Hilarious line art in the animated short about Mario and Pacman. I love the beatbox sounds as well. Enjoy!
I love Milo Manara‘s artwork, even though some might find it weird because he does comics in an erotic (and even pornographic) approach. I knew him from his collaborative work with Neil Gaiman, Endless Nights. Milo Manara had done the artwork for the story of Desire of the Endless in Endless Nights. And now he has represented a portion of the ancient human history (for people who are offended easily, please don’t look at the images below, for they are sexually explicit. You have been warned!). I found it very great and I wish I could have found a bigger resolution. You might recognize the images because most of them are taken from major artworks and represented in another way. I think the way of representing the human history like this looks like the Aurelian column, like I mentioned in my other blog.
According to the announcement of Yoshinori Kitase, the producer of Final Fantasy XIII (also the producer of other games in the series), the Square Enix team has worked with high definition for the first time.
Here are the package design, both for PlayStation 3 and Xbox.
I came across a site called Cover Browser while searching for album covers for my illustration class (the idea was to make my Jack and Jill project like it was a set of albums because one of my assistants thought my illustrations looked like an album he knew, but it didn’t really worked out), and I loved the site because it is quite an archive for books, comics, games and much more. So here are some of the covers of the Final Fantasy (which is developed by Square Enix, where my dream job is) games, and I guess if you’ve read my post about Yoshitaka Amano, you’d be able to understand his visual work and maybe a bit of his work from these covers.
I love drinking coffee a lot. Occasionally, I go to Starbucks with friends (because their couches & chairs are oh so comfy! – and there is free wireless, you can stay as long as it’s open, and they don’t warn you like most coffee shops in Turkey when you are playing magic). Their coffee, although a bit fatty, is good. And now they have their own ready brew called VIA! The ready brew product identity was designed by the Hornall Anderson team. I am definitely going to try this :)
