Frobisher Says

October 19, 2012

Awhile back I was commissioned to do some illustration work for a rather peculiar video game for the SONY Vita called Frobisher Says. The brainchild of Richard Hogg and indie developer Honeyslug, Frobisher Says involves playing through a fast-paced sequence of minigames at the command of the titular character. It’s hard to explain, so I suggest watching the appropriately bizarre commercial for the game here:


The first one involves running through Frobisher’s Mansion and finding friends from your Playstation network and leading them to Frobisher’s hot tub.


The second one is a slot machine game, with an unusual twist… I won’t spoil it for you!


The last one, my favorite, is called “Stir My Soups”, and involves rotating the thumb joysticks in the required (usually alternate) direction as Frobisher’s crazy eyes spin around and around.

The game was originally only available in Europe, but I just found out it will be available in the US as of October 23rd! And best of all, it’s free! So if you have a Vita, make sure to grab your free copy.

Sweet Relief – A Benefit for the Avelar Family

October 11, 2012

Another charity auction I currently have some work available in is “Sweet Relief”, a silent auction to raise money for the Avelar family’s medical bills for their daughter Monica. The auction will continue in person at the exhibition on October 20th, but until then you can bid online. Prints of mine available include Belmont Terrarium, Last Call, and the sold out (I kept a few copies for just such an occasion) Stapler.

8-Bit Brigade Fundraiser to Benefit Child’s Play

October 10, 2012

The nice folks over at 8-Bit Brigade are hosting their 7th Annual Fundraiser for Child’s Play. For those of you who don’t know about Child’s Play, you can read more about it here, but basically it’s an awesome organization that lets people donate video games and toys to hospitals to improve the otherwise generally unpleasant experience for the children there. You can even choose from a map which hospital to donate to and pick out various items to buy for the hospital. While I believe charity should be sacrifice, there is something extremely fun about picking out a video game system and some games and knowing how many sick kids are going to have their hospital stay exponentially improved because of it.

Anyway, back to the charity event… 8-Bit Brigade has collected a TON of donated items ranging from a collector’s edition of Skyrim to Zelda-themed jewelry to a large original painting by yours truly. The best part is, you can chip in as little as one dollar and be entered to win one of the hundreds of available prizes; for each dollar you donate you get one virtual raffle ticket. So what are you waiting for? Go donate!
