To anyone who remembers the classic Lite-Brite, it was quite simply one of the best and most ingenious toys to hit the market in the 80’s/90’s. It was like a primitive pixel art creator. I’m truly sad that it’s never seen a modern-day revival, since it’s definitely due for one.
This is all leading up to a very important development in Peter’s youth, as it was definitely a turning point for mine. Over the next few pages Peter is going to discover something that will stay with him for the rest of his life. Hmmm, what could it be??
In other P&C-related news:
as of this post, the Peter & Company animated pilot Kickstarter campaign is EXTREMELY close to reaching its goal!! Out of the required $10,000, we currently have raised $9,460!! UPDATE!! It seems that in the time since I made this original post at midnight last night, several more generous donations have come in that have pushed the total amount over the edge. The current total stands at $10,120!
That’s right, everyone: the Peter & Company animated pilot episode is green-lit for production and will be coming later this year to an internet near you!
WE DID IT!!!
And the Kickstarter isn’t done yet! We still have two more weeks left until the deadline, which means that’s another two weeks that we can still bring in more donations! Meeting the goal just means that the project gets approved for production. The more funding we can bring in now past the goal amount, the better quality we can afford to make the pilot!! So to everyone who still was hoping to donate, PLEASE still do so! All of the rewards will remain available to anyone who wants them, so as long as you send your donation before 2:53 pm EST on May 21st, you will still be eligible to earn a spot in the cast of Peter & Company!
Please continue to share the link to the Kickstarter donation page on your Facebook, Twitter, and other social media tools. Once the final two weeks of the campaign are up, I will be creating a new blog specifically to share news and updates on the production of the pilot episode.
Thank you to EVERYONE who has donated to the project or shared the links with others over the past couple months! This has been a wild ride, and it’s still only just getting started. Peter & Company fans are without a doubt the most awesome people in the world.
