Maniac Mansion and Drawing Day

Emulator is over, so I thought I’d post the illustration I had hung in the Bleeding Hearts gallery

If you are so inclined you can buy prints at society6 : http://society6.com/amassingham/Maniac-Mansion-Cocktail-Party_Print

In other news, I recently found out that my Animal Rankings cuttlefish illustration will be featured in the drawing day 2011 book.  So feel free to buy a copy for all of it’s cuttlfishy glory.











Emulator Art and Kondoot Games

Sorry for the lack of posts lately.  I’ve had a pretty full plate.

Recently I started working for Kondoot – A Brisbane-based social video organisation.  And it’s been pretty awesome.  After a few weeks hard work, we’ve released the first batch of games made specifically for the site.  We have released three games so far.  Brainpunch! – A braintwistery colour game, Conducted – A Matching electrically game, and Earth Must Pay – A Space-travelling frustration fueled game.  You should all head on over, create a Kondoot account and give them a try.  ( while you’re at it, feel free to add me and try to beat my scores! )

In other news, I’ve got some art being displayed at Emulator from September 19th to 30th at Bleeding Heart gallery.  It’s a classic gaming inspired event.  I’ve submitted art based around Maniac Mansion.

I actually drew two pieces, but was only allowed to submit one, and so I present to you my alternate illustration (to get you all in the mood) : “Bubble Bobble Cocktail Party”

I’ll be at Emulator on Friday the 23rd for Opening Night.  Come along and say hi! And don’t forget to check out the Kondoot Games!

Longest Illustration and Space Party

Recently I took part in the ‘Longest Illustration’ Project over at redbubble ( http://www.damienmason.com/files/Longest/index.html ).  Essentially it’s a continued drawing.  Someone starts, then the next person takes the last 150 pixels of the previous image, and uses that as the start of their drawing.  This continues for ever! ( or until people stop posting – theoretically ).

This got me thinking, wouldn’t it be great that instead of the image only moving left to right, it could move up and down ? Or even diagonally ? Unfortunately it would be super confusing for each artist to figure out what they should use as their template, and where they should be drawing.  Then I figured, hey, I’m a programmer, I could write something to manage that!

And so I have!


I’ve started it off with a new illustration which I call “Space Party”.  Hopefully people will be able to figure out something great to go around it.




If you’re an artist, or artistic, or think you can contribute in some way shape or form to this growing project, then by all means – head on over and check it out! I’ll be updating the software and fixing bugs as we go – but fingers crossed I’ve squashed most, if not all of them!
