuilt Gor.

Now with oil pumping through his gorilla heart, machine guns for arms, and a body of steel... GorBot LIVES!

Also - this is a long ways off but Kraken will have a table at the Geek Girl Con in Seattle this October and also at the CTN Animation Expo in Burbank this November. Mark the dates now!

Everything that was for sale at the show will be available online within the next couple of weeks. I'm going to give the website a good spring cleaning and set up a proper shop as soon as I can.

Two Posts. One Day.

Print number 3 in the Thurston Roscoe Project.
Photography by Dan Cole!

These squirrels sat on a shelf at my Grandma's house for a long long time. They didn't really know what to do or where to go after she passed away a few years ago. I told them they could crash with me until they found new digs and they've been camped out above my fire place ever since. I think this photo shoot is the first time they've seen real daylight.

ECCC Details

Ahhhhh Crap. I made a pinky swear and then blanked. Well now you know that pinky swears mean very little on Kraken Island.

Thank you for forgiving me so quickly.
Business time.

WHAT?! - Emerald City Comic Convention!
WHEN?! - THIS WEEKEND!!! (March 4th - 6th)
WHERE?! - Washington State Convention Center at table H 13

Then you say... "But Trev. Why should I come visit the Kraken booth?"

Then I say... "Well. Do you like friendly Hawaiian greetings and SUNSHINE?!

Aloha Sun T-Shirts hand screened on high quality American Apparel shirts is the answer.

Are you extremely emotional and wish you had a cartoon rabbit to wear on your chest to tell the world your feelings so you don't have to?


Bunny Buttons are the answer. Now in a refreshing 6 pack!

No boats floating yet? Well this is going to knock your flips off. I heard you dream every night of being a art collecting GIANT.

New MEGA MiNi Prints is the answer!
They're TINY.
They're extremely unLIMITED.

Hand signed and numbered because I needed something to do!

Wait! MORE. You just got a B- in gym class and want to display it properly for Mom and Dad.


Over sized acrylic Bunny Magnets is the answer!
Your refrigerator is going to look 10 years younger. DOUBLE pinky swear.

Wait. I just realized you probably don't like to pay money for things. You should STILL come.


Official Kraken Studios buttons is the answer!

I'm going to just give you one of these even if you don't want one, so clean out that pocket lint and make some room!"

Hey! My friend Doug is going to be at the table too. He's a fancy artist so get your expectations as high as they will go.

Did I forget something? Probably. Come by the show and tell me what it was!
