Check out this slick piece of artwork I got for the :icontmnt-secret-santa: art trade!  I requested a scene from this huge, crazy massive fic I've been writing on and off for about three years now... it's going a little off the rails, but in a good way. :D Technically it's not set in SAINW, but there are certain elements of that episode that show up throughout the story.  This scene looks great, and I love the 2k12 spin on it!  The fic doesn't specify what universe, and it's going to be a little too grimdark to be set in the Nick 'toon, but that's the beauty of artist interpretation and what makes trades like this so fun!  

Leo SAINW by ZarrannaMorza

The scene is Leo, looking out over the training grounds in quiet contemplation, thinking about happier times just before he goes off to meet with a certain enemy of theirs.  Here's a short excerpt if you want to read it yourself.  There's a few more bits and pieces in my scraps, just scenes I pulled for the trade, but they're all from that same story (no spoilers).  I'll start putting it up sometime after the holidays.  

Hope you guys have a good holiday.  Eat, drink, be merry... but watch out for rival clans.  :ninja:

Happy Secret Santa! (I hope i'm not accidentally early. That would be embarrassing.)

Not at all!  Wow, I'm blown away!  Once my fic is up I'll promote the hell out of this.  Thanks again!!!  You do really great work.  :love:

Why thank you, my dear! I quite enjoyed drawing it. :)

No problem!  I like what you're doing here with this group.  I might enter a contest or two myself, after the holidays.  :D

"Currently spinning hiphop (oldskool and UG) and electronic stuff (ambient, IDM) these days."

So you're me?

Hahaha!  I have a confession to make... I found you on bandcamp a few weeks ago and checked out some of tracks - you got some serious skillz man!  I love chiptune and game soundtracks too so that and TMNT references were right up my alley.  It's funny, because I just know you from the 'drome and from your fanart here, so I admit when I saw you were a hip-hop artist, I was like, "yeah right" but holy shit, you're actually really good!  I think "Letter to God" is my favorite so far (probably biased a little because I still have a soft spot for Edward Scissorhands, ha) but I'm still picking through.  "Shell" is great too, love that for the obvious reasons.  :D  I'm planning on buying your catalog, probably this week once I get my xmas budget settled.

But yeah, I'm a music junkie.  I just saw Deltron a couple weeks ago here in LA, they were amaaaaazing.  I think they're still on tour, if you get a chance - highly recommended.  I try to go to a lot of shows.  I saw El-P and Killer Mike a few months ago, they fuckin' killed it.  I dunno if you listen to them, but Run the Jewels is one the best new albums I've heard in a while.  I already got early bird tickets to Coachella this year... I'm banking on Daft Punk returning and crossing my fingers for Boards of Canada, but BoC is a stretch.   As far as electro goes, my favorite new thing is Carpenter Brut - really heavy, retro electro, and totally inspired by Goblin (Italian horror disco, in case you're not familiar... they did all the soundtracks to the Fulci/Argento films).

Hey you're originally from NYC, right?  What did you think about 5Pointz going down?  Wish I gotten to see it in person...

Oh man, I'm both surprised and flattered! I really appreciated the kind words & support! Most people have that same reaction, so I'm especially glad when people give it a chance regardless of my being a geeked out white guy. :p But yeah, that's really kind of you to say. & while the thought means a lot, don't sweat any purchases, everything I've got up there for now is a free download. I'm definitely a music junkie too, into a little bit of everything, short of country, cliche as it is to say. I definitely favor good hip-hop, electronica, & video game music above all, though! I try to get to as many shows as I can in the area, but there's not much of a scene (I'm just outside the capital of SC) so I usually have to go out of state to NC or GA for something good. I definitely fuck with El-P & Killer Mike, me & my group Grindhouse Gang were the opening act at the release party for their album in Georgia last year, actually! Was a hell of a good night, & KM was a mad nice dude. Lately though I'm spinning a lot of 80's new wave, j-pop, chillwave & breakbeat stuff. I'm familiar with Goblin, sure! They've been sampled in hip-hop quite extensively, most notably by Necro & his affiliates. Their shit is rad on its own, though. I'm originally from NY, yeah, I think the whole 5 pointz thing is a damn tragedy. That spot was a historical landmark as far as I'm concerned, for NY, for hip-hop, for art, it just represented NY culture/youth on a whole. Not to mention it was largely portraits of lost ones, so on that factor alone it was mad disrespectful for them to paint it over. I'm just glad I was able to take some footage & photos there before it was too late. It was really a sight to see, man, & ever changing, too.
