Our mission is to produce quality television and live online broadcasts featuring established and upcoming comic book artists, cartoonists, graffiti artists, pop artists, illustrators, entertainment/gaming artists, animators and musicians that create music for those industries. We will provide a platform for those that create the art and music that provide a means of escape from daily grime. We will provide a social network supported by sponsors and partners for those that wish to immerse themselves in the culture. Our audience will have the opportunity to learn from artists and musicians of the industry and watch them demonstrate their techniques. It is our goal that they will gain knowledge and appreciation of how things work, the history of escapism and its importance in current times. Commercial art and music for industry educators will also be encouraged to participate.

ArcadeBy Michele McMillan

I frequently begin small electronics projects, but lately I have wanted to do an arcade machine. When I started thinking it over I realized how lonely other arcade machines in my neighborhood had become. Was it because of the graphics? Was it because of the controllers? Was it because kids today have mobile devices? Maybe people don’t carry change like they used to? I know I am a swipe and griper. I know plenty of arcade machines that get a lot of love. There are many retro-arcade machine spots popping up around Chicago, Los Angeles, and other cities, but they aren’t really targeted to youth. It seems it is more to target those with a sense of nostalgia for it. So I puzzle the question again… Is there a life for the modern arcade machine? Or is it best to leave well enough alone? Are home consoles supreme? Are there opportunities for arcade machines the console does not provide left to be explored?
