Spring Break!

Hello again, readers!  It appears I forgot to update my blog over winter break.  It's spring break now, and I have a few days free to madly update everything before I return to the art mines.

Of late, I've been part of a student team working on a carnival game called A Fistful of Duckies.  The brainchild of my friend Jenn Johnson, the game aims to teach about loan repayment in a friendly way.  Our team, Pocket Change Games, has been working on it since September of last year.  I had to take a hiatus to work at my internship last semester, but I rejoined the team in January.  A lot of art assets were needed to get the game from first playable to Beta, and I helped by designing environment layouts for the levels and drawing and painting a lot of things.  We'll be finished by the end of April, and with some finagling, A Fistful of Duckies could be in app stores by.. sometime!

I drew and painted the characters of TV Robot, Pug-With-Pants, and Cauldron Witch.  Jenn painted the environment and UI, and Jon Gardner did the ducks

Two of our members are attending GDC and bringing our beta with them.  Good luck, Anthony and Parker!

This is my last semester at DigiPen, and it's more than half-over.  Fun times!  Beyond graduating and the ongoing job search adventure, I have a few plans for the summer.  I will continue working on my comic book, and I will also help build an online RPG community, Thorns: Emergence.

That's it for now.  Have a good one!
