"Millennia War" on T.V.!!!
This has been in the works for a small time but I wanted to make sure everything had the green light before I go and tell the world about it, haha! Thanks to my mom promoting me to the right people, the T.V. show,"Chicago Tonight", learned about "Millennia War" and the rest of my art and conducted an interview with me today!!!
Our first stop was Graham Crackers Comics located on 77 E. Madison St. in downtown Chicago where the interviewer, Christian Farr, interviewed me about my work along with the Graham Crackers staff. After buying a few comics and hanging out a while there, Christian, his camera man, Tim, and I drove back to my house where we finished the interview in my room (a.k.a. the Command Center ^_^), played DDR, and ravaged the dinner my mom prepared for us, heheh. We ended our day together by taking a group shot in my living room.
I had a feeling today would go well, but I didn't anticipate it would be as fun as it was. I mean Christian and Tim managed to play some video games and stay for dinner (although it IS hard to say no to my mom's cooking!).
My thanks goes out to my mom and Jeanette for making this opportunity possible, Graham Crackers Comics for allowing us to use their store, Tim for being an awesome camera man and a cool person, and Christian for making the interview really comfortable and smooth. Let's do it again!!!! =^_^=
Okay the question I know you're waiting to be answered: the date of the airing for the episode hasn't been set yet (since it was just shot today, LOL) but as soon as I find out you guys will be the first to know!!!! Chicago Tonight airs on WTTW Channel 11 at 7 pm on weekdays, with rebroadcasts at 1 am & 4:30 am. I am assuming this is only for Chicago....
