Sprites with Kilts

A journalist I know asked me to do some artwork for a piece she was doing on green energy in Scotland (I'll update with a link when it's posted). These are the pieces I came up with. The idea was to create a retro video game feel, a la old Space Quest. I think it owes a little something to the Superbrothers' recent manifesto for a native language of video games, too. Beep boop...

Fun with Watercolours

I've been interested in watercolours for a while. It's mostly this book that really lodged the medium in my brain.

Graham Roumieu's Bigfoot books are creepy, simple, and dark... and about some of the funniest stuff I've seen. So this fine Easter Monday, I broke out the dollarstore paint set I bought around x-mas. These are my little tests. One robot, one rabbit. But apparently, painting skills points cost spelling skills points... oh, art.
