Today I am posting up my submission to this years art book and auction for the Calgary comic and entertainment expo.
I know it is a bit of overkill for an art book piece but I was inspired and had a lot of fun making this image. NES game art was very influential on me as a kid growing up playing these games and I used to study the art and judge a game based solely on the cover art. Sadly that did not always work out and I ended up buying Predator. One of the biggest let down wast of money piece of trash games that I ever laid my eyes on. But I digress.... ;)
Anyways, I came across some really neat faux box art images in my internet ramblings and I was inspired to do one for myself based off of the Konami model. When the theme for this years con was released, I found myself an excuse to finally make a NES box and "Adventures in Time" was born.
Below, I am posting some process images and the finished box layout. I have actually made the box and I'll save that for a later blog post.
