Inktober 10: Jump

Inktober 2016 10

Official Inktober prompt #10: Jump

I skipped day 10 for day 11, so to make up for it I made a little rough animation! Very rough. Maybe in November I’ll focus on doing animations as much as possible.

Chickenfox Derby update: First Print!

I ordered a test print of the Chickenfox Derby game, just in time to take it to Geek Girl Con! It arrived the other day and I am really pleased to share it with you now:

Up until now, the Chickenfox game has been a bunch of hand-drawn cards tucked into card sleeves with old bicycle playing cards as support behind them.

Now, the game is one step closer to being real!

I wanted to have a playable set to take to conventions and playtesting nights, and have a reproducible set to reduce the risk of losing any of the original cards. I had to rush to get it printed in time, so this prototype has the original art, enhanced with fresh layout linework and text using a font made from my handwriting. The game also fits in a much smaller box when printed, which is very helpful!

There are a lot of things to tweak; a lot of text, rules, designs, and artwork to finalize, but it’s so satisfying to see the game progressing past a dream and into reality.

If you’re going to Geek Girl Con this weekend (October 8-9 in Seattle) please find me in the Gaming basement and give it a try! I’ll try to tweet my location on Twitter to make it easier to find me.

Inktober 3: Collect

Inktober 2016 3

Official Inktober prompt #3: Collect.

Wild Chickenfoxes being collected for relocation. They’ll be tagged and released.

This Inktober was inspired by Doug Argue’s chicken factory painting that used to be at the Weisman Art Museum (I can’t believe such a massive piece is Untitled!)

I got sad when I was drawing it (especially the chicken wire) so I decided they’re being relocated, which is still sad but more hopeful than the alternatives. Stay tuned for more of their adventure, we may not see the last of them!
