I started creating video game art on a whim. I felt that I had been taking my subject matter too seriously. By painting something I considered fun, and something that had already been pre designed, I could just let myself play. It’s been almost three years since my first geek culture inspired piece. Now, prints of these watercolors are my best selling creations. If you’re interested in picking up a few prints of your own, visit my Etsy shop. I’m offering free shipping until Decmeber 17th, 2012. Just use coupon code FREESHIP at check out.
Here are a few of my most recent nerd excursions. The Cammy piece won the Etsy Gamers Game of the Month Challenge for November 2012.
I’m including this last photo to illustrate how small these video game inspired works are as originals. The prints are 5″ x 7″.

The Etsy Gamers’ game of the month this May is Bioshock. They seem to be on a first person shooter kick, which is OK by me. The following ACEO is of a Little Sister and Big Daddy. It is hard not to think of the under water city Rapture as a horrific steam punk version of Oz. I had fun playing with the art deco arches of the game. This Big Daddy’s name is Toto.

I am a part of the Etsy Gamers Team. We are a group of people who enjoy Etsy and gaming. Every month we each create an item inspired by one of our favorite video games. The game of the month is chosen by the winner of last month’s challenge. You may remember the ACEO I painted for January’s game, The Path.
February’s game was Left 4 Dead, a personal favorite of mine. This witch was my submission.
March’s game of the month is Katamari Damacy. Below is my illustration of the Katamari Prince dancing his little heart out.
