Adventureland Art

A few weeks ago at work we created four games in Flash to promote the upcoming movie Adventureland. We worked through a pretty intense schedule to get everything done. It was the first time we pulled an all nighter there! 26 hours total! Geeze! I guess it evened out though because we took the next day off to catch up on some sleep and re-moisturize our shriveled, blood shot eyeballs.

Along with this project came a good amount of changes and adjustments. One idea was to create caricatures of the cast and use those for the games...So I did them, and then, the next day, it was nixed. I figure I might as well post a few so it's not all for nothing ;)

I also created this artwork for the whack-a-mole game. For the stains on the machine I spilled some coffee on a piece of countertop, let it dry, and scanned it in. The only problem was that it took hours to dry and by the time it did, the smell of coffee nearly made me sick :P

Sweet Home Made ipod Case

I made this case for my ipod out of a book I got at a thrift store for a few bucks, some craft glue, a couple beads, and a leather string. The book was written in Czech, which I can't read, so I didn't feel too bad about gutting it ;) Someone wrote a note on the first page which I was planning on posting to see if anyone might be able to translate. Unfortunately though, I lost it amongst the hundreds of pages I cut out. If it ever turns up, I'll post it.

Sad to say I can't take credit for this unconventional use of a book...I found it here at instructables.com. If you haven't been there, its a neat DIY site with a whole bunch of interesting stuff to make. The only thing I added was the beads and leather string to keep it shut.
