Yesterday seven American astronauts died when the space shuttle Columbia exploded for reasons as yet unknown.
I believe in a future where the human race expands into space and builds a life there.
Most of us spend our lives simply enjoying the scenery or if we're lucky, contributing to it
in some way. These are the people build and protect the future for us with their lives.
To the pioneers and explorers
who venture out to build a place for us all among the stars, you will never be forgotten.

Take a moment to consider how fortunate we are to have such people among us all.
Finally, I manage to get an update in! Well 2002 was a busy year for us and at the same time
a year full of lessons hard learned. Scratch Trigger Era and
Sawtooth both carry on in pre-production
Scratch Trigger Era is in the 3d modelling stage. These are our first 3d models and some of them
are proving to be quite challenging to build/animate ^o^ Every day is a new lesson in humility.
Things proceed slowly, but surely.
Character art has been completed for Sawtooth. Now that the cast has been designed we're
researching/designing locations. There has been a mountain of material developed for Sawtooth. Expect
some sort of update to the website in the near future.
We are currently seeking a producer for both Scratch Trigger Era and Sawtooth.
Anyone with experience raising money for small film projects, we'd like to hear from you!
Beautiful Decay magazine is running a feature on artist/author Jon Chang in their next issue.
This article features unreleased art from both Sawtooth and Scratch Trigger Era.
In the April issue of Animerica magazine, Jon Chang's interview with Satoshi Kon should be getting
the cover story.
And last but not least, the Discordance Axis DVD is going into it's second pressing with Hydrahead Records. It is available at Amazon.com!
Our first Amazon
listing ^_^ I find this strangely satisfying. The Ikaruga promo video is available at
Hydrahead.com soon ^_^
Recently a few of the team have branched into FPS map making as well. Expect some downloads to
be available soon. The crew of artists here has grown by 2 in the past few months, if you'd like to work on
one of our projects don't hesitate to get in touch, but
remember we're all volunteer ^_^
2003 should be an interesting year, indeed.
Pressing one of the DA DVD is officially sold out from us, so please stop sending orders!
Discordance Axis site updated with news about the DVD and reissues of the first 2 DA CDs. Redesgin pending (we are still beta testing the new design)
The Last Enemy, a mod for SOF 2, goes live! Studio Grey folks are working on art and 3d models for this title.
We're also working on a redesign to make our content(since we now have quite a bit) a bit easier to access.
Scratch Trigger Era goes live! Up next info on Black Powder, Red Earth and new project
involving the Studio Grey team...a mod for SOF2 called The Last Enemy!
Studio Grey designs now available through Progressive. Whoohoo!
324 LPS are now avail via Lumberjack Distro. It only took us 1 year...^o^
Available on April 20, the Studio Grey series from Progressive. We'll be getting several of each design
in Lg or XL. Pricing remains to be determined. Keep your eyes
here. Updates and new content is just around the corner.
Honestly, we're all working really hard!!! ^_-
