Nate's Ascent is coming



I have been squirreled away all year working on a video game app for mobile devices named Nate's Ascent. It's about a boy, a former child soldier, Nate. When a gargantuan alien space craft is discovered, abandoned, Nate goes from expendable to necessary…

Isn't that intriguing enough?

The game is a side-scrolling sci-fi/horror story. It combines a gravity-flipping-jumping-game with a space-exploration-mystery told in comics form.  

I co-created the game and contributed all the artwork in collaboration with fellow co-creator, Andrew Knight, who programmed all the programming.  

We are very proud of our creative efforts and eager to share the game with you. If you're into that sort of thing. Hell, even if you're not.  

Nate's Ascent is available in the app store on August, 08 2015. View the trailer and some other info here: www.natesascent.com 

We are also having a release party for the game, if you are in the Atlanta area, at Criminal Records on August 13th from 6-8pm. Poster below. 




By the way I have a few new social media personas:

Holy Day: Got your cyanide capsule ready?

Realizing they would not make it back to Earth in time, Thorsten and Nik Nik infiltrated a desert planet death cult just to gain access to the pinnacles necessary to broadcast their birthday wishes to you, Brother Cucumber.

Unreasonable Expectations

I showed the last post to my son and asked if he liked it. He said:
"Uh. Will you draw Castle in the Sky now?"
"All of it?"
"Yes, all of it. Will you?"

No. The answer is no.

The Future Expires Us

I was hired last year to work on a mural for the new offices of an Atlanta design/advertising studio. The title and theme of the project was "The Future Inspires Us", their corporate motto. After several rounds of preliminaries the project got the kibosh, because of changes in the managerial structure at the firm. Basically the person who took over had no interest in executing some other dude's project.

So it goes…

But I was revisiting the sketches today and thought they were worth posting online. So here they are.

Local art issues


A friend of mine gave me a heads up that I was referenced in this week's Creative Loafing online. 

It looks like they used a pic of me working on my mural from last year's Living Walls Conference to illustrate a post about art issues in the city. Check it out. If you live in Atlanta and care about art this article will be of particular interest to you as there is a proposal on the table to require private residences and businesses to vet planned art through the city. If it went through it would mean if you wanted to paint a mural on your house or put a sculpture in your yard you would have to clear it with your neighborhood groups, city officials and City Council first. 

From my perspective this is absurd and an infringement on our constitutional right to freedom of speech, in the name of potentially avoiding the possibility of offending someone in the future. 

We'll see what happens.  

And since you need something to look at, here is the birthday card I made for my niece this year. Gangsta Monkey in Paradise:

Evergreen

Was Fred's evergreen roll spiked by Basho?
Maybe.
Basho would deny it.
