EVERGLADES WATER CONSERVATION GAME

Bread Web Services hired me to do character design and other illustrations for a game to be placed in a museum exhibit.

The top screen is on an upright monitor, and the bottom gameplay screen is on a touch table.

I designed Ebenezer Alligator and created several arm and mouth positions for the animator to use.

STUDIO CYPHER


Studio Cypher contracted me to spearhead the art direction of Tiger Trackers, a Facebook game created as a fundraiser for the new Siberian tiger exhibit at the Indianapolis Zoo. I developed concepts and hired/managed a small team of artists.

GAME SHOW NETWORK

Currently I am contracted by GSN Digital to work on art for games for their websites, including GSN.com and WorldWinner.com. The games include both licensed titles (Bejeweled, Zuma, Wheel of Fortune) and originals.

I was given the task of updating older games and I completely revamped Golf Solitaire and Free Cell from the ground up. Below are links to videos of the looping intro animations and before/after comparisons. I invented characters to breathe life into the outdated games and designed more exciting, modern interfaces, completely changing the look and feel.

I also created many new icon sets for Swap-It! themes.

SIX RED MARBLES

For most of 2010 I worked for Six Red Marbles, an educational media solutions agency operating out of Charlestown, Massachusetts. In that time we developed three educational computer games: Cabanga, Juba and Waza. I worked on all of them, but most of my time was dedicated to Cabanga as lead illustrator.

I designed 60 diverse characters to populate the game’s environment along with animated head shots, avatars and other illustrated assets.
I developed concepts for the story
behind award-winning Juba.

Waza, a math game for the youngest of learners, required dozens of connect the dot activities.

ANIMATION

Here are some relevant odds and ends.


I designed an adorable robot for a project that eventually fell through. So he didn’t go to waste,
I had him do a little dance.

Filmmaker Chelsea Spear needed an animated segment for her short “Jumbo in a Jar” that received a decent amount of local media coverage.
