Happy (almost) New Year! This is Michelle, the behind-the-scenes invoicing and processing part of the Onell team. On behalf of myself and the rest of the crew, I would like to extend warm holiday greetings and a hearty thank you to everyone who places orders and takes an interest in what we do. Since I do all of the invoicing, I know many of you by name even if I have never met or spoken with you in person. Your consistent orders and patience with our mistakes are never taken for granted, I can assure you!
As 2012 draws to a close, I find myself contemplating my role in the future of Glyos more and more. When Matt and I started working together over 15 years ago, our dream was to be a husband and wife creative team. Rechlen and Aves was his baby, and Sidrick was mine. As the years passed, our creativity took us in different directions; Pheyden was born, and not long after were the (actual) births of our kids Cady and Cirie. Needless to say, my quiet evenings spent drawing with Matt were replaced with sleepless nights and wiping butts! (Wow, that sounds like a bad country song.) Anyway, with our little one entering kindergarten in the fall, I see those dreams beginning to reemerge for me personally. It will be a slow reentry, but I will try and have more of a presence on here in 2013 and beyond.
So with that being said, the next couple of blog posts will focus on a character that is near and dear to my heart: Gobon. This outer space relic has appeared in many of the Glyos Passcodes as well as in Sidrick's favorite comic Monsters vs Robots. Matt and I co-created this guy while we were sitting in the lobby of a Saturn dealership buying our first car together - not sure what that says about our taste in cars, but hopefully our collaborative efforts make up for it!
