The BigAppleCon Postcards have arrived.

2008-05-29 12:53:58 by MindChamber

We'll be giving these out at the BigAppleCon next week

I think they came out pretty sweet. At first I was a bit put off that they are a tiny bit dark, but I love how rich the colors Look. Its pretty cool to see my art in solid form and on something you can actually hold.

I did get a few gripes about the statement on the card as being a bit pretentious.
"The Most creative Group of Artist, animators, game designers, and musicians on the Web"

I dunno, I think its true, and isn't pretentious at all. maybe if I said "The ONLY Group of..." or " The Most Talented group" or " The most respected" <---LoL

In terms of the sheer amount of creative talent, we are certainly the biggest. And being creative doesn't mean we don't still have room to grow... Y'know?
I think its safe to say we ARE the most creative group on the web, and it really makes me proud.

The BigAppleCon Postcards have arrived.

Can I have one plz?


2008-05-29 13:00:21

I liked your old banner better.

MindChamber responds:



2008-05-29 13:02:23

lol, i think newgrounds has earned the right to be as pretentious as they damn well please. :D


2008-05-29 13:24:13

Awesome, it's a huge shame (for me) that I can't make it anymore.

MindChamber responds:

the gods will be displeased


2008-05-29 13:41:53

Don't forget YouTube and their array of talented vloggers! They just ooze with creative juices and sheer talent.

Also, on a more serious note.. Could we see a higher rez version of that image and will these be handed out at San Diego Comic-Con?

MindChamber responds:

I linked to a bigger image from that link under "cards" also check the art forum under my name for a better image with typos tho :(

as for seeing these at comic con, probably not.


2008-05-29 14:04:01

thats awesome, yo is it ok if i can print out one of those cards so i dont have to travel all the way to NY to the big apple to just get one?


2008-05-29 14:12:06

Nice, I really like this.

Aw, darn shame. Guess I won't have a chance to get one then :(


2008-05-29 14:12:49

So, your MindChamber model is actually done, right? It would look awesome enough without the cards in it's hands. Great work on both projects!


2008-05-29 14:14:17

The first few people at the convention to accuse the postcard of being pretentious will get punched in the face by myself. After a few rounds of that, we should stop hearing people say it...though I worry it might give the people the wrong impression about us.

MindChamber responds:

hahah actually that sounds like the right impression


2008-05-29 14:21:38

I've been to a lot of flash web sites, and this is without a doubt the most creative and best place to go. I really can't speak too much for the music, but I know the Newgrounds Audio Portal has some crazy stuff. But too bad I can't go, I would love to meet all you guys and get one of those postcards. If I was going, I would so go up to The Swain and call the cards pretentious just to see if he would live up to his word.

MindChamber responds:

Swains like 7 foot 5, I dont see why not, lols


2008-05-29 14:40:31

Looks like I picked the wrong Con to go to. I'm headin' to Comic-Con San Diego. Oh well... I'm sure I'll meet the NG Crew in person some day.


2008-05-29 14:54:04

Is it wrong that I've been on this site for years and I don't recognize the baby-looking character next to Foamy?

Very vibrant and cool-looking.


2008-05-29 14:54:47

Ohh, I see a green little star on there. Star Syndicate I guess??
Nice work.


2008-05-29 14:59:09

Cool, Lol I'm a collector of postcards now. Ever since I started designing them for people and collected a whole bunch from the ComicCon they're just cool to have stacked up in my room.
Now I'm going to have an NG card. Nice.


2008-05-29 15:00:33

Holy fuck, the tank one is sexy. Can you save one for my next order?


2008-05-29 15:12:23

Y'know the massive tank taking up all the writing space on the back does kinda defeat the object of being a postcard ,'=.

MindChamber responds:

theres enough space to add a stamp and say HEY I SAWED TOM FLUP!!!

its a novelty


2008-05-29 15:12:33

I made the top one my desktop

I wish i could go to the con............. T_T


2008-05-29 15:51:11

Even though I'm not a fan of them, I'm missing the LL there.


2008-05-29 15:54:55

is the baby Marcus Peblo?

MindChamber responds:

yup! good idea


2008-05-29 16:07:50


also like how you have your little model MC holding the card, you whoer ;)


2008-05-29 16:10:23

Of course we are the most crative. We really are.


2008-05-29 16:11:21

And that postcard shows it.


2008-05-29 16:11:46

i dont like the back of the card much, but the front is sexy including the statement :D


2008-05-29 16:58:54

pretty snazzy! i find it ironic that under that statement are the werid array of NG Mascots. The average person could think that they were made by someone high in the basement. We dont think that of course :D


2008-05-29 18:12:58

You guys had to do it on the same day as my sister's B-Day :(.

