Welcome To The Site!

Welcome To The Site

Hey everyone! It’s taken some time to get everything up and running, but it was worth the wait and it’s finally here.

Welcome to BrandonCanDraw.com!

If this is your first time checking out my work, thanks for taking the time to do so! For those of you who don’t know, I used to run a site called RidTheWorld.org. That was essentially the first version of this site, where I would post my art and animations. The name came from an old alias that I used for animation forums and was the first three letters of my last name (Rid). It didn’t make much sense at the time, but I could only think of one phrase with that word in it. That’s how RidTheWorld.org was born. Even though it was a silly name and it didn’t really go with what I was doing, I still had a good run with the site.

Over time, the name started to get to me and I finally decided to think of something new. I needed something that better suited me and what I do. Something that didn’t need an explanation after telling someone. Something simple and easy to remember. The hardest part was trying to find a decent name that wasn’t already taken on any social network. If possible, I like all of my accounts to match up. After going through many different variations of names, my girlfriend Abby helped me come up with the perfect one. Thus, BrandonCanDraw.com was born.

Now that that’s done, I hope you all like the changes! The site has been completely redesigned with a new WordPress theme and custom modifications. Big thanks to Ralph Damiano over at ForTheLoss for helping me put the site together. He’s the mastermind behind getting everything just right for me. I designed a new logo for the site, which can be seen above. With a new name, you obviously need a new logo to go with it. I hope you guys like it. As I mentioned before, I like all my accounts to match up, so I created new pages and renamed the ones that I could for all of my accounts. The links for those are now located at the top of the site, so please check those out and make sure you like, follow, and subscribe! You can also follow me on this site by using the new section to your right. There, you can enter your email address to receive notifications of new posts I write by email. If you want to stay updated with all of the new content that I release, be sure to follow me!

I think that’s everything that needs to be mentioned. If you’re new to the site, please feel free to check everything out and stay tuned for more cartoons from me. I’m currently working on my new animation Space Chase, so you can expect more updates on that coming soon. If you would like to learn more about it, be sure to check out the upcoming page of the site. I’ve even kept all of the previous update posts from RidTheWorld.org, as well as the release post for Alan Wake: The Tribute. If you would like to learn more about those animations, you can go back and read those. That’s all I’ve got for now. Until next time, I’ll catch you guys later!

    You ain’t wanna play me, Sean.

    Edit: Oh and good luck to Brandon with the new site and all that nonsense I guess, whatever.

  2. Sean says:

    First! (suck it Ralph :D)

    Nice, looks good man, can’t wait to see your future projects

  3. Do you seriously have “change” as a tag, do you even understand tags?

    Say I’m a visitor and I’m looking through the tags. Why the hell would “change” intrigue me to click on it?

    Plz.

  4. Thanks a lot, Sean. It’s good to hear from you again. It’s been a while.

    Shut up, Ralph. I don’t know everything about WordPress, but I don’t go around your site and look for everything wrong with it. Oh, and you forgot to add #gamedev at the end of your comment. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to research tags.

  5. Yo when the new animation gonna drop?

  6. When it’s done. I haven’t been working on it lately because I’ve been busy finishing the site, but I plan to go back to it soon.

    Expect a new update sometime soon. I know it’s been long overdue.

    • I had to fix the one on the right sidebar. It was too small. I’m just not sure why the colors for the text ads don’t match since they’re the same color codes.

      Other than that, everything works. Thanks for the help!

  9. Sean says:

    Wow, this is a great place, you’ve got your own wildlife and there’s obviously some type of vegetation somewhere as you’ve got all these balls of dead plants rolling around

  10. If only I could do something about these hecklers. I’ll have to call an exterminator.

  11. Sean says:

    Dial 1800 HECKLERS (432-553-77), we’ll take care of them bastards for ya!

  12. My reaction when I keep visiting this site looking for new content…

  13. Iā€™m currently working on my new animation Space Chase, so you can expect more updates on that coming soon.

  14. He was struggling with posting that too. I saw a blank comment at one point. Nice try, Sean.

    In all seriousness though, I’ll be writing a new post soon. Sometime before or after Christmas. I’ve just been distracted with Christmas gifts, school stuff, getting parts for a new computer, and trying to find a new composer for Space Chase. The search is still ongoing.

