Say hello to Thumb Arcade, a new and exciting mobile games developer! This project required some rather fun illustration, branding and site design! The brief was simple, create a bright, exciting and somewhat bonkers new brand and site design for this fresh new mobile games development company. Just the kind of brief I love. And when they said they wanted all of it to be cartoon illustrated, my eyes lit up!
With a name like Thumb Arcade, it didn’t take all that long to visualise the character for this...a thumb...stood at an arcade, what more could you ask for? Needless to say the character came together really well and its one that both the guys at Thumb Arcade and myself are really pleased with! When we moved onto the site, it simply became an extension of the character, creating a fully illustrated site that the character could reside in. Great fun. Why not pop over to the site and see what they’re up to.
To celebrate the launch of Fully Illustrated V3.0 I wanted to create 3 individual pieces of digital art, focusing on the different stages of artistic creation. Yeah that's all a bit faffy isn't, I just wanted to make something pretty, here's image 2.
This shot was a tough one, I took roughly 40 shots from just about every angle I could find through a hotel window overlooking London. From here it was a case of trying to stitch the images together.
