#159 More Backlog

So, a while ago I posted about an iPhone app I was working on.
Turns out it is probably not going to happen.

Soooo, I gif'ed what I had so people could see the graphics:

It seems to be having some trouble loading at a smaller size,
if it is doing weird stuff, make it full size and it should work fine.

Would have been a zombie whack a mole game,
rules would have been zombies are one point,
ghosts are two points, groundhogs are negative one,
and smacking the reaper ends your game.
Also, as you progressed levels, each one would have more
holes for them to come out of, with the final level having four or five.

Anyways, enjoy!

#158 Halloween Backlog

Hey all.
Got some Halloween stuff I never got to posting:
 Costume this year. It's a cardboard cut-out of my face.
What? I only had an hour to make a costume. Leave me alone.

 Abe Sapien Pumpkin this year.


Mine from last year, Hellboy, and my gf's Boogie Man from NMBC.

Yerp, oldies.

#157 Holiday Gift Exchange

'Tis the time for holiday cheer again!
This time last year I made an elephant drawing for this
art history gift exchange.

This year I made a tree topper for the librarian for the visual resources
library; she loves Harry Potter and LOTR.

So I made an Eye of Sauron Tree Topper:
in progress

in situ 

close up at home when i finished it. 

in situ, again.

I was surprised to find that no one had done this yet, 
according to a google image search.

Also, I thought about working the Foucaultian Panopticon in somehow,
but overlapping the North Star, the Eye of Sauron,
and Santa seemed enough cultural layering.

Hope y'all liked this.

Happy Holidays!

#156 The Opabinia

Animalia: Day 116
The Opabinia

End of Semester = New Post!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Did this while proctoring a final exam for Art and Context: The Cold War.

Not sure how much I like the coloring,
it has grown on me since yesterday.

Anyways, the opabinia was an awesome sea arthropod 
that lived during the Cambrian explosion.
Pretty awesome.
It didn't even look back at the explosion behind it.

They had five eyes and a prehensile Mario piranha plant mouth.

Anyways, check out the Burgess Shale, it is pretty great.
And it is the source of some of the other animals.
Though, not sure if nautiloids are anachronistic, since they're late Cambrian.

Anyways, spiky guy at bottom is the wiwaxia and the 
guys in the background are anomalocarises. 

Scale is way off, ignore it.

I would add a link to Nausicaa's flying bugs if I could find one.

Anyways, also, found some good burgess shale fan art:


Tomorrow(metaphorically): the Opossum.
