1983 TOWARDS TOMORROW
From somewhere, a transmission...

Here's some drawings I did for the upcoming release of Cave Story on Nintendo Wiiware, as reported by Play Magazine. 




There was also a lot of talk as to why my blog had stayed silent on the 8-bit tribute to Miles Davis and Capcom's commitment to the iPhone, so I'm glad I can finally lay that controversy to rest

 I also want to show you this page from Brandon Graham (royalboiler) 's comic King City, coming soon from Image Comics. See if you can spot anyone you recognise! This is very cool.



Not only should you buy Brandon's books but I can thoroughly recommend his blog for inspirational posts about comics (though I'm sure you've added him already)

By the way, we're still having a lot of fun with the characters in the previous thing I posted, making awesome animated gifs and drawing them as real girls and whatnot, like we did with the drawings of cats from a while back.  You should mosey on over, because there's some seriously impressive stuff in there! I think I'm going to do a showcase of everyone's drawings at the end of the week, so if you're inspired to do some yourself, that'd be cool too. LATERZZZ

also, cameo=fantastic

That fellow clearly understands how to advertise.

I figure it's a sign for a PC Bang in an alternate universe where Oh Daphny is somehow as ubiquitously famous as Doraemon, despite having only 5 crappy comic strips to her name

She first appeared in a SNES-era platformer as a spunky mascot to compete with Sonic the Hedgehog

if you leave the game idle long enough her sprite picks its nose

I'm getting pretty good at getting other people to carry out my ideas for me
1st-Jul-2009 04:38 pm (UTC)
i might be one of those people v.soon!
1st-Jul-2009 12:46 am (UTC)
Woaah, so that's what that drawing was for.

Probably gonna have to get both the quote and the balrog one, they are awesome! :D
1st-Jul-2009 09:40 am (UTC)
The Quote one won't actually be going to market, but there's another one, depicting the Polar Star, that will

I guess I'll sell prints of Quote of here, perhaps?

1st-Jul-2009 09:39 am (UTC)
It's in the pipeline! Been snowed under lately. It is certainly near the top of my to-do list.

Let me know what you think!

Love the t-shirt designs! Reminds me of some Astro Boy shirts I've seen around.
Speaking of Cave Story, a friend linked me to this.</a> Ironic that in other articles he attacks professional games journalism really...

It's pretty well established in indie gaming circles that Alex Kierkgaarde is a grand master douchebag

cave story was the cutest game ever that just repeatedly broke my heart until nothing was left but a big therapy bill

maybe ill try drawing one of your girls as real girls but SINCE I GOT EXCLUDED FROM THE BIG WALLPAPER LAST TIME MAYBE ITS NOT WORTH THE EFFORT IM NOT ANGRY JUST LOUD and i got ignored a lot as a kid

1st-Jul-2009 03:55 pm (UTC)
That wallpaper was bunk, if I'd done it you totally woulda been in there
1st-Jul-2009 04:00 pm (UTC)

CAVE STORY! So awesome!

One thing has been seriously bothering me for a while about the coloured Balrog design, and I couldn't quite put my finger on it until now.

I'm not sure if this was intentional, but the colour of his foot is wrong, and it's driving me nuts.
9th-Jul-2009 05:26 pm (UTC)
Still a great shirt, mind you, and I'd buy it all the same.
12th-Jul-2009 04:02 pm (UTC)
That's just a quick sketch I knocked up for Daisuke Amaya to look at, it's in no way reflective of the final design

Actually, none of those four thumbnails are! They weren't really supposed to be published :O
12th-Jul-2009 09:56 pm (UTC)
Th-that's a "quick sketch"?

Holy shit.

Anyways, I'm glad to hear it'll be even better then it already is. Can't wait for the shirts.
12th-Jul-2009 10:18 pm (UTC)
the big black and white thing is finished artwork, the colour things are 'quick sketches'
