Big Cats at the Zoo

Sleeping Cougar
Lioness
Went to the Como Zoo for a Light Grey Art Lab drawing excursion today. We met up with some artists to sketch. I spent a lot of the time looking at the big cats, and I'm always amazed at how similar they are to small cats. I just wish I could jump in and cuddle them. But then I would die.

Eight Down

Eight Down
I made this piece for Light Grey Art Lab's newest show, Animystics, which opens tomorrow! It's a huge show, with over 100 artists, and a part of every sale gets donated to one of three different animal charities; the Animal Humane Society, Homeward Bound Dog Rescue, or Feline Rescue, Inc. Awesome!

Here's some pertinent stats about this guy:
  • Animal Type: Feline
  • Physical Attributes: Although not the most fearsome warrior, this house cat came armed with a warrior's spirit and a hearty supply of lives.
  • Mystical Attributes: Blind determination.
  • Healing Properties: He can’t heal, but nine lives can get you pretty far.
You can find my piece along side all the other awesome art in the Light Grey Art Lab Shop, so go buy some art and help out those pets in need!

Dream Arcade Call for Art!

Dream Arcade
Over at Light Grey Art Lab we're doing an amazing new show called Dream Arcade! It's a fully playable game, with 30 artists creating the characters, enemies, and level assets for 30 unique, artist-specific levels!

I've been working really hard with the help of Microsoft's David Washington* to create a game engine that we'll be using to create the final game! Check out the playable sample level and sign up to be in the show over at the Light Grey Art Lab blog!

Hope you can join us, it's going to be awesome!

*To be fair, David has been doing the hard work of programming it. I've been figuring out how the art will be integrated...
