Nintendo Evolution

Nintendo Evolution
I went ahead and illustrated the evolution (and possible future) of Nintendo controllers. I don't think anyone will mind that I stuck with the main systems and left out the Virtual Boy, right?

I imagine that Nintendo will further revolutionize gameplay in that the "Wii UH" (Wii U Hyper) will encourage players to work together, literally. Since the controls would be integrated directly into the flat-screen monitor, one player would assume the left half of the controls and the other would man the right side. They could lift the TV up and move it around for the motion sensors, which would be cool because you could hook the Wii UH up to another monitor (smaller, for humor's sake) and you could see split screen stuff.

For maximum ridiculousness, you could sync up several Wii UHs together and everyone would be running around the living room in pairs holding up flat-screens. Sounds like a pretty fun time, I think.

Super CookNight 2: Eat American

Super CookNight 2: Eat American
Our CookNight is hosting the second-ever SUPER COOKNIGHT on July 3, so I made this poster just for funsies. I made a poster for the first one, as well, which was titled "Gobbledown," as it was during the Thanksgiving holiday. Since this one is the weekend of Independence Day, it's dubbed "Eat American." BON APPETITE!

It's Adventure Time!

Adventure Time
Threadless is currently having an "Adventure Time" Design Challenge. Here's my entry!
And HERE is my description:

Treasure hunting has always been a popular mode of adventuring, and one at which Jake & Finn are very skilled. It helps that people wearing bright yellow shirts are often known to hide treasure underneath their clothing. Also, shouting is a very important part of adventuring, as shown here.

Here's the direct link to vote for my submission on the Threadless page: Adventure Time

And, if this illustration pleases your eyes, you can reblog my Tumblr post to help spread the word. I'd love you forever. Let me know if you vote and/or reblog it. I'm going to do a THANK YOU illustration afterwards with everyone who lent a hand.

Thanks, everyone!

The Goon That Laid the Golden Egg

The Goon That Laid the Golden Egg
"The Goon," created by Eric Powell, has been one of my favorite comics for a long time now. Great humor and a nice variety of art styles, The Goon never fails to entertain.

So, I figured it was time to do some fan art. Here's our lovable roughneck leading a horde of demonic chickens into a clobberin' fest. And yes, he is wearing a giant chicken costume. TO BLEND IN.

Bow Ties Are Cool

The Eleventh Doctor
Here's Matt Smith as the Eleventh Doctor. His psychic paper reinforces what we're all thinking and what he's been saying for the past two seasons. As you can tell, I love Doctor Who. As a matter of fact, I'm about to watch the fifth episodes of Season 6 right now.

This illustration was originally intended as a "Matt Smith practice drawing." I'm planning to do a more art-intensive illustration in the near future. With watercolor and such!
