this is finally up here! i managed to track Allie down when i had a camera. this was actually done way back in about november. she asked me to design her a tattoo, and she gave me the only details that it was to be of a winged cross. so i drew a few different versions and showed them to her, and she liked this one. i did not, i repeat, i DID NOT do the tattooing, just the design. i did refer to my #1 tattoo artist, nick manco of studio 13 in fort wayne, indiana. they are the best in the business in the area. i highly HIGHLY recommend them, as i have taken 3 friends there and got my own tattoo done there, and the next one i get someday will be done there too. but anyways, i wonder if i should focus more on creating tattoo designs. very fun
i made a Tetris cake at work today (Dairy Queen)... it was my first cake and i didnt do as well on it as i would have liked but oh well i thought it was kinda exciting-ish i guess one of my best friends made a kick ass Pacman cake the day before you should see it [link] so yah... its been pretty slow at work hahaha
This was one of our final assignments for class, we had to choose one aspect of gaming history and write an exploratory essay with an accompanying poster piece. I quite enjoyed making this, so I figure it might as well get posted up now. Plus, it looks all lonely printed out on my wall at home~ I was originally going to cover the history of ALL brands, but ended up being so close to deadline I really had to cut it down to just Nintendo. Which is not such a bad thing, they're my personal favourite and have had the most experimentation with controllers of just about any brand. I've divided the controllers along the lines of which market/style they were aimed at, being the immersive 'feel' of gameplay on the blue line, or fine tuned for a more hardcore market on the red line. Yellow represents the main line, or default for the console of that generation. As far as I am aware, the only one I am missing is the dance mat from the NES era, which I may update later. If you know of any other obscure controllers, please note me! I'd like to make sure this is very thorough, but I will not include aftermarket controllers unless they had significant impact on mainline, like the Hori MiniPad. Enjoy!
Starring Jasper and Ember, 12 adorable photos, many of which I've never put on the internets. Unlike most calendars of cats that have them piled uncomfortably into a basket with a white sheet for a background, these were taken of the cats behaving normally outdoors, staring baffled at the camera aside.
So far this is my only calendar plan for this year. I may be able to put an artwork one together at the last minute but between stupid family infecting a computer with viruses, getting it wiped and then switching to it as my main work computer arts kinda all over the place.
I have for a long time been fascinated by Japanese tattoos, and most of my own tattoo-designs are influenced by this great passion of mine.
After drawing a Hanya-mask, I decided to draw more in that style. I might draw more Hanya´s, but also Noh - demons. So here´s my first attempt drawing a dancing demon. Inspired by the Hanya-like demons in Japanese Noh theatre.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have unfortunately experienced that my works are getting stolen, so that explains why I added all the watermarks, etc. If you want to buy any my art as prints, then please send me a note or e-mail, and I will then submit a clean version of the submission.
It´s a bit fast drawn/simple, since it´s only a design-suggestion. If you are interested in requesting tattoo-design from me, then feel free to contact me
Drawn with ink/copics. Worktime: around 3 hours.
