Cupcake Cry


Drawing my friend's daughter. She's crying. That's okay.

The Process of Traced Images (Shen Style)


I thought I'd share the process that I use to do those "realistic looking drawings". It's more a craft than an art. It's tracing and then inking. The hardest part, and this will come from practice, is ultimately choosing which pieces to trace and then how to ink it. Color choice is also important. I've learned that for me that solid colors and rare usage of shadows and highlights gives the best results.

Anyhow, just keep at it if this is the type of craft you like. I certainly don't claim it to be fine art in any way. Again, I've just become adept with the tools that I have.

Project Gameboy Cover - 011 - Adventures of Star Saver


I've decided to draw every single original Gameboy game cartridge cover art. There's 733 titles on this Wikipedia list and is the most comprehensive one I can find. I guess I'll see you in 2 years when I really hope to have it all done.

Every one of these will be offered as 2" magnets for your fridge over at Probably Fun.

While I continue to draw out every single Gameboy cartridge out there, I thought it'd be fun to take a break and work on some fake titles too.

Here we have Facebook on the Nintendo Gameboy. LIKE.

Game Tokens - Adventurer Needs Food Badly


Some of the tokens for this single-player puzzle game I'm working on. Just for kicks. Pitched it to Gamewright. We'll see what feedback they have or if this goes into the "indie published" bucket.

Fun fact: Food tokens have meat on one side and a turnip on the other. It's to appease those who may or may not be carnivores/vegetarians.

Comic - Panic Button


True story. After it happened I stuck my head through the garage door to see if I woke up the family. After half a minute I proceeded to work.
