Good Luck, Solrac
Sad News for AQW's Art-Lovers!
We've got some sad news today, guys. Solrac's contract ended and is not being renewed at this time. (He was not fired, because he did not do anything wrong.) He's an amazing artist and has produced some really incredible gear for AQWorlds!*
We wish him the very best in the future, and it's very possible that we may work with him again. Both Solrac and the AQWorlds team know that the door is always open for him to return at some point. We know that he will rock out wherever he goes, and whatever project he takes on next!
We hate to see him go, and gave him a thank you gift to show our appreciation. What the future holds for AQW's cybernetic artist, we don't know at this time, but we do know that everything happens for a reason, and that he'll bring all of his sweet art skills AND his love for candy with him.
* We have another artist moving to full-time to take over those responsibilities, so you will not see a drop in the number or quality of release content.

The Solrac Scoop
Solrac is a hero at heart, relentlessly attempting to defeat forces of evil—most of which are far too strong from him to handle. One such attempt left him mortally wounded, but with the divine healing powers of Aranx, Solrac was given a second chance at life. Solrac was also granted the gift of restoration, allowing him to partially recover from injuries. Turning to technology, he began repairing himself, improving himself, and making himself stronger—but these alterations come at a hefty price: with each new modification, a part of his sanity is stripped away. One of Solrac’s injuries left him mute, although he can still communicate via scroll scribing using his magical abilities.
In the real world, Solrac was born on February 28, 1902 (yeah, he looks dang good for his age) in the fabled lands of Chicago, Illinois. Solrac’s artistic inspiration comes from Hip-Hop and Comic Books, and has always dreamed of being able to pay his bills with his art. In March 2011, Solrac’s dream became his reality once he became AQWorlds’ ‘Maker of Random Stuffs’. Impressive job title, I must say! Solrac also loves Gummi Bears and Candy, and the sugary sweetness of treats fuels Solrac’s equally sweet artistic talents!
Sweet! I can't wait!
