Hello, Goodbye.

My beautiful, highly intelligent, and hard working wife got a great new job in Northern California which means we’re saying goodbye to our favorite City of Chicago at the end of February. We will miss this beautiful city, but we are excited for new adventures! ✌🏻☀️😎

Plans for 2018

Hello Everyone!

We're in the beginning stages of 2018 and everything seems alright so far. 

I have some plans for 2018 and here they are:

// Just do me on Social Media. I feel like in 2017, I made a lot of art to stay current or to gain followers on Instagram. I was planning projects daily to post on Social Media instead of taking my time and really letting a project grow.  

// Remember that digital art is fine art. I love digital art. When I found Illustrator something just clicked inside my head. My art has evolved so much using the digital medium, but sometimes I get down on myself for using a "fleeting" medium. So, in 2018 I need to remind myself that digital art is fine art.   

// Have fun. All major projects in 2018 will be based around what I want to do. Paintings, digital, screen prints, etc. I want to start having fun with art again.

// Eat better, lose weight, feel good. This one is pretty self explanatory. I need to focus on my health also. Yoga, diet, and meditation. Remember that mental health is connected to physical health.    

Hopefully I will complete these so called "Resolutions". I need to see some positive change in myself and my art. 

Heres to 2018.  

 

 

Game Suggestions: Miracle Merchant

Miracle Merchant is a solitaire style potion brewing card game.

You are an apprentice of a master alchemist who creates potions for thirsty adventurers.

Each game has a unique, randomly generated set of cards that will test your skills. 

With two previous releases (Card Crawl and Card Thief) Tinytouchtales are THE masters of digital card games in my opinion.  

The game also has great art by Thomas Wellman. Simple and colorful style w/ great original character designs. 

Overall, Miracle Merchant plays like a dream and is overflowing with character.     

Miracle Merchant is a must buy on the App Store / Google Play

Game Suggestions: Pigeon Wings

Pigeon Wings is a super fast side scroller in the vein of Canabalt or Alone 

You are a pigeon trying to stop a mysterious aeronautics titan bent on destroying East Megalopolis. 

The game has 50 unreal hard levels that will test your tiny pigeon wing racing skills.  

Simple and on-point tilting motion controls, great simple geometric styled art, great music, boss fights, and a fun side story.
