The last time I posted anything on this site was right before my second child was born. Coincidence? It feels like not much time has passed, and yet I’ve aged at least 30 years.
Here are some illustrations I made for a cover story on Polygon about the career of Ken Kutaragi. These were art directed by Matt Leone.
This was the first freelance job I’d taken on in a while (see aforementioned child) and was really challenging yet fun to put together. The controller grips were by far the hardest part of the whole thing. Getting just the right shape and angle, and then getting that to connect to the controller body was a lot of work, and re-work. I also had to make 18 portraits to represent all of the people interviewed for the article, and so I came up with the idea of making them look like early, 3D graphic, video game characters. I was really happy with the way they came out.
