I haven’t mentioned my Etsy shop or Idle Mouse in quite a while, but they do still exist. This month, I’m adding free gift wrap to all orders through Dec. 18! But that pixel Santa card only accompanies cross-stitch life meters, and I just sold out. Check back soon?
Painted this yesterday for a community art show organized by our church. I wanted transparency and clean edges, so I experimented in watercolor masked with frisket.
The illustration is of the water to wine story, so I used the overlapping colors to symbolize impossible transformation (blue + blue ≠ red).
David and I both took a break from working on Doggins this week, so for a change, I’ve been drawing other things and playing Zelda. And drawing Zelda things. This guy is a Korok, from The Wind Waker.
Last week was a rough one for us, working day and night to get Doggins ready for IGF entry, so we ran away to recover over the weekend. We pitched our tent near the summit of Mount Diablo, beautiful despite the recent fire. Ollie even got a rare chance to be a real dog and treed his first raccoon.
Finished designing this a while ago but only shared a piece of it. Here it is in context!

Snapped a ton of fresh screenshots today for our IGF entry, including this one of some interesting reading material Doggins picks up along the way.
Illustration I recently finished for a Design Feast publication examining the web as an enabler of creative projects. Nate is an excellent writer, so definitely check out the booklet and his ongoing exploration of creative culture.
Finally printed up some Brain&Brain cards yesterday, for IndieCade! We’re excited.
Pencil test for a new sequence we’re adding to the beginning of the game. Still a little cleanup to do when I build it digitally, and I’ll probably add some settling and a breath to the end.
Most of my printing is done for myself or my shop, but I occasionally print for hire. This job was a set of business cards for director/editor ASYBEN, letterpress printed with gold ink on French Muscletone Black 140# cover.
Still working on artwork for Doggins, but I occasionally get to draw something new, like Benjamin Franklin. He makes a brief appearance toward the end of the game, which is getting closer all the time!
