A Brave Effort

A few years ago Trent Kusters and myself were throwing around some ideas for a game; this illustration shows the main protagonist, a character with flaming red hair you play from a young age, slowly watching her grow up during your adventures. The colour of the hair may make the character seem familiar. We were beaten to the punch on this one, and this seems to happen an awful lot. The only consolation we have is that our ideas were proven to be competitive  :)

Space Thing

Thought I'd post an illustration far a space-horror title that got lost in the void ... pretty sure this will never be published, seems a shame to keep it imprisoned.

Chess-Boxing Champion Dies of Cement Sickness

Four times Chess-Boxing champion Adem Ademovic tragically died on this day 15th October, 2032, from a terminal case of cement sickness. Ademovic was known for his Queen Sacrifice manoeuvre, followed quickly by a blistering Dempsey Roll and Gazelle Punch. Some believe his sickness was an assassination by the powerful K.K.D.Z.O., a conspiracy theory which is impossible to prove.

Tasty Tasty Grandpa

Here's a logo made for Grapple Gun Games iOS title Tasty Tasty Grandpa. You can check out the progress of the four week sprint project on Kotaku Australia's site here LINK.

In other news, so much has happened in the last five months I hardly know where to start. Armello is turning into quite a beast, which means no blogging for me! Hopefully I can drop some news about it soon :)

Controlling a Genie

This is what happens when I do warm-ups; I usually can't stop. This is kind of old-school! Better go do some work ...

Constantine, Hellblazer

"A deception that elevates us is dearer than a host of low truths." - Marina Tsvetaeva

More fun with some fan art and playing with technique. John Constantine's about my favourite comic character; his whole bad /good luck shtick really works for me. He's the ultimate hustler playing against the biggest mark there is. When I picked up a copy of Hellblazer #1 in the late 80's I was hooked and it was another one of those defining moments. Moments like finding his pal Lester sitting in a bath tub covered in insects - mistakenly believing he was having a bad trip - was mind blowing. There was something about the modern London setting that made it unbelievably creepy.

Here's a close up so you can see how messy the whole job is :)
