well it feels like being ten again

I have my copy of Pokemon Soul Silver! and of course I had to make an illustration to commemorate the occasion:

drawing myself as a ten year old is a lot of fun. :)

I've got really really fond memories of the gold-silver/Johto generation of pokemon and being excited as all getout about it coming out when I was a kid, so it makes me really happy that I'll be able to play these games all spiffed up on my DS. and with some really cool extra features no less!

of course who could forget the originals? charmander remains my favourite starter pokemon of all time ever. :D

my friend Gio thinks I'm a fool for being of this opinion, so I drew us as Red and Blue for laughs. I'm probably going to draw a better version and colour it. I'm not a huge fan of the way the people look in the games/show but it felt weird to draw them too differently. I also got a cheap old copy of Pokemon Colosseum for the gamecube (which I'd never played) that I've been playing on my wii, so I'm probably going to be drawing more pokemon stuff!

seems to be a thing with me that I make a post on the last day of every month! I've been so busy helping out my friends among SVA's current crop of seniors with their thesis films, and between that and working I haven't had much time for art of my own sadly. but now they're done and the Dusty screenings are coming up next week! if you got an evening to kill on Tuesday the 4th, go catch the show. :) it's at the SVA theater on west 21st street, at 7 PM.

I know I say this a lot, but my blog shall be getting more love. :D
