Put us on a Mt Dew can!

My contest entry was accepted to the DEWmocracy competition. Please vote for me! http://apps.facebook.com/dewdesigngallery/?ref=nf

Look for this image on the cans when voting! I used a screenshot from Visions as the backdrop for my design. A vote for me is a vote for Visions!

I made the design by myself, this was not a team effort. But it was my hope that if I won the $10,000 grand prize, I could use some of the funds to buy some development software, specifically Ecstasy Motion for 3D art and animation, (as well as pay for braces for my son, and get Dentist and Eye Dr. appointments for the whole family). I am thrilled about the recognition we’re getting and hope you all will vote for me!

Thank you!

HBTZ converts company to LLC

On September 11, 2009 Heaven’s Blessings Tiny Zoo converted the business structure from sole proprietor to LLC. This is yet another step in taking action to build a larger stronger team, and preparing for bigger things to come in the near future. This conversion to LLC was made for legal purposes, and has no effect on the actual work that we are doing at Heaven’s Blessings Tiny Zoo, which is making great family friendly games for Christ! Thank you for your support.
