A little while ago I was asked by Joe Marsh and AIGA Colorado to participate in Bordo Bello 2011, a fundraiser to help the arts community in Denver. The project line was simple: create a skateboard deck to be auctioned off at the 2011 event. Go nuts, basically.

Blogger has a cap on image size, so here's larger version for your perusal: EMBIGGEN.

I didn't do much skateboarding as a kid, but I was pretty into videogames, though I didn't have any of my own until I was able to buy them myself. This is more or less a stream-of-consciousness drawing, relating my hazy, romanticized memories of the videogames I played as a kid.

I asked my best buddy Diego Garcia (who you may know as @radstronomical) who is a dedicated pixel-smith to help me out with a couple elements of the drawing. The most important, obviously, was this arcade screen.
And here are some process do-dads.

Lady Macbeth and the Lichking's Bride

A little while ago Kate Craig commissioned me to do a little piece for Emily Carroll's birthday, requesting only that Lady Macbeth be involved. Kate and Emily are so awesome. This is what came about.
This was the sketch for project that I have to keep under my hat for the next couple of months. I threw this one out and did another that's pretty related and is also better. Both this and the Lady Macbeth piece were posted on Twitter at some point over the last few weeks. Just one of the perks of following yours truly.

It's been awhile since I read Macbeth, but I was still able to count off the different people Macbeth killed!

Trying to figure out the other project:

I don't really remember the deal with this set.

I have a few other Game of Thrones portraits in the works, I'm working on a huge piece right now that should be up by the end of the month.
