We at Zeta Shift have been hard at work trying to figure out who, indeed, is that Animorphs. Sometimes it’s a squid. Sometimes a bee. Sometimes a horrific nightmare of a pre-teen turning into a mouse. But for this Animorphs, rather than Marco, Cassie, or Jake, it is ZETA. Your art challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to create art of a member of Zeta shift ‘shifting’ into their Animorph form. Does Carrie turn into a cat? Is Beej a secret tardigrade? Is Heather a hummingbird? It’s all up to you!

This art contest will run until 5am PST. Please submit your entry in the form of .jpg, .gif, or .png to [email protected], with the subject line “Animorph Crossing. Please include which name you would like to be referred to on screen if you win!!!

But what do you win, you ask? You will win a Desert Bus 2021 t-shirt in the size of your choosing by Fangamer, as well as this year’s shiny gold DBloon!!

We’ve been inspired by bread this fine Zeta shift. And we hope you’ve gotten inspired too, because our art challenge this evening is to take classic works of art, and update them with bread! Whether it be Persistence of Memory with melting loaves, or The Son of Man with a hotdog bun instead of an apple, we want to see your creations!

If you would like to enter, here’s the fine print:
– Make sure to include bread in some way, but get as wild as you want with it!
– All entries should be in .jpg format for images, or a youtube link if you’ve made a video
– Please send entries to [email protected], or [email protected]
– Make sure your subject line is “Zeta Judge The Bread”. We want to make sure that we can find your entries in our inbox!
– Make sure that in your entry, you include a name you would like to be called on screen. If your entry gets chosen, we want to shout you out!

But now you’re asking yourself what’s in it for you. Well, not just the fuzzy and warm feeling of a job well done, but also a Desert Bus 2020 t-shirt!

Last but not yeast, you will also receive a Desert Bus 2020 Dbloon!

These cannot be purchased, and are only available to prize and contest winners.

Let’s not forget that on top of all the wonderful crafts that we have sent in every year, we also have some legit merch for your Desert Bus needs.



To start off, we’ve got the BRAND NEW Desert Bus 2017 Pinny Arcade Pin.

The BUG SPLAT, in all it’s delicious, goopy…glittery wonder. It is a limited edition pin and an official addition to the Pinny Arcade collection.

The pin will be available for purchase in the LoadingReadyRun store during Desert Bus (while supplies last), and proceeds will go to Child’s Play Charity.





We also have the yearly Desert Bus poster, drawn by Michael Lunsford and while it may seem empty now, it will slowly be filled with loads of memes, goofs, and other utter nonsense as the event goes on. It is limited purchase, and it supports all the things you love.

As with every year, profits from the poster go to Michael Lunsford, LoadingReadyRun (for Desert Bus admin costs), and Child’s Play Charity.




Next up to bat, we have the Desert Bus 10 softcover Photo Book. A book lovingly shot, edited, and laid out by Andrew Ferguson, the main Desert Bus photographer.
This is a preorder item and will be printed once the run is over.

As with every year, profits from photo books are split between Andrew Ferguson, LoadingReadyRun (for Desert Bus admin costs), and Child’s Play Charity.



And back by popular demand! We have our Desert Bus Shift Banner playmat! Use it when you sling spells or even as the largest mousepad you’ve ever seen.

This is a preorder item and will be printed once the run is over.

As with all Desert Bus merch, profits are split between LoadingReadyRun (for Desert Bus admin costs), and Child’s Play Charity.


And of course, as always, we have our new Desert Bus 2017 shirt by Fangamer. Check out more details on our longer post about that here.unnamed
