[edit] Event Description

The Florida State University Student Life Building will welcome internationally recognized web cartoonists, Matt (BFA 98) and Mike Chapman, on Friday, November 7, 2003. The program will be held in the Student Life Building theatre at 7:30 PM. This event is free and open to the university community and general public. The creators of Homestar Runner, The Brothers Chaps, will present brand new material from their soon to be released CD and DVD. Open discussion with the audience is planned and questions will be fielded by the creators. Named "It Web Cartoonists" by Entertainment Weekly, June 2003, the brothers' site, homestarruner.com, attracts 200,000 unique visitors a day and has received nods from Time magazine, The New York Times, and even Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Mike studied photography at the University of Georgia and attended graduate school for a time at Louisiana State University focusing on art. Matt is a 1998 BFA graduate of Florida State's film school. Homestar Runner made his first appearance in 1996 in the pages of an early attempt at a children's book. By the year 2000, the site was launched. The creation and upkeep of the site is now both of their full-time jobs. The brothers serve as the voices for all of the characters on the flashed-animated site, with the exception of Marzipan, the only female character played my Mike's girlfriend Missy Palmer. Visit http://www.homestarrunner.com to experience why these two brothers have developed such an enormous cult following.
