Critters


Yet another set of characters for an un-produced animated feature project. Enjoyed trying to angular-ize my default rats, the ones that wind up in any on my comic projects though I still opted for my standard droopy nose. Was fairly pleased with the Guinea pig as well.

Awesome! I love your work and probably spend way too much time looking and re-looking through the archives of this blog.

Haha, these are great.I love the color more than anything for whatever reason.

I hate hamsters though. They always bite!

I hear you're doing an interview for samandmax.co.uk. Good to hear!

Starchy-

Lucas Arts announced today at the Game Developer's Conference the Secret of Monkey Island 2: Special Edition, and reunited Ron Gilbert and Tim Schaefer on stage.

Any new art you can preview? Did they ask you for another great cover? Is there ANY hope for us MI fans that Ron's CRAZY MI3 might ever see the light of day, and if it did is there any way you could be involved?

Inquiring minds want to know!

Unkiedev--
Nope. Never heard a thing about it until everybody else did. Glad it's being released again but not crazy about the repaint of the cover. Makes it look like a Lego game. Why not just do something new instead?

I love these guys.

They would have looked great in a Don Bluth film!

Speaking of MI, why has an MI comic project never been done? Man, that would be cool.

Overall I love your stuff. Rodents being of special interest I sometimes get extra picky. First view of this made it look like the tail was coming off the guinea pig, so I was very confused as to what you were trying to draw. But now that I know who the tail is attached to, it looks much better. I may need to draw some rats into my current project now...
