Global Game Jam 2019

Last Weekend, I participated in the Global Game Jam 2019 at Next Door Cafe! with the Indie Game Developers Association in Chicago!

I’m a bit of a yokel, but I love walking through the city. I feel a sense of freedom an adventure, plus it’s a nice change of pace that shook me out of my current rut a little.

Raccoon Month Day 4

Another bit of the scans I’ve done for Raccoon Month! These characters are a lot more obscure, from niche video games to really old cartoons and anime. Doing this small thing reminded that Pocky and Rocky existed, and I have a new craving to play more video games again!

Raccoon Month Day 3

Another batch of Raccoon Month Scans. This was a larger ratio of obscure to known characters to me. First time ever drawing Meeko, or any Disney character actually, unless you count Marvel stuff but I don’t.

Tookit from the 2011 Thundercats show was a notable one to me. I never kept up with anything related to that since I wasn’t really into Thundercats or other 80’s properties. I’ll say it has great designs though, so I will give that show a look when I get the time.

Pith Possum and Obediah the Wonder Raccoon was a new one for me! It’s a pretty funny alternative to Darkwing Duck!

I had never heard of The Raccoon or Nocturnals until I did this and I’d have to say that I’m a new fan now! I love Dan Brereton’s art! I did my best but really I can’t say that I did that art justice and you really need to check out Nocturnals and Dan Brereton’s artwork!

Raccoon Month Day 2

More Raccoon Month Scans. This is where I start finding more obscure characters and ideas to draw and showcase.

Mark Brown and Kevin Rose are my favorites of the entire run of doing this! I also did a bit of stretching when it came to Don-Chan, from Street Fighter, who is a tanuki and not a raccoon, but I like to take artistic license.
