It was my first time making Cheermotes, and this is the result! Rifkin of BaseTrade, Starcraft commentator fame desired a very retro pixel style. Each Cheermote concept was his requested content. I tried to maintain the pixel vibe, but realized pure pixel art might not read well for the intended application, so I used a hybrid of pixel animations (produced in photoshop) and motion graphics (using Animate CC, formerly Flash). I feel the results turned out well.
A fun little image I did to celebrate all the fun my wife and I have had playing Destiny together. She is a real bad@$$ in that game!
Picture for a very special buddy of mine’s 6th birthday! He really likes Huskies!
The wife and I were away from eachother for about six months because of her work. This work was done to cheer her up while we were away.
Happy Terror/Treat day! This is for my wife whom I’m missing very much while she’s away for work. This image is inspired by her love of scary fun-things as well as her love of our little ham-star, Misha. I hope you Enjoy!
Though I am mired in my current work, I find that it can be a good thing to take small breaks from the grind to reignite my passion for artistic work by tackling smaller more focused projects.

This allows me to push aside a lot of the extra considerations that can weigh down exploration of design while I’m working on such a complicated project as my Indie game Mecromage.

I felt this could be a nice avenue that would allow me to stretch a little and focus on quick creative execution of some small projects. I contacted BaseTradeTV and offered some graphics support for the channel, they accepted.

I’ve been privileges enough to do some work for Collectible Supplies from time to time. This was a very fun and challenging coupon to design, but I feel like in the end the work paid off! Still, I feel like I could have done a better job with the message text.
