Spent the night making an entry for a Star Wars Dark Side contest being held on WeLoveFine.com.

You can have up to 5 entries…so here’s my first one: Boba Fett.

12246-design-submit_mail Untitled-1

I hand drew Boba and scanned him into photoshop to add the color and “splatter” effect. I also submitted it to 3 or 4 shirt design websites because these wouldn’t make a bad shirt. If those sites stop with the excessive amout of half assed Doctor Who and Adventure Time parody designs maybe they can make way for some variety. But I doubt they will.

Anyway, I think there’s a voting aspect to the design so I’ll update when it’s on the website also.

Ninja Vanish

I drew this tonight. It was hand drawn for the most part. Except for the background and colors. That’s Photoshop. I was in a ninja mood. I was going to draw a dead cowboy. Then I thought of Skull Cowboy. Then I thought of the deleted scenes from The Crow of Skull Cowboy. Then I thought of Brandon Lee. Then I thought of Bruce Lee. Then I thought of Kung Fu. Then I thought of Ninjas.

And then I did this. That’s really all there is to it.

Retro Arcade Art

So I finally got around to playing Super Mario Galaxy and got a ‘lil idea. I’m a retro gamer and since I adore the classic Mario games I figured why not design some cabinet art as if Super Mario Galaxy was made in the late 80’s as an arcade game.

So I came up with this:

Galaxy

I looked at the old Mario Bros arcade cabinet side art for inspiration. Just flat colors. Simple shapes.
I even did this for fun:

You think that looks right for the era?

So you’re 12 years old. It’s Friday afternoon and you’re in your local arcade with a fist full of quarters.Would you play this game?

Been on a Mario binge lately. I can’t get enough of that chubby little plumber.

Also for those interested there’s a couple new Zen Arcade Strips up at the Tumblr. It’s all going somewhere trust me. We’re going to get a few more strips down and launch a nice clean looking site to host them.

In other news there could be a big change to the website in the coming week. I feel that I’m pretty close to getting a career position that I’ve been wanting. If I get it…I’m turning heel. I’m switching up this sites look and I’m going to drop some pipebombs. Stay tuned.
