nights and weekends

There’s some big news to announce for later this month. I will be exhibiting my 8 Bit Dreams series of Nintendo themed illustrations at the wonderful exhibition/project space Light Grey Art Lab in Minneapolis. It will be part of a group show called Nights and Weekends that explores the mad world of personal projects.

You can preview the works here with a song that always gets in my head by Surashuu. Original works measure 14cm x 14cm and are watercolour and black ink on watercolour paper. They will be available to purchase after the opening.

Not only that, on the 21st of September I will be hosting an all night comics jam lock in at the gallery. Staying up late always makes me think of Mario Party / Goldeneye / Perfect Dark marathons back in highschool.

This was done in the style of my 8 Bit Dreams series which will be showing at the Light Grey Art Lab on Sep20th.

fangamer x attract mode campbell whyte web

I’m pretty thrilled to reveal my new print for the upcoming Fangamer X Attractmode even that’s happening in Seattle on August the 31st. Please click the above image for a much larger version.

Last year I created this Animal Crossing print, depicting the most diabolical of boss battles.

With the theme of this years exhibition being “X”, I wanted to play with a bit of cross pollination of some of Nintendo’s prime franchises. See how many references, characters and creatures you can spot. You’ll be able to pick up prints from the Fangamer website after the exhibition opens.

UPDATEthe illustration is now available to purchase here.
