About damn time. =/ Summer is almost over now.

This is exactly what I was thinking...

Meet the Staff: Tashabatata

    The Gaia art department recently brought in Tashabatata, the younger sister of legendary Gaia bro-team Brunosmad and Fleep. Along with all of the wit, moxy and talent of her brothers-- and far less of their grumbling, troll-smell and back sweat-- Tashabatata also brings the perspective of a long-time Gaia fan.

    Tashabatata in full shameless nerd mode


    Since joining the art team, Tashabatata has been a constant source of youthful enlightenment for the old-timers wandering Gaia's hallways, searching for artificial sweeteners and someone to explain what "furries" are. Since she has so many answers, Gaia Action 9 sat down with her to get a few answers of our own.

      Some people say you're an art intern, so let's set the record straight. What do you do at Gaia?

      I'm an art intern! I get to play with a bunch of different creative projects, including drawing, pixeling, and organization. It's like a eating a delicious art salad, without the mouth full of toxic paint!

      Reputable sources, like your older brothers, tell me you were a Gaian before coming to work here. How long have you been a Gaian, and what drew you to become one?

      Well, I became a Gaian back in 2004, when I was really dorking out about this particular animated series. Like, horrendously so. If I recall correctly, I was awkward, 13, and regularly attempting to sew scary, decrepit fan plushies. Those were great times! However, and I think many Gaians can back me on this, being simultaneously a teenager and a dork is not without its hardships. Those are the years when kids feel a ton of pressure to fit in-- and if you were a huge nerdlinger like me, you'd know that it's hard to crawl into a comfortable niche.

      Gaia, to my great joy, gave me that niche for a few years. While punks at school were giving me guff, I managed to connect with my kind of people in the forums. I found Gaia to be a place where I could really be myself without being judged -- it was essentially my geek sanctuary. Oh, and for the record, I frequently use geek as a term of endearment!

      Beside that oh-so-wonderful part of my Gaia experience, I also just admired the art and creativity that the site fostered. It was a breath of fresh air to inhabit an artistically-inclined community.

      Why did you want to be an art intern at Gaia?

      First of all, I have always loved drawing. I'm pretty sure I was doodling on the walls of my mother's uterus when I was but a shrimp of a fetus, I love it so much. All disturbing imagery aside, the prospect of actually doing what I love for a website that I love was an exciting one. I knew it would involve a ton of work, and because of that, I was certain it would be a very challenging experience-- which would inevitably help me grow as an artist tremendously.

      If you could have anyone in the world draw you, who would it be, and why?

      Bruce Timm! I've always loved his adorable, ovary-explodingly cute character designs. Do I want to be drawn by the guy who created Harley Quinn? Hell yeah!

      What is a normal day at Gaia like for you? What are you working on now?

      A normal day at Gaia for me involves nomming on cereal, listening to music, and many attempts at cranking out art with my tablet. Of course, since I wouldn't consider myself a particularly seasoned artist, I often ask others to look over my work and make sure that the arms I draw look like arms, as opposed to, I dunno, shapeless sausages.

      Right now, I'm working on drawing general chunks of clip art that can be used by other artists when needed. I really enjoy this project in particular, because it gives me a lot of freedom in terms of what I get to draw. It forces me to tap into my creative juices (that always sounded gross to me) and push myself to draw stuff outside of my comfort zone. It's neat!

      Do I have something stuck in my teeth?

      Yes, it's disgusting. Get out of my sight.

im kinda confused this is my first year, so ive never experienced a summer event what is it like?

Next to Halloween, Summer events are the largest and longest and usually require Gaians to team up. They can also be frustrating and fun at the same time.

2004 - the first Gaia Olympics, the NPCs were in a marathon, no real Gaian participation, all you did was root for who to win.

2007 - Huge water fight, Town Teams. The NPCs were the Leaders.

2008 - the second Gaia Olympics, this one involved Gaians and Town Teams. There were a bunch of silly Flash games to play.

2009 - Camp themed event, Gaians played pranks on one another, the NPCs were Councilors.

*is confused*
So what is the deal with these 'daily stickers", the way it's stated in the post it seems like it should've started already.

But at least we'll get an event. they have 2 weeks til our area schools start up.
