I’m sad to announce that Jeremy Pursell, Sapphirefoxx’s longest tenured employee, will be stepping away due to health reasons. Jeremy has been with SapphireFoxx for eight years. To put that in perspective, he was hired towards the end of Shifting Roommate’s comic run.
As an artist, Jeremy has created so many characters, backgrounds, outfits, and other props we’ve used over the years. He’s created nearly all of our protagonists over the years dating back to Different Perspectives. For locations, he’s made anything from Alistair’s Cave, to the wilderness of Mysteria, to many of our favorite character’s homes, and to even the starship Crossfire. Jeremy has tackled large projects such as organizing and overhauling our characters’ body type system. He is also the person who’s made all of our various animated spell effects. Even after he’s gone, we’ll still get to enjoy his work for a long time to come.
Jeremy has been an incredibly hard worker over the years, and was always up for extra work whenever it was available. He lives in Ohio, and loves working on music in his spare time. If you’re interested, you can check out Jeremy’s music collection on his website. www.illrecur.com
I want to wish Jeremy the absolute best with his recovery and hoping he finds nothing but success in whatever he does next. Lastly, Jeremy wanted to say “Thank you for the years over viewership and opportunity to help the community enjoy the content.”
On a somewhat related topic, I’m planning to put together a “Meet the Team” page for the SapphireFoxx staff. There’s a lot of people who work hard behind the scenes to bring you the animations and comics you love, so it would be nice for you all to get to know them a bit better than just a name in the credits.
