Sorry to interrupt your gleeous gallivanting, but it is with great sadness that I report a critical breach of security at The TipArt Deep-sea Fortress and Studio. Yesterday afternoon, our longtime and recently slain nemesis, the dolphin king, teamed up with a hitherto unknown enemy and stormed the keep. Details are still emerging, but it’s currently thought that the new threat is a sea otter that sustains itself on a diet of clams and human optimism. The otter is thought to have gained access to the Fortress by banging on the locks with a rock. Current whereabouts are unknown.
Luckily, the ignoble raid took place during an off-site feast and so only TipArt Contributor-In-Residence Balpreet was brutally slain by the cold blooded duo. While we mourn her loss at this difficult time, I have some good news to tell as well: there’s a new Contributor-In-Residence! Hot off her recent work on a Flower and the Korean Flag, please join me in welcoming Kara to the Deep-sea Fortress and Studio! We replaced the locks and are very excited to see what she comes up with, given the freedom to focus entirely on her work.
