Roo Says: Hey Everybody. Tix Says: How You Doin?

Alright so

we have been

very gone.

January, we were



Busy. It was the beginning of the year (which is bad enough just on its own,) but Roo took over part- ownership of the Family business at the beginning of the year, AND that was also the month of Further Confusion (which is fairly stressful, when you’re a couple of introverts,) AND this year we went to a Welcome to Night Vale live show which was.. REALLY awesome, but surrounded by a whole big travel adventure/nightmare.

February. . .


Was mostly spent recovering from January.



Roo had a class that ate up a week and then Tix had one of their friends over from Australia for a couple weeks,

and April, we’ve just been trying to pull ourselves back together!


So We have more or less gotten our booties together so now it’s time to start updating again! The plan is more or less as follows:


Will be posted once a month. Originally our goal was every week, but that is clearly not happening, and we think that this will be a little more do-able for us. The goal is to do it the second or third week of the month, depending on how many weeks the month has.
We would also like to put out a call for ABE ideas! We had a book of them but we can’t find them. We have a couple right now, so we’re alright for a few months, but if you have any warm-ups that you always do, or any things that you use to help pull yourself out of an art slump, please email it to us at abe@tix-n-roo.com, with the subject line “ABE Submission,” and one of us will get back to you with how to continue from there!


Will continue to be theoretically monthly, on the last Friday of the month- except now we should have Both of us hosting, instead of just Roo!

Mental Health No Jutsu:

Is a new category that we just introduced… actually in January. Roo went back and turned some old ABEs into MHNJ posts and anything in the ABE and P+M tags that also fits in there has been added to that tag. We will post little mental health or self-care ideas and snippets also once a month- theoretically the first week of the month, but we’ll see.

If nothing else, we would like to try to update at least ONE of these things ONCE a month. That is definitely the minimum that you can expect from us!

Resources page

WE MADE A RESOURCES PAGE! It’s pretty small right now but we’re trying to make it better! If you could do us a favor and go on over there and help us fill in the gaps, we’d much appreciate it! There are instructions on what we’re trying to accomplish and how you can help on that page.

Thank you very much for bearing with us and we hope that you will continue to Create Without Fear!

Someone put googly eyes on our ABE binder.

We are 100% okay with that.

Further Confusion 2014!

January 16, 2014 in News

Hey Fluffbuckets!

If you’re here right now it’s PROBABLY because you ran into us, or our flyers, or our ABE Binder at Further Confusion!

And that’s pretty rad, we’re glad to see you!

If you’re new here, you might want to check out our primary tags-

Art Block Execution, Procrastination and Motivation, and Mental Health no Jutsu.

We have a lot of things planned and in the works- the next episode of P+M is currently being edited and should hopefully be up by February. ABEs post roughly every Wednesday, and should be resuming soon.

Our primary goal is to help artists get out of their funks and back on the ball, but we don’t pretend to know or think of everything, so if you have any techniques or distractions you use to help get your mojo back, send us an email to abe@tix-n-roo.com, and we’ll get it set up to be ab Art Block Execution Challenge/Technique.

We’re also looking for input about both depression and chronic illness and how they interact with Motivation- you can get a little bit more info on what we’re looking for here.

We hope you have/had a fun and safe convention!

Hey fellow Creators!

So, Roo and I have been kinda running around playing a funny little game called LIFE. we wont get into details , but it has left us short when it comes to posting ABES. we have a few ready for everyone [ As well as an upcoming Podcast ] but we haven’t taken the time to actually post anything.

And for that, we’re sorry.

But A new ABE is scheduled to be posted tonight. We hope you’ll enjoy it!

Be mighty out there!
