One of my favourite games in Fallout: New Vegas by Bethesda. The Tops casino is central to the storyline of the game.
The Rad Pack at the Tops Casino is believe is based on the Rat Pack: Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Joey Bishop and Buddy Greco.
I really do enjoy their type of music, so much so that I was listening to them whilst creating the moodboard. I retained the 60s theme as well as the Fallout game series too. The motto of the Tops Casino is “You’ll dig us baby, we’re the tops!” Any feedback or constructive critiscism is welcome.

Hello everyone.

If you are like me and trying to be fit and healthy in this day and age, then you will know that one of the hardest things to do is workout your legs. Every time I do a leg workout I wince at the pain of using the pedals in my car on the drive home from the gym. Suddenly every event that you do for the rest of the day has the loaded question “Do I have to use my legs for this?” Chances are if the answers yes, you won’t be doing that thing in case your legs give way underneath you and you strive for the next three hours to get back up.

This (exaggeration) situation had me thinking the only way to get around the home or office is by doing a zombie shamble ( making moaning noises and saying ‘brains’ only adds to the creativity ). So sitting in my favourite Prof. Charles Xavier chair I looked at all the different types of zombie movie posters that were on the internet and decided to generate one of my own. The zombie silhouettes were created by my own images of various zombie poses. Completed in Photoshop, to the style of George A. Romero and Zack Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead. Enjoy!

The universe is in great peril!

This is my second submission of video game posters.

“Long live the great and glorious mother brain!’

I only used tutorials to get the texture for this one which I’m proud of.

the poster is done in the style of a Chinese propaganda poster. The sunburst is certainly eye catching and its simplicity in only using two colours, and black and white. I used Adobe Illustrator to create the black and white mother brain and metroids, also the red sunburst. I placed them all in Adobe Photoshop and applied the textures and filters. The only thing I could criticise is the border chops off the metroids teeth at the bottom, adding a red or white circle to the mother brains eye would tie it in nicely with the metroids white eyes. Feedback welcome. Enjoy!


Weekend creative thinking

This morning I had a weird thought (what I consider weird might be insane to others) that the word infinity has the word tea in it (is that a homonym? I dunno). Anyway, It got me thinking about other words that end in -ty and how i could incorporate them with the tea cup (yes it does get weirder). I already gave you the first one (infinity), can you guess the others? Feedback welcome. Enjoy!
