Hey friends, followers, and all ye other people. I'm hosting a contest/giveaway on my Tumblr every month throughout 2014. If you want in, head over to my Tumblr blog (archymedius.tumblr.com) for details. You know what, just click here. Free stuff for the win!
I got interviewed by On The Level Gaming, a Portland gaming website. Check it out: www.otlgaming.com/post/6460190…
If I personally had the means to print anything in high quality I would do it myself and sell everything for a dollar. Unfortunately, I do not have a money tree from which I can pay for all of the necessary equipment, so I'm stuck using RedBubble for now. So, if you're interested in getting some stuff to decorate the walls of your apartment or house, feel free to head over to my RedBubble page and pick up something.
If any of you have actually been paying attention to my recent sketches you might have noticed they focus on hands a lot. I've come to realize that this is probably because of how I see the human hand. As an individual, we see our hands and arms more than any other part of a body. Hell, we can't even see our own faces without assistance, but our hands are always there.

When we're kids we ask to "see" things, which means that we need to touch it and hold it.

For playing video games we use our hands as a method of interaction and feedback with the digital worlds we see with our eyes.

Look at most musical instruments. They require some use of your hands right? Drums, guitar, piano, trumpet, saxophone, and many others.

In creating things, from Lego structures to artwork, a lot of people use their hands to do the work while their brains and imaginations merely send the signals to the machinery.

You type using your fingers don't you?

I know I look at my hands every now and again, and think about all the things they have done. When people look at me, they don't look at my hands, they look at my face (or at least I expect them to), but my hands can tell stories better than my face can. Better than my words can.

Anyway, that's my little spiel about my recent work. I honestly don't think about this stuff as I'm creating it or even coming up with the idea. It usually hits me a day or two later. Expect to see more along those lines.
So, I want to give away one of my prints from The Legends. The details are not entirely set in stone yet but I figure the best way is to give away a RedBubble gift certificate worth the amount of a print or so (this way you don't have to send me your address or anything). Let's say $50, which is the price of 4 12" x 17" photographic prints, or 1 8" x 11.4" mounted print, or some other combination. The choice is yours.

Anyway, to earn a right to get this FREE gift certificate all you have to do is comment on this post (or tweet Archymedius) with your favorite Zelda game in the franchise.

The winner will be randomly chosen on Monday at noon (eastern). They'll then have a pick of whatever they desire for the amount of $50. Sound good?

And here…we…go.
