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.

This was a recent commission for my 8 Bit Dreams series.

I’m still doing them, and they’d would probably make an amazing Christmas present for your video game obsessed love one.
While the majority of the ones I’ve done in the past have been from the Nintendo Entertainment System, I have also done commissions of 80’s cartoons like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Heman. There have even been some more recent video games in the mix as well.

You can order your own over here.

This is my piece for the upcoming VERSUS exhibition put together by Fangamer and Attract Mode for this years PAX.

My work is about the greatest boss battle to feature in any game ever. The never ending task of pulling up weeds in Animal Crossing. It didn’t matter if you had earned the golden shovel, dug up the T-Rex fossils, caught the Coelacanth and collected every Gyroid. Those weeds just keep on coming.

Prints will be available to purchase at the exhibition and online.

8 Bit (requiem for a) Dreams

They are done, and here they are. I have compiled the first years worth of 8 Bit Dreams illustrations in to one slide show, for your viewing pleasure. I mentioned in an earlier post that I have chosen to put the project on hold because I’ve been offered to opportunity to work on my graphic novel that I’ve been developing for a few years now.

When I started the 8 Bit Dreams project, I thought it would just be a small side project, that I could do without interfering with all my other work. I was very wrong. It would up consuming nearly all of my creative time during the year. Each illustration took about an hour to complete, including researching the game. Then there was scanning, cleaning up, resizing, uploading, posting, listing on etsy. All of these “little” parts add up to a lot of time.

I’d like to thank all of the people who shared my project with their friends, it’s great encouragement to see site hits rise, to see that people are paying attention. Thanks to all those who purchased work, and commissioned custom illustrations. It made it easy to justify to my family why I was doing this when money was coming in to pay the rent or buy groceries. It’s easier to take pride in your work when you can see how it is helping provide your basic needs. Thanks to my partner for putting up with me during this ridiculous endeavour, her support was invaluable.

For now, many of the illustrations are still available to purchase on my etsy store, head over there to see if the one you like is still available. The greatest thing you could do would be to share the video with friends, or purchase a work. That’d mean the world to me.

In the future, I’d love to exhibit the illustrations, so if any galleries are reading this, this might be your opportunity! Lots of people have suggested I publish them in a book, I’ve looked at print on demand options, and right now that’s not really looking too feasible an option. I might need to look in to a few different possibilities. If any publishers want to pick it up, I’d love to hear from you too.

Music for the video was provided by the wonderful Surasshu. Head over to his site for more incredible tunes.
