Rainbow of Ponies – 7 pin collector set, 1” each. Will be available at APE next weekend!
So the Alternative Press Expo or APE, is a fun little comics, art, and book convention held right here in downtown San Francisco. This year, I’m helping run the Academy of Art University’s Children’s Book Club’s table in the Exhibitor Hall, so I’ll get to sell some of my own stuff. I’ve recently invested in a button maker, and have been cranking out several designs to sell alongside my prints at the con! The AAU CBC will be table #134, so if you’re going to APE, please feel free to stop by! Here are a few of my designs so far that will be featured at the convention:
>>This is a OOAK pin done to test out my button maker. It’s a mini-corg.
>>That one pin then immediately turned into a bunch of pins!
>>And don’t forget Ponythulu! She wants in on the action, too!
>>I’ll also have several other fanart-based pins, such as this silly pony– Applejack!
Recently I did a digital painting for Signal Fire Studios for their newest game Building an Elder God. This painting was used on a t-shirt to promote the game during its Kickstarter Campaign. That same t-shirt is now officially on sale for the public at Signal Fire’s new Geeky Wearables store, Shirt Happens. If you like the design, you can buy it by clicking this link: Ponythulu Shirts at Shirt Happens. Your purchase supports me and my ability to buy groceries!
>>Here’s the design– my painting married with graphic artist and game co-creator Ben Mund’s design.
Exciting news! As most of you know, I work for a company called SignalFire Studios which is a start-up tabletop gaming company that publishes role playing and card games. Awhile back I did some card art for them for an upcoming game, and after several delays, it has finally been released! Here’s an excerpt from SignalFire Studios‘s website about it:
Pantheon is a card game for 2-5 players created by veteran game designer Timothy Brown (co-creator of the Dark Sun campaign setting), developed by Jamie Chambers with graphic design by Digger Hayes, featuring art by Lindsay Archer, Michael Bielaczyc, and Joie Brown.
In Pantheon you start with a fledgling ancient culture. Grow your population, build temples, advance your civilization, and wage war on your enemies! There are many paths to victory, but when the game ends only the strongest pantheon will triumph. It features gods from ancient Greek, Norse, Egyptian, Chinese, and Indian mythology.
How exciting, right? My art is up there with the fabulous, famous, and talented Lindsay Archer! All of the artists that worked on this game are amazingly talented, and it was an honor getting to work alongside them, even though my part was trivial in comparison.
The best part is that you can buy your own copy for only $5! Right now the game has been released as a Print & Play Edition, meaning you buy the digital files and print the deck in your home, or at your local Staples. It’s a really fun way to try out a great new game (that features my art) without having to break the bank! For those of you who would prefer to buy a physically printed deck, stay tuned… they will be available soon!
