Fighting the Undead Again

Every once in a while I get roped in to doing some acting at the Haunted House I worked at for a long time. Conceptually I have a lot of ideas for it, but for many reasons they'll probably never see light. Anyhoo, took a few pics of the costume (and the riot shield I made), and shopped one of the images for fun

SJ Winston Vector Sketch

Played around with some vector stuff tonight at the weekly art night I attend. Did a comp in Illustrator, just to get some colors down, practice that pen tool.

Old School Game Manual

I've been on a retro kick lately (real original, I know). I like finding old comics and game boxes and magazines at Half Price Books. I imagine what adventures some kids in the 80s and 90s had with this stuff. Anyhoo, I was going to do a Nintendo game cartridge, but decided to do this one first.

art direction?

So I've been working on a card game off and on for, like, 8 years now. Still trying to figure out the card layout. I feel like I'm getting closer, but not quite there yet. I found some previous comps with which to compare the current direction.

The bottom image is a test comp. I want the art to look pulp comic-y I think. I need to tighten up the phobia icons, and pick a final color palette.
