Happy Thanksgiving to our American Viewers! We'll be gone for the next four days stuffing our faces with turkey and cranberry-flavored food products, so my advice is to sit down in front of your TV and watch Nick for the next 96 hours until we get back. Peace out. Posted by Hello

JENNY IN 3-D! Our fan art has reached a whole new level as one of our viewers created his very own XJ9 toy. Posted by Hello

The artist says: "My name is Edwin and I live in Panama City (Republic of Panama, to be
exact, in Central America), I'm a big fan of your show "My life as a teenage robot", I think it's one of the best cartoons I've seen in my life, and I've seen a lot of them (some even never seen up there in the US)." Posted by Hello

Edwin says: "This is my first attempt to make a model of a character that I didn't create, but there's not much XJ-9 merchandise out there (hint, hint, a Jenny toy with exchangable limbs would be amazing)." I'd buy it!

TODAY IS YOUR LUCKY DAY! We here at Teenage Roblog have come across the official blueprint plans for model XJ9. Although these are top secret and shown only on a "need to know" basis, I figured what the heck, why not put them on the world wide web for any weirdo with a browser to gawk at. Posted by Hello

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH! Meet Todd. He should be the next new character you guys meet when the Christmas special airs next month. We've talked a lot about storyboards and backgrounds on this blog, but the character designers on MLAATR are amazing. Take a look, not just at the main characters, but at all of the supporting cast and extras. How do they do it?

Seonna Hong in the New York Times

Teenage Robot background painter Seonna Hong was featured in an article in the New York Times on Friday:

The 14th Annual Print FairSeventh Regiment ArmoryPark Avenue at 67th StreetThrough Sunday

By now an established New York institution, the annual Print Fair of the International Fine Print Dealers Association is in its 14th year of promoting prints, showing a wide range in new and old techniques, spreading savvy about them and, yes, finding them good homes with caring buyers. Suffice it to say that the show is a winner. Find your own masterpieces here, and good hunting.

Seonna Hong 'Animus' Seonna Hong, a Los Angeles-based artist, won an Emmy this year for her animation work on an episode of the television cartoon series "My Life as a Teenage Robot." This delightful exhibition, her first solo show in New York, presents paintings made for a yet-to-be-published picture book, illustrating a story about a little girl and a vicious black dog.

FAN ART: Brad hugs a contortionist! Well, the title of the picture says it's Brad and Kayla, but how did she get her arm around him like that? And why is Brad hugging her instead of Jenny? You know Jenny is supposed to end up with Brad, right? Or was that Sheldon? Or Don Prima? Or that guy from the last episode of Season One? Or Silver Shell? Or....? Posted by Hello
