commander video reporting for duty

Gaijin is a cool company that makes cool games. I owned all their stuff as downloadable games, and I recently got the compilation that released for 3DS. Their games are always simple in concept, but with solid gameplay, trippy visuals and great music. Runner has always been in the forefront for my favorite of the six within the collection, and it was neat to see Runner 2 at PAX East, but I didn’t get time to play it do to the sheer craziness of the event.

I had an entry idea for a contest they were running back when Bit Trip Saga first came out, but I just couldn’t get it together to finish it up in time. I just kept plugging away at it little by little, and I think I’m finally am done with it. I wanted to integrate the titles for all six games of the Bit Trip series, so that they formed a running Commander Video, who is the main character and sort of mascot for the company.

skulls n’ swears

Posted in art, graffiti on 05/18/2012 by g00ba

I drew the above skull awhile ago at work, and it made me want to draw more stuff like it. Now I draw skulls n’ swears on my schedules every time the new one goes up. I’ll keep doing it, as long as I can keep thinking of good curse words. If you see me at work and you have a really good one make sure you yell it at me extremely loud.

More doodles on work related papers…

This is what happens when someone puts a drawing into their purse and spills Listerine all over it. Neato!

These ones are collaborations started at work with help from Ape, and then finished at home with Photoshop trickery.

Things that are random…

Adventure Time, great show or greatest show? Don’t be stupid, you know the answer.

I posted these before, but I tinkered with them a bit more to the point where I can say that I’m now finished with them. All done!

I made these ones for different people I know quite some time ago. Some of them got them, and some of them didn’t…

I should also mention that I’ve got this really cool traveling art book at my house, with a bunch of incredible work from artists all over the place. I have seriously dilly dallied with it, held onto it for way too long, and I must apologize to all the people that have been waiting for my ass to hurry up and send it off so that it may continue its journey. Proof that I am actually working on it, almost done!

I’ve got a few more things to show, but since this is already getting way too long as it is, I’ll save it for next time. Adios.
