This Spring, 2014 a few family member of mine dedicated themselves to be apart of a triathlon. They decided to make motivational family Keyes Jerseys. I was called into action in effort to make this a reality.
The keys’ esthetic was a bit on the ‘techy’ side, but I’d been deep into my game project when I designed them, so some of the content philosophy bled over. The intent was to ensure that each key was interesting, being that they are blown up about tens times larger than an actual key would be. I enjoyed the the challenge of making print quality interesting compositions out of enlarged every day objects. Though, the hurtle and real life issues made the project more of an obstacle than it should have, I did quite enjoy the result.
Being that the style easily could be something that could fit within the context of my science-fantasy platformer, Mecromage, I decided to try to use them as in game assets you’ll be able to interact with. I’m always looking forward to unlocking doors to new possibilities, thanks to my family for being motivating and inspiring, never stop exploring new thresholds.
My good friend, and fellow Marine is still active and being deployed around the world. He has a fantastic family and two wonderful kids. I thought it would be nice to draw them each something they would like in honor of their sacrificing time with their devoted father.
The young guy received a spider-man image, and for the young lady who quite enjoys My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, I illustrated this poster that draws inspiration from the Eagle Globe and Anchor.
This was quite different content than I usually work on, so it was very fun and enjoyable. Something about drawing really cute and fun things makes you smile more while you’re working.
Thanks to all the service members and their families that sacrifice so much more daily than most of us can ever imagine. – Joshua Keyes
Cheerful I made to Cheer Katelyn! I wanted to print it and mail it with a letter, but my printer isn’t working very well. I put together a fun video of it as well, so Katelyn can watch. I hope you enjoy! Miss you Katelyn!
This is a really fun concept I created for a Story book project. The children’s book authored by Gene Benny featured lively house hold item personified as fun characters. One of the more interesting characters was the toilet who I call Toilet Tom.
