More exciting news! I did a TON of artwork for a GAME! As part of the big Target gift card push around the holidays, the marketing team decided to make a fun little Santa game that you can play right here! Or you can scan the QR code on the back of any of the Target gift cards.
We added a lot to the game this year, including a cool customization feature where you can ride along with Santa and a whole new level with owls, polar bears, and auroras.
This was such a fun project. It REALLY makes me want to work on more game stuff in the future!
It’s December now and that means I can finally post about the holiday gift card I did for Target! My buddy and the art director for this project, Ted Halbur, approached me to do a “penguin card” about 9 months ago. The turn around time was really fast, but I’m really happy with how it turned out. You can’t tell here, but there’s a really cool pearlized effect printed over all the snow that makes it look really shiny and wintery.
The process gif shows my initial sketch, a tightened up version, how I “built” the card illustrator, then adjusting color and adding texture in photoshop.
You can find the card at every check out aisle at every Target everywhere! Woo hoo!
I LOVED the Cat Fingers episode of Steven Universe that aired this week. The nod to Akira was so much fun I decided I had to do a Kaneda/Steven drawing.
Zombie Knight for #fridayknights
Because who doesn’t love zombies?!
Happy Halloween! Hope everyone has a fun one!
This illustration is inspired by (ripping off) Bob Kolar.
Another Friday Knight!
The ever loyal, excited and loving Chihuahua Knight. Lives for honor and treats.
Jacie and I just got back from two totally awesome weddings. The first was in the Colorado Rocky Mountains and the second was in the British country side.
We got to see tons of horses, the Colorado river, SNOW, a Royal Planetarium, Harry Potter’s house, and even a quick stop into the really killer comic shop, Gosh.
Traveling is hard work, but worth it when you get to kick it in so many cool places and hang with rad friends.
Retired Orc Knight for Steven Sugar’s #fridayknights
I love drawing orcs cause they are big and green and misunderstood. This guy is down on his luck, but still has some fight in him for sure.
Also, I wanted to draw someone who looked like they were from Super Punch Out (one of my all time favorite games.)
Jacie and I are in Colorado for a few days. It’s pretty cool here.
This is probably the most personal and sincere comic I’ve ever drawn.
