Powerpuff Girls 15th Anniversary

The Powerpuff Girls is one of my favorite shows ever, so I am really excited to be a part of the 15th anniversary art tribute blog.

My piece is based on the Gang Green Gang, possibly my favorite villains in the series. Click the image above to get a bigger view, and please check out the other amazing pieces on the blog, which was organized by Chogrin.

On a related note, I've always loved when animated shows get their own movies because they amp everything up; like the animation, the effects, the music, the story, etc. The Powerpuff Girls Movie is one of my favorite examples of that, and really one of the only well-done examples I can think of from recent history, aside from maybe The Simpsons Movie. I love when they keep the essence of a show and add polish for the big screen, as opposed to making it CG and thinking that's enough. Not that I dislike CG, but I would love it if, for example, Underdog, Yogi Bear, and the upcoming Peabody and Sherman movie had been done in a polished hand-drawn version of the original shows.

Here's an X-Men drawing I did just for fun in my spare time. I read a few X-Men comics a while back and really started to appreciate the pink, blue, and yellow color schemes of their uniforms, so I wanted to do a drawing that stuck to those colors as much as possible.

Video Game Console Girls 2014 Calendar

I've been secretly working on this as a side project for quite a while. I am very excited that it is finally completed and in-hand, so I can now offer it up for sale!

Video Game Console Girls is a 2014 calendar illustrated and designed by me, with pin-ups inspired by the design aesthetics of classic video game consoles.

I got the bug to do a pin-up calendar a while ago, and the more I thought about it the more it made sense. It would be a lot of fun to do, good for a semi-long-term personal project, and would ultimately be something I could offer for sale via my site.

As a designer and video game enthusiast I've always had a special, if weird, appreciation for the design of old video game hardware, and that seemed like a unique theme for the calendar that would also make for fun drawings.

You can find more info and buy your own calendar on the product page! Only $20 plus shipping!
Makes a great gift! Makes a great non-mechanical method of tracking time in units of days! The drawings of cute girls continue to work well after the calendar year is over!
