I got accepted to a video game themed art show with a deadline of a week or so. So I was short on time and needed to work really quickly.
I go through my list of favorite games and then go over a list of games I like that other people actually remember. My own taste in games tend to run towards the really old or really odd (Evil Genius, Thief the Metal Age, Viscera Clean Up Detail, Katamari Damacy etc.)
After a bit of kicking around I finally decide to try to do a piece based on my personal favorite time sink, Don’t Starve. Partially because I really like the style of the game, and partially because there’s a good chance that people might actually recognize that one.(My masterpiece based on a sci-fi mopping simulator will have to wait for another occasion. )
