Short out your synapses and dry out your eyeballs playing The Legend of Korra video game from Platinum Games and Activision, featuring awesome cut scenes by our friends at Titmouse Animation, OUT TODAY!
Do you accept Kuvira as your lord and savior?
If not, YOU’LL BE CRUSHED.
Kuvira LOK still paint over. She looks a bit like Zelda Williams.
This. Is. AWESOME!
And yah, the producers and I had a laugh about how similar we looked when I came in and read in person for the first time. I hadn’t seen the character art until then! My mom even has a beauty mark on her cheek in a similar spot :)
These are the images I made for the end of our NYCC panel last week. I know these have already made the rounds on the internet, but I thought I should share them here for posterity and for the folks who might not have seen them. Much to my surprise, even my improvised farewell/thank you speech was transcribed and shared along with the images, which was really nice. Here are those words as well, edited by me to correct what my mumbling likely made unclear for the transcriber and/or to represent what I meant to say:
"This is a really big deal for us. It’s been twelve years since we came up with this whole Avatar universe together. Avatar means so many different things to so many different people. To me, when I think of the creation of it, I just think of me and Mike sitting at my computer in this little house I rented in Burbank. And we would just share the keyboard and take turns. And just over the span of two weeks we cracked open this universe together. And twelve and half years later it’s just blossomed into something so huge. And it’s such a big part of our lives and people’s all over the world. These characters are real to us. Not in a delusional way, but in an emotional way. They really mean a lot to me and I know to Mike as well. And we just want to say thanks."
The panel and the signing were an amazing experience and a fitting sendoff for the show, even though I agree with Janet, PJ, and Dave: this show will live on, beyond the release of its final episode, for a long time. And a huge thanks to you guys for all the awesome letters and gifts. The ATLA/LOK fandom is an amazing international community of thoughtful, warmhearted humans.
ATTENTION COSPLAYERS: I based Korra’s new Book 4 boots on existing ones. They’re vegan, which is cool. Maybe I’ll rock a pair too. Here’s a link where you can order them: http://www.amazon.com/Womens-Suede-Winter-Buckle-5-5-10/dp/B006CB2XXI

NYCC was BRILLIANT!! The Avatar Legacy Fan Panel witnessed it’s largest gathering to date! 700+ (shout out to all of those standing in the back!). We are sorry so many fans were turned away.
It was so wonderful to share the panel table with Monica McClain, Kevin Coppa, Alison Wilgus, and Jessie Flower.
I am not sure if there were fans recording the panel, but if there were, let us know :)
Here are a few photos from the panel. I will post more when I return to Chicago.
Thank you New York. We felt your big city’s BIG love.
I love that we all share our excitement for Avatar the Last Airbender and Legend of Korra.

Congratulations! So happy this went so well.
Things that are super cute and make me awwww:
- Korra’s parka
- The yellow leaf puppy-dog spirit thingy
(I know people have drawn stuff like this already but shhhhhh I wanted to draw Korra with the puppy spirit too)
Aang’s all grown up
I really enjoyed this.
Our portrayals of adult Aang up to this point had always been so serious. We though this was a perfect opportunity to show that deep down he was still the same fun-loving trickster. P.S. Ryu drew both of these, something like 9 years apart! P.P.S. I *JUST* noticed Sokka’s hair is colored incorrectly in that still. The top part is colored like his shaved sides. Is it too late to call a retake on footage we made in 2004?
