Game Dev Update

Been doing animation for the past 4 months. Need to start getting a lot of this into the game! Most of the art assets are in the pipeline; can’t wait until they’re implemented together :D

See more updates here on instagram!

Run Animation

Practicing run animations. Doing traditional animation is fun, but damn it takes a long time.

“You call these tacos?”

Instead of starting today by smashing a troublesome bug in my code, I decided to draw a picture of my roommate, Jerison :)

Ladder!

It’s taken my way too long to get this ladder working. One coroutine for when you’re in the area of the ladder, and another for actually climbing. that upper function is kicked off in a separate ladder script when you enter it’s area. Then another game object at the top of the ladder for dealing with stuff when you’re at the top…like getting back down.

Feels more messy than I’d like, but just don’t have enough experience to be clever yet.

Print for Cock & Swan’s Decibel Festival Show!

I was lucky enough to get asked to do a print for this years (2014) decibel festival and out of all the bands I couldn’t picked to do, I had to support my pals in Cock & Swan!

She’s a one color print using this amazing watermelon red that took way too long figure out the recipe on a deep deep super deep blue stock from the one and only French Paper :)

This was the first print where I tested out how our setup could handle the ‘dither’ shading rather than the usual halftone. It came out amazing! I’m impressed that we’re able to achieve this detail in our studio and I can’t wait to get our new space all painted and nice so we can get back to printing.

That’s right! I’ve started streaming! Mostly streaming with my girl, Selena a.k.a Zombie_Gurrl. And if you’re going to start something new then that’s the perfect time for a new branding project :) Now you know how I love to sink my teeth into some new branding and here’s a ‘chipsler’ logo I’m working on for the channel. If you know me, you know how I like my logo’s rotationally symmetric and strong as hell.

Selena’s making a logo for her Zombie_Gurrl channel too and it’s going to be awesome! I can’t wait until she puts the finishing touches on it.

Found Pics

So I’m updating my portfolio and while combing through folders, I found this collection of pics from old instagram accounts (@bossnotboss & @chipsler). Now that I’m instaslamming under @christopherlmartin I don’t see these pics so much anymore—it’s all about the little treasures.

Pixel Food

After seeing Selena’s amazing pixel doughnut I was inspired to see what sort of pixel junk food I could cook up :) So I’d like to introduce Pixel Pizza and Pixel Float. yum!

Sasquatch! 2013 Screen Print For Brothers From Another by ME

I’ve spent the past couple weeks going straight to the studio after work to get working on these prints. This is a ~18×24″, 4 color screen print (4th color is a varnish on the blue). Hand-printed and illustrated by ME! And I didn’t use no stinkin’ computers either.

For the burn, I painted right on the transparency with several coats of black ink to make sure it was the blackest of all blacks. The weirdest part is that when kids would want to see the design of what I was working on, I couldn’t show them since it wouldn’t actually exist until I printed it (typically there’d be a digital mock up that would later be color-separated and sent to a third-party printer). So I just had to trust what I saw in my head and my little pencil sketches.

Def be sure to check tracks from Brothers From Another! These kids are serving some solid hip hop and you’d be a fool not to get seconds.

Regulate Saturdays

Woke up and had to lay down some solid Warren G to kick off my Saturday before getting back to sketching for my Sasquatch! print :)

Drew some frames at the studio while I was waiting for a screen to dry. Then made them into a GIF for you :)

‘Damn Fine’ Postcard Print

Yesterday I printed my ‘damn fine’ postcards at the studio! Two amazing things are going on with this print: 1) I actually gave a shit about registration and it mostly turned out awesome! 2) I didn’t use a computer for any steps. I drew with sharpie on transparency for the color separations then… you know…. screen printed.

Now who to send ‘em to…..
