my POINT n' CLICK adventure game!

I always wanted to make a video game. When I first started working in flash I thought this was the answer, but I always had trouble getting into action scripting. I don't know what it is I just have had problems staying interested. I tried many times with C and other various languages but I got so sick of typing “hello world” I thought I was gonna go crazy. (anyone who has read book on scripting knows what I'm talking about) A little less than a month ago I heard of a program called “adventure game studio”

I love it. The thing I really like is that it is more gratifying than just scripting something from scratch because you are working with an engine with some pre defined functions that are common in lots of games. You have to check it out, I couldn't explain if I tried. I am still having some minor issues with scripting my “if” statements but I am still interested and better yet determined to finish this game. The forums are real good for questions with a good search function. My absolute favorite is that the engine is for old sierra and lucasarts games, these point and click adventures. I loved these as a kid and played them for hours. Sam and max, search for the king etc.... this is just another outlet for me to proclaim that 2d is not dead and we will never let it die. I recommend you check it out. If there are any artists out there that are interested in making a game in the future with a focus on awesome 2d art with a 40's-50's cartoon feel let me know. I am really just doing this as a project to realize the scope and work involved in making a game. But I have a feeling that if some of us 2d cartoon lovers put our skulls together we could come up with a real nice game that says 2d still gots it!

I actually based the entire game off this picture I made. I thought she was cute and simple
one of my main artistic focuses was the backgrounds. I wanted that old school cartoon chalky, painted look. I will say old yogi bear was my greatest infulance.
I liked the reflection on the water

this was my first dialog test.
I couldn't post this without giving props to alien hominid a game where 2d prevailed in a world of 3d graphics. this game was a real inspiration and hilarious to play.

I would apreciate all comments and suggestions for game. so don't hesitate to let me know what ya' think.

night time doodles

drawing puppets sure isn't as fun as making them

just a doodle

I love puppets

I have to say I really love puppets. when I was a kid I marveled over how amazing these foam creatures where. I was really a big fan of anything jim henson did. I have not made a puppet in some time but I was rummaging through some old art trying to get my hard drive in order and I found some pics of puppets I did. so I thought i'd post em'.

my friend Jen Blando took this in high school I made the above on a snow day from school
this is a classic sock puppet that I made with film canister cap eyes
this one is made from the film canisters. and I rigged a zip tie to open the duct tape hinge. this guy was my favorite I used to take him in my pocket.
this one isn't a puppet. but it is a plush I sewed for my buddy David beyer jr. from his comic the twisted adventures of stinko. it was fun to make. his name is red bean. check him out on myspace(

well if I find more puppets I did I will post em'.

some stuff I been working on

here is some stuff I been working on since I been in florida. when I look at it all I think is EMO, don't ask me why.

just like the first day of school.

well here I am that awkward new kid. As much freakin' time as I spend on the internet I decided I should get a blog. Really for no other reason than to be one of those nerdy 25 year old men commenting on cartoon blogs and maybe meeting some other people that dig on cartoons. I love to draw, and really want to make cartoons. I learn most all I know off blog sites so I thought what the heck.