Never mind, but how will I get the patches now?


2008-05-29 18:18:22

i like your new banner and stuff.


2008-05-29 18:37:24

Do I see Charlie the Unicorn?


2008-05-29 18:38:06

The Tank one is very mysterious, make sure to bring some to san diego :)


2008-05-29 18:43:57

To LazyMuffin: The baby is Marcus Peblo, youd have to be either a hardcore newgrounds follower to go that far back or have existed back then.

You probably have never heard of eric black, slitfinger, or tommunism either right?


2008-05-29 19:10:38

Looks great. :)


2008-05-29 20:20:41

Goddamn, why do plane tickets cost so much?Is there any other way to get theses cool little goodies?


2008-05-29 20:54:00

"...and musicians"


2008-05-29 21:11:31

One of these days one of my weird pointy nosed Duders will be worthy enouph to be on a NG postcard.
That's one of my new goals. :3
...dang that card is sexy!

MindChamber responds:

it would be cool to do like a full poster with everybody!


2008-05-29 22:03:56

Nice, I'm not so sure I'm coming, my friend is saying he needs to "keep his rep" so he's not coming, even though he won't see anyone he knows there >.> and I need an adult to come with (My parents are being gay about it >:\) Maybe I'll be able to pursuade them anyways.

MindChamber responds:

Lol Wtf

ya'll live in Holmes, NY.. what kinda rep can ya have, havin the fastest wheel barrel on the farm?


2008-05-29 22:19:11

those are pretty sexy, i wish i could go


2008-05-29 22:19:18

I'd love to make it out to the BigAppleCON... actually, i'd love to go to any CON.

Alas, mortgage payments suck ass.


2008-05-29 22:49:43

haha ur whistle is garbage

MindChamber responds:

lol your a normal whistle , go outside moar.


2008-05-29 23:50:28

A full poster I'd not only gladly pay for, but I'd totally cum.
Also, TCD + MC = Garbage Whistle Brothers. :P


2008-05-30 00:36:23

me wanty, me wanty!

me also wanty my shirt. ;-;


2008-05-30 01:40:45

Is that midchamber bot holding the postcard? It's cool BTW who made it?

MindChamber responds:

yes, and I did.


2008-05-30 05:01:30

good work!!!


2008-05-30 07:40:36

Great! and is tht gta in the background?

MindChamber responds:

damn you must really be squinting hard to catch that


2008-05-30 17:35:49

Fucking sweet, I love how you've got your robot holding the top one, lol.

Also, I believe that between you, Swain and I handing out knuckle sammiches. The pretentious comments shouldcome to a halt fairly rapidly as word spread about our intolerance of dissent.

I'm starting to believe that I should have ignored Luis and flown into Philly instead of NY being that I'm probably going to rent a vehicle in NY I could have helped cart some stuff to the con. From what he's told me so far you guys are having space issues as far as what to bring and what not to.


It would be a terrible shame for him not to make an appearance.

MindChamber responds:

haha , we'll see about P-Boddy, but its all good


2008-05-30 20:53:20

I saw Tom mention working on Pixel Puncher again.
That games got the Alloy Platformer Engine right? I really want to see another or THE Alloy game soon. I'm hoping the completion of PP brings it a step closer.

MindChamber responds:

well its kinda has alloy's engine in the sense both were being worked on around the same time and both have the same elements. more or less.

PsychoGoldfish is in charge of the Alloy game tho. so once he finds the time then I can help out


2008-05-31 00:03:43

NG is globally growing bigger, day by day. It's a worldwide phenomenon. By far the best flash and games site, easily. I mean with people like: you, Luis, Egoraptor and Tom Fulp, this site can't fail. Because it gets better every time. And with events like these, you're only becoming more popular.



2008-05-31 01:22:46

HEY, if I make it to apple con will you guy help me get in, lol, I don't live to far from there I can make before 10 am. i'd hate to wait on a line for a jillion years lol!

MindChamber responds:

its a really small con, shouldnt be a long line


2008-05-31 03:15:36

Cool post card...all of Newgrounds most influential characters that were submitted by the coolest artist from around the world.

BTW...congratulations on winning the 2008 game tank awards! NG rumble is such an awesome Flash game. I'm sure you, Luis, and Aaron must have worked very hard on it.

Have fun at the Apple Con! Don't get too overwhelmed by all the over eccentric fans.


MindChamber responds:

thanks man!


2008-05-31 03:19:35

Is the MC bot done as in complete? make more then sell at NG store weeeee


2008-05-31 05:45:24
