IF "Chicken"

This time around the word for Illustration Friday was "Chicken." Since I've decided to build up portfolio of video game-related artwork I racked my brain trying to come up with something fun that involved chickens.

Simon reminded me of the chicken attack in Zelda. Perfect!

I remember watching the boys when they were young, playing Zelda - and how weird it was to see Link being chased around by a bunch of chickens. So here it is - my version of a Chicken Attack from Legend of Zelda!

Super Meat Boy Wallpaper for Desktop & iPhone

I've had some requests for wallpaper of this Super Meat Boy illustration I did last week, so here it is - thanks for the compliments!

Someone asked for 1920 x 1200... just click and then drag it to your desktop.

... and I made a version for iPhones too!

Edmund and Tommy at Team Meat, the creators of Super Meat Boy, both sent me nice notes that they liked my illustration - many thanks, guys!

Illustration Friday: Deja Vu!

Have you heard of Super Meat Boy? My son, Simon, has been playing the video game like crazy recently. I'm not a gamer myself - but I've watched Simon play quite a bit and I have to admit, its a pretty wild concept. Its hard to drag your eyes away from the carnage of a little red cube of meat being slaughtered in a splash of blood over and over as he tries to dodge all manner of deadly buzzing saws.


When I looked at last week's Illustration Friday word, "deja vu", it made me think of Super Meat Boy... how he must surely experience a feeling of deja vu each time he leaps and zips past the blood stains left behind by his earlier incarnations.

Does he have a vague feeling of distress... does he realize he's been by here before and didn't succeed in rescuing Bandage Girl... ?
