Game Time!


Here are a few of the little icons I made for Alamofire. They have a game on FACEBOOK called PackRat. It was fun to design the little icons. They appear about half this size in the game. I had to keep them as simple as I could so they would read OK at the small sizes. The game is played by finding and collecting icons that are in a set. One way to get the icons is to steal them from your friends... who then aren't your friends anymore,right? Anyhoo, looks like a lot of fun. Worth signing up on FACEBOOK just to play!

I have successfully collected all of your bees in the game! Wasn't easy, but I still have a few friends left! :)

I came across your blog through illustration friday. Nice work! Yay for having heard of packrat, i'm a fan of icons :) Anyway, just wanted to say your art is very nice looking, even where you've been unsatisfied with the results (always seems to happen when I draw too that I find something that didn't come out how I imagined it...). I did wonder though how you made all your pencil(?) sketches red? Did you colorize the line art in photoshop? Drawing with a red pencil? Something else? It feels a lot less plain than black and white, so I like the effect it makes!

Jessica... sometimes I sketch with a light blue COL-ERASE pencil then go over it and "clean it up" with a Carmine Red COL-ERASE pencil.

Sometime changing up what I am drawing with will be a change that makes me draw a little differently.
