And now a quick 2D break from the Battlefront

Hello hello to all you TSTO warriors.  All this battling has got the resident fuzzball’s brain going a bunch of different ways.  My town has certainly become a war zone and I’m finding myself in a heightened state of creative readiness.  That being said, my town is every day being tinkered with.  I even resurrected an old 2D lettering job of mine.  I think it both sums up this event nicely AND shows my love for one of my favorite things.  Nothing super fancy but click more if you’re interested.

I made this once upon a time during a chaotic episode in the TSTO blogging world for my bud Mike Shuman over at TSTOTopix.  Whenever things are crazy, my fail safe has always been humor plus I really enjoyed tweaking the iconic lettering of my favorite film franchise.

Of course, TSTO is at war now but in a much better way and I felt it was time to bring back the logo.  Because I’m always looking to tweak my designs, I also added some color.  I initially wanted to color this yellow but the burning bushes required was outside my price range.  I guess orange will have to suffice.

I don’t know about you, but this really makes me jones for some Star Wars stuff in TSTO.  How could May 4th have come and gone with nothing?  Probably doesn’t help that I watched the Mark Hamill episode during the FXX Marathon.

And that’s all I really have to say about that.  What do ya think?  Got any unique lettering you’ve done you’d like to share?  Do you love “the Wars” as much as this walking carpet?  I have a few 2Ds percolating in my brainpan for the future so my next 2D post should be much better.  I also heard rumor that bunny foo foo has plans too.

Well hopefully you liked this quick break from your nerd onslaughts and shield tapping.  If not, blame reader and friend alunited1961. He convinced me to share.  (Thanks for the prod bud!)  Also, please feel free to copy this and/or improve on it if you like.  I’ll sign off for now and leave you with three quotes I really like about war.

“War does not determine who is right – only who is left.” ~ Bertrand Russell

“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.” ~ Albert Einstein

“I will not play tug o’ war. I’d rather play hug o’ war. Where everyone hugs instead of tugs, Where everyone giggles and rolls on the rug, Where everyone kisses, and everyone grins, and everyone cuddles, and everyone wins.” ~ Shel Silverstein

Stay classy you barbarian hordes and TTFN… Wookiee out!

  1. While not as nice as the image above, I have spelled out in my KL. (Bunny can screenshot it if you want to see it — I have difficulty with screenshots on that device.) A few of my in-game friends were not found on this site so perhaps it will help you find a few more fans.

  2. The Glitches for this event are mind numbing and maddening. In last 48 hours, I have lost more than 60 shields. They just disappear. *Poof* gone along with elixir and gold. How does EA expect me to purchase Premium Product when they can’t fix a 9 day problem.

  3. It is such a good design mate well worth a blog……..anda star wars crossover would be great but too many commercial interests let’s look at a Monty python theme those guys need the dosh

  4. I love your design. I look at it everyday. I myself live the war of the stars and even have Jedi tattooed on my right hand with a green lightsaber in mid attack above it. Not to mention the huge rebel alliance symbol on my left arm encasing anakin Skywalker’s Darth Vader helmet. Lets be honest…. we all know Anakin was the chosen one.

  5. I like how you put in Star Wars in to tsto. I don’t think there will be an event for Star Wars in tsto but there might be in fgtqfs.

  6. As much as I would love to see Star Wars related material in TSTO, I’m not sure if we will. Although they may be able to do it under ‘fair use’ as a parody, EA may choose to have it officially licensed through… ehem… Disney. I don’t know if Disney may feel it would benefiting Fox and see it as a conflict of interest. I believe they are pretty diligent in protecting their own creations via copyrights. I can only assume they may do the same with Star Wars now that they own it. Again, I don’t know. I am just speculating. I’ve been a huge Star Wars fan since May 25, 1977, so yeah, I would love to see some representation or a nod to it in TSTO, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.

  7. Nice one. With you on the may 4th thing 😉

  8. Yey! More 2D art!

  9. Is this the Add Friends note that was teased in slug? I need a half dozen new friends. Can’t find a new or active page. “help me Jeebus”

  10. Love the lettering! Also, Shel Silverstein’s, “Where the Sidewalk Ends” is my favorite book from childhood. I still have the one I took out in 1987 but never returned to my middle school library.
