Okay, technically my summer vacation isn't over just yet, but it's close enough that I can start offering a
retrospective. So, aside from the usual hanging out with friends and volunteer work, I've kept myself busy
with a variety of projects both big and small.
Back in May, ModDB.com held a contest for new shirt designs. Mine was one of the three finalists, and is now
being sold through their online store here.
Below is the front to the shirt.
These are my new shoes- blank slip-ons after a week's worth of inking. You can't see it, but there's extra
stuff on the sides and the back. I filled the shoes with all of the things that have influenced my work and
personality. See how much you can name!
A school that a friend of mine goes to was wanting to do a mural based on Shel Silverstein's Where the
Sidewalk Ends, but couldn't because of copyright issues. The friend contacted me, and I designed a mural
loosely based on the cover. Shel Silverstein's books made a huge impression on me as a youngster, so this
project is one of my personal favorites.
The Choose-Your-Own Adventures of Bucky Swash is an online comic experiment I've been running on and
off this summer. The readers in the forum here
submit suggestions, wherein I take the best of those suggestions and turn it into the next page. It's been very
fun so far, and I'd like to see how far we can take it.
Now this some people might have seen. I was commissioned by WryGuy on the D-Toid forums to design him a
custom cover for Katamari Damacy, and I was more than happy to oblige. It took exactly a month's worth of
digital painting in Photoshop, but I'm very pleased with how it turned out. The fact that the editors wrote an
article on it made it even sweeter.
I did say this would be videogame related, yes? Well, you can't get much more videogame-related than talking
about an actual game! Commedia Dell'arte: The Game is my new major project- Commedia, for those who don't
know, is the ancient Italian improv theatre that literally invented slapstick. The game will allow the players to
control the major masked characters in what we're tentatively calling a "strategic storytelling game". If you're
interested, you can find out more info on our DevLog on the website
Well, that's all for now, I hope you all had a great summer, and I'll see you...
Hello, hello, what's this?