    But thank you for the amazing pictures. Your support truly shows.

    • Sean says:

      You don’t know how right you are, immense trouble trying to post any semblance of information here, you truly made it an Everest of a job to give you wonderful images.

      Nice, I understand, my zeroatoms site has been dead for years.. I want to post stuff but just too.. I want to say busy, but it’s probably lazy..

      The temptation to harass and tease is just too great to pass up, that’s why Ralph does it more often, he’s weaker than I ;D

  15. Being lazy is another reason why I haven’t posted in a while.

    I’m patiently waiting for Ralph’s downfall where he doesn’t post for months too. I’ll be there.

  16. I doubt it. He eats dinner when most people would be eating lunch.

  17. Brandon will surely have to make a post soon if he wants this chaos to end.

  18. Sean says:

    You would think so, but perhaps he’s enjoying it too much

  19. Could be, I could see him sitting back and just scrolling through. At this point we’re going to post the entire movie(s).

  20. Sean says:

    CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!

  21. Sean says:

    God I love that part you just posted, couldn’t help but crack up

  22. Lol.

    Also, 42 comments. Wow. Just wow. He has to crack soon!

  23. Sean says:

    Agree’d, lets continue!

  24. It’s gotten to the point I have to scroll up and check if one hasn’t been posted yet.

  25. I love these images but you guys need to stop. This page is getting way too full.

  26. Sorry, we can’t stop now, because at this point:

  27. Sean says:

    I kinda have to agree with Brandon.. but:

  28. Can’t stop, won’t stop until you make a new post.

  29. Sean says:

    Looks like we’re going to keep going with this.. so:

  30. Either deal with it or we’re gonna have to throw down:

  31. Sean says:

    Looks like he doesn’t mind.

    Yes! Can you feel that!?

  32. These comments are amazing.

    (On the up-side, you may start getting more hits for people searching for Ace Ventura gifs. I have a Plankton “maximum overdrive” image on ForTheLoss that still gets hits to this day.)

  33. Sean says:

    This thread is epic and still going.. you might even say:

  34. How I imagine Brandon would react to Ace Ventura right about now:

    Ace Ventura Shotgun

  35. Sean says:

    Well if you do need a clean pair, Ralph;

    Do NOT go in there!

  36. Sean’s pretty good at this gif thing, but not as good as me.

    Ace Ventura he's good

  37. Sean says:

    I’m flattered Ralph

  38. Alright, tell you what. Since it seems like you’re not going to make a new post, just make a comment here and we’ll stop.

    If not, I’m afraid we’re going to have to continue being annoying:

    Ace Ventura yelling

  39. Alright, you didn’t comment but I guess we’ll stop anyway.

    Real talk tho, stop procrastinating. Thx.

  40. Rid. Rid please. Show us a sign of life.

  41. I’m still alive lol. You guys should get on Skype sometime so we can talk there instead of spamming my posts.

    Take care now, bye bye then.

  42. Sean says:

    Rofl, damn Rid, that was an awesome comment, would have been a little better if you had of put a gif up to illustrate it, but anyway, well done.

  43. I looked for one but all I could find was one that was slowed down. I felt like that kinda took away from it. Oh well.

  44. Sean says:

    Lol, well at least you tried, if I wasn’t confined to my phone right now I would put one up

    Anyway, a great way to end our bazillion post thread, kudos

  45. Yeah, Sean was going to end up putting meatspin but I stopped him.

  46. Sean says:

    You’re a good friend Ralph, just one of those things I just wouldn’t let up with, I kept suggesting it pretty every second email, it was quite the inappropriate topic.

    @Brandon, re-read that sentence but replace all instances of “I” with “he”.

  47. I’m never making (read: tweaking) a website for you again.

  48. I just haven’t had much to write about lately. Why don’t you ever get on Skype?

  49. THIS IS ABOUT YOU, NOT ME.

  50. Sean says:

    Man… I think even the crickets got bored and left… :\
