Getting into the spirit of self-portraiture, I wound up drawing the eye-witness composite on my Have-You-Seen-This-Man mailer-insert ad.
AKA continuing the ego from last week.
At the grocery store this week, I saw a magazine called Science Illustrated. The word was too actu-present to ignore. And then, upon flipping through, I found so many phrases I wanted to illustrate, I knew it was meant to be.
These two pages make me nostalgic for MR CIM (my old web comic). I still can’t do much more than doodle.
And a bonus: there are several unlabeled puns on the first page. Of course.
TITLE: OPEN HOUSE
My favorite board game in the entire world is Betrayal At House On The Hill, but it is out-of-print. Recently one of my friends from college bought it for me for CMas. The game is played by exploring a creepy mansion and finding one room at a time, complete with Omens, Events and Items, waiting for someone to set off the Haunt and cause the Traitor to reveal his/herself, at which point you find out what the second half of the game is by consulting the book of scenarios and using the Omen/Room chart. Will zombies come after your brains? Will a madman shrink you to Barbie size? Will the music of the night lull you into becoming a Cthulhoid nightmare? I. Love. This. Game.
I built out the entire house —staying true to a game being played to this point— and took pictures from behind each of the characters. I’ll post an overhead shot of the entire building.
