American Fandango

Another PC Gamer piece. I'd been wanting to do "American Gothic " for a while but hadn't come up with a satisfactory mix. The editor suggested Grim Fandango and it all suddenly made sense, so here it is. I deco-ised (deco-rated?) the background a bit.

Hm, there's nothing gothic in Grim Fandango. I've never understood why people associated it to Tim Burton, other than because it has skeletons.

Never mind dude, it's large enough, I apologize. I was confused there for a second.

This is SO fantastic, but I wish I could download it...I only got the small scaled version but I would have liked the option to resize it myself :(

I only wanna put it on my blog & it would look best in full, that's all :\

It's amazing though. Thanks for making me laugh.

Cheers for this! I bought this issue too. The urge to butcher my magazine however was too great and the picture now resides on the wall next to my computer desk.



With bony hands I hold my partner/ On soulless feet we cross the floor/ The music stops as if to answer/ An empty knocking at the door/ It seems his skin was sweet as mango/ When last I held him to my breast/ But now we dance this grim fandango/ And will four years before we rest.

you..... YOU!... EVIL BASTERD!!!!

i baught this issue!

saw this on the back page with the comment "next issue"

and theres me in a blind flurried panic of excitement under the false assumption that this "next issue" would hold some information of a sequal to one of my much loved games!

YEEEEEEEEEEAAAARS of NOTHING! nothing at all!!!

and then this minute glimmer of hope as faint and rare as gold dust!

and NOTHING!!!! NOTHING AT ALL!!! NOT EVEN A MENTION OF THIS PICTURE!!!!

you toy with my heart sir! dangling the fruits of my desires only to toss them asside just as i reach out with all my hopes and dreams to fall into the deep, endless and infinitly dark chasm of disapointment

you tear my childhood from me sir.

i concede

nice art by the way

This is probably my favourite It's All Over since I've been reading PC Gamer. I'd like to put it up on my wall but I don't want to cannibalise the issue I have...oh, decisions decisions...
