Fangamer ♥ Attack Mode at PAX Prime in Seattle

This Saturday is the one night extravaganza Fangamer ♥ Attract Mode show in Seattle, WA. I participated last year (theme was "x" and I did a Animal Crossing print), and this year the theme is love. So I decided to do a piece based on my current video game love - Minecraft. Minecraft has been around for quite a while, and it was only when my guy put the game on my computer that I found out just how wonderful the game is. I can build to my hearts desire, I can dig for those lovely ore blocks and explore underground mines, create portals to other dimensions. It's wonderful and I can't say enough kind words about the game.

(Available online in late November via Fangamer)

So I created a piece based on the various aspects of the game The End, The Nether, Overworld, and some of my favorite biomes and creatures in the game. When I set out to do a painting of this, I told myself that I wasn't going to do a piece with all the "blocks", but sure enough that's what I ended up doing. The square blocks are so iconic and part of the game, I felt like I needed to do it that way.

There are a lot of events going on this Saturday.  Games, music, live performers, food, drink, prints. If you want to see the complete lineup visit their website for tickets (It was very busy last year, and a packed house) and information:
