Ever since I was a small child, I thought it would be super rad to make art for a video game: Light Grey Art Lab gave me and 26 other artists the chance to do just that with the Dream Arcade

I called my game Riot! Grave Bound. In a monotone-ous world, my hero has to collect colorful shards and coins in order to crank up that saturation slider. 

If you missed the opening on Friday, the show is going to be up until October 3rd. You actually get a chance to play all of the games! If you can’t make it to the gallery, you can download all the artists’ games from the Microsoft Windows App Store. You can also buy some prints from the Light Gray Art Lab online shop.

This lil’ illy is for an article in Pacific Standard about why it’s totally cool that we’re programming computers to lie to us (that includes you).

I crush into the stadium
with fellow fans and new friends
We share but one hope
that these Sports never end
The kick of the puck
and the dunk of the bat
The crack of the tackle
#1 fingers, foamy and fat
Endless beer, hotdogs

Join me, fellow fans

A little sneak peek of my splash page for my Dream Arcade piece. You’ll have to wait until the show opens in September to see the whole thing!

A little teaser I put together for my piece for Light Grey Art Lab’s Dream Arcade show!

I created some lettering and dusted off my acting skills for an animated short called “Western Civilization”! Part of Motion Poems, the short was written by Peter Jay Shippy and Directed & Animated by Alicia Reece.

Watch Western Civilization and enjoy!

Some more work in progress for my Dream Arcade piece! Now that I’ve done a few animations, I have so much more appreciation for all those pixelated characters that worked so hard to entertain me in my youth.

I’m going to be a part of Light Grey Art Lab’s upcoming Dream Arcade art show. This ain’t your typical art show, though—all of the pieces are actual playable video games! I’ve always wanted an excuse to try out pixel animation, and it’s so much fun! This is my first bit of animation for the show…more soon.

Just a little illustration I made for my twitter profile. If your browser is small, it probably won’t read as I had intended, so I guess just have your browser as wide as possible at all times? I don’t ask you for much do I?

Hi!
I know I’ve been absent for a few weeks, but I have a perfectly nerdy explanation. A Magic The Gathering Grand Prix was in town this past weekend, and of course I had to practice. It turns out that my professional Magic career began and ended in one day…it’s a good thing I have illustration to fall back on!
