IamA Rikki Simons and Tavisha (Rikkitikki Tavicat)!
Thanks everyone! We're We're done! You've been great!
I (Rikki Simons) am a voice actor, writer, and artist. I am most famous for being the voice of the robot in a dog suit, GIR from Invader ZIM. As a writer I am known for my science fiction and fantasy novel Hitherto a Lion. Original illustrated books and comics that I created with Tavisha-Wolfgarth-Simons under the studio name of Rikkitikki Tavicat include Super Information Hijinks: Reality Check!, Ranklechick and His Three Legged Cat, ShutterBox, and Rhumbaghost, now The Trinkkits. I am also a background painter in animation (color design on Invader ZIM and The Jackie Chan Adventures) and comics colorist (I Feel Sick for SLG, Invader ZIM for Nickelodeon and Oni, Edward Scissorhands for IDW, Kid Gravity and Little Gloomy for Disney, and many others). The original comics and books I create with Tavisha can be read and purchased at tavicat.com.
I (Tavisha Wolfgarth-Simons) am a German-Japanese American artist and I produce my art and stories under the studio name of Rikkitikki Tavicat. During my two decades of publishing manga-influenced comics in the American market, my comics and illustrations have been published by Nickelodeon, Tokyopop, Digital Manga, Fox, Disney and SLG Publishing, among many others. Original illustrated books and comics that I create with Rikki Simons include Ranklechick and his Three-Legged Cat, Super Information Hijinks: Reality Check!, ShutterBox, and now The Trinkkits. @ Tavicat, a comic about our cats, can be read and at tavicat.com.
We are currently finishing up a Kickstarter to self-publish our collected comic series Super Information Hijinks: Reality Check! You can see that here: Here's our Kickstarter! We have some cool rewards there, including me (Rikki) doing voice record messages and sketches of GIR.
We are excited to take your questions! EEEEEEEeeeee!!!
