Tales of Monkey Island


This is the cover I did for The Telltale Games Tales of Monkey Island pre-order slipcase. I stuck it in the pirate frame for your viewing pleasure. Telltale Games is selling a print of the image at their online store. I'm currently signing a stack for their inventory. I will follow up soon with some in-progress photos and notes.

At the risk of sounding like I'm sucking up, this is excellent. I also like the choice of frame for it!

David Cousens--
Thanks! Actually I tried on this frame digitally. It's the frame that my "LeChuck's Revenge" oil painting lives in. I just wanted to see how it might dress up this piece.

Haggis said...

Are you signing them with pencil, like the Sam and Max ones?

(Also, I said before that I didn't really have space to put it, but now I do, so consider this excellent print [almost] ordered!)

Charles Santoso said...

All the best and thanks for the inpirations!

Rad!! Fits well in the frame... do they also ship to Spain? I would LOVE to get a signed one!

It's awesome, definitely got a lechuck's revenge vibe to it, which, if i may say so, is one of your best paintings.

You should see if you can sell a print of the day of the tentacle painting somewhere, i'd love to have that one hanging on my wall too.

kudos for being a brilliant artist, steve.

Wow. I was sold on this with the previous post of just the monkey. This is all around awesome. I really dig the mottling in the sky with the intense blues.

Brings back the nostalgia all over again. I wish the in-game models looked half this good.

Silver Wolf said...

Thank you! :) I feel it as a personal gift to us, the Monkey Island fans.

Tobar said...

Looks great!

On an unrelated note, the Starwars.com blog recently did a little feature on an old concept of yours Defenders of Dynatron City. Looks interesting, you wouldn't happen to have any old concept art for that laying around would you? =) Here's the blog post: http://starwarsblog.starwars.com/index.php/2009/09/29/lucasfilm-artifact-defenders-of-dynatron-city/

A stunning beauty!

Oliver Kurth said...

Oh, and I like the colours and the very painterly look of the sky very much. Gives a neat Van-Gogh-touch to it. (I hope you're not going to cut off your ear or something ...)

Cheers, a Big Fan

The colorful frame really makes the piece pop! Cool.

Kelly said...

I just got my poster in the mail today! It's an absolute privilege to have it signed. I'm definitely going to look into a nice, pirate-esque frame to mount the poster in.

Thanks so much, Steve! It really made my day.ni
