Thinking about all the time that I lost (though always say that enjoyed time is not wasted time) playing video games throughout my life, I decided a few days ago, make a collection to pay tribute to some of my favorites.
Obviously not show them all but, hopefully, I’ll slowly complete this collection in the not too distant future.
It was totally unexpected for me. RB’s guys choose one of my jobs as piece of the week. First time that happens to me, I hope not the last.
Sailor’s delusion was made in 2011. At that time I had a little obsession: to have a winning design on Threadless, which, by the way, never happened. On the other hand my progress in digital illustration were pretty awkward. Trying to handle a second hand graphics tablet and did not quite get the trick. Each finished work was a small victory. Time has passed and I have often thought to rework this piece but for one reason or another I left the issue aside. Perhaps this is the sign I needed to do it.
It’s funny how some works you do and you almost forget (because you see it as a test or unfinished ideas, failed submissions or simply think is not your style) result in interesting stuff to show.
I considered it a bit anarchic and punk-ish style and was a little reluctant to put it in my gallery. I can be wrong but I think it is clear that you shouldn’t be the only one to decide if what you create may like or dislike.
