Donkey Kong Klassic!

Hey long time no post? It’s crazy how much can change in just 2 months (for the better!). I’m 6 weeks into a new job as a lead production artist for a pretty great graphic design company. I got a great weekend coming up full of wrestling and a comic con. And now another art show is right around the corner! This was one I created tonight.

DKCOMP copy

I have 2 canvas prints of a Scorpion and Subzero piece. I also created a Mega Man “blue print” that I’m pretty proud. And also a pretty shitty Samus print. I created this one tonight (along with 2 other failures). I’m going to print it on canvas. So that 5 pieces for the show. And that’s enough.

I went for a retro arcade look.I wanted to make it really simple and graphical. My other pieces are very illustration heavy so I tried something simpler with this.

Game Art Galore!

Greetings fellow hoo-mins.

Super busy week has come to a close as tomorrow restarts regular busy week. WWE Raw on Monday is always fun to see live even though the current storylines are terrible. I’m glad they brought out the Wyatt Family after the cameras went off.

Vegas was beautiful trash as usual. The gaming convention was cool. Though kinda forgettable this year.

Artcade in Rockford was very cool. Met some really nice and talented artists. The gallery was set up perfectly. Sold 3 out of my 5 arts. I can’t complain…I wasn’t planning on selling any. They are posted below:

“The Last of Nes.” Sold. I didn’t like how this one printed so I didn’t want to put it in. But my friend gave the wise advice of “Just do it.” I believe I was told this was the first piece to sell at the show.

“The Hunger”. It didn’t sell but was instead traded for some cool art I seen. I figured it wouldn’t. Pac Man isn’t really all that hot as he used to be and this is pretty creepy.

“Mushroom Kingdom”. Sold. This seemed to be the most popular. Mario is still the king of gaming afterall. *Note to self: more mario=more profit*
megaman
“Mega Hard Times”. The last piece that didn’t sell. I really thought it would. But, hey, there’s always next time.
sonicconflat copy
“Gotta Go Fast.” Sold.

If anyone is interested in the Mega Man piece, let me know. These are framed and matted too by the way. And I’m not asking much for it anyway. But, yeah, next time who knows what I’ll draw…but I’m excited to be getting into galleries. Haven’t done one since high school.

Halloween is getting closer! Wooooooooo.
