I'm Jennifer Diane Reitz.
I'm 45, and I live in a polyamory with three spouses.
I once was a game designer and artist (Boppin', Lab Of Life, assorted projects for everyone from EA to Activision), now I am a web cartoonist.
I do Pastel Defender Heliotrope,
I just finished Unicorn Jelly
Both are science fiction stories about alien universes with unique, consistant, and alien physical laws.

I found out about Spore from members of my comic forum, who thought I would be interested.
And, golly, am I!

An odd note: in 1983 I sold a product design (for the C64 and Amiga) to Activision called 'Multiverse' which in numerous
ways was strikingly similar to was never actually made, of course. I got 10K for Multiverse. It was
my very first gig in the games industry. I stupidly spent the last 14 years still trying to get it made under new names, but...failed.
That's why I am a web cartoonist now. Much less stress.

I can't wait for Will Wright to finally give me the next closest thing to my own dream. I know he can make it happen! will be far better than my comparatively primitive 1983 invention, without question!
