I think July 3rd is always a hard day for Giant Bomb fans. It's a remembrance of so many good times, and one bad.

Some have asked when my next cartoon would come out. The reason for the delay was:

1: I tend to work on several at a time so sometimes there's they're all closer to the start of creation rather than the finish.

2: I wanted to make one featuring Ryan Davis, and I didn't expect how much I would obsess on getting the Ryan model correct. I must have restarted 3 or 4 times on his character model because it just wasn't good enough.

3: As I realized this day was coming closer, I realized I wanted to save this one a little longer in hopes that this could be my small way of honoring a beloved man and personality.

I won't lie, I shake a little as I post this, because this is a very personal short for me. It's one of my favorite moments in all of Giant Bomb history, and I hope I did right by the incomparable Mr. Davis.

As a side note, you'll notice I picked an odd design for Brad. This is mostly due to lack of time to make a proper Brad model (on top of the redesigned Jeff and Ryan). I thought this would make a funny surprise, but I will have a real Brad character model in the future!

I don't remember this bit, but that just made it even funnier. Fantastic job!

Ryan and Vinny were the best parents.

Oh man, that's really something great! Also the last few seconds where it was just back, and it left me lingering on Ryan's greatness... damn. Gods work, son, Gods work.

Damn it's really been four years. Time to dive into some classic Ryan content and cry myself to sleep. Great work duder.

This is great, thank you. Really reminds me how great the chemistry used to be between those 4 dudes, and how silly and funny they were.

Brad should just remain a photographic head for no reason whatsoever.

Somehow seeing Jeff in a child harness is the funniest thing I have seen all week.
