Please be MINEcraft

Just in time for Valentine’s day.  If you have a special someone who geeks out over Minecraft as much as you do, i hope you throw a love potion at them, hop around for a bit, and then explode….with happiness of course.  You’re Welcome

I don’t usually enter competitions, but this one really spoke to me.  As most of you know, i love the game Minecraft.  When i saw that Threadless hopped on the wagon to put out designs for MineCon, my little heart went a flutter.  I did two designs for the contest.

The first is a comic book take on the main character Steve.  He has his Cat companion with him and for anyone that knows the game, they are a great defense against one of the more dangerous mobs in the game; Creepers.  You can VOTE FOR IT HERE. Its the last day and i hope to get a few more votes and comments in there :) And you can use facebook to sign up; its pretty easy


The second one i did is a Minecraft take on the Peanuts Characters.  More specifically , the front features Lucy ‘griefing’ Charlie Brown yet again.  For those who don’t know, Griefing is a term used to describe malicious acts toward other players in game, such as going around killing people or destroying the structures they build.  You can VOTE FOR IT HERE! Vote, Comment, Share, whatever you would like to do :) A few seconds of your time means the world to me!



Once again: Voting for the Comic Book Minecraft Design is HERE; and the Peanuts Design is HERE

I’ll probably post an update on the Peanuts design closer to the closing of the Voting to let you know how its doing.  The comic book design will be finishing up today and i’m hoping for a strong finish!  THANKS! and of course; You’re Welcome

Last week i found out (on Facebook of course) that the Yogscast has been running a teeshirt design contest for the past umpteen days/weeks or so (i’m not really sure).  The prize being offered is actually something my husband needs but can’t afford right now.  SO, i said to myself ‘why don’t i make something and try to win it for him!’ It’s always a long shot with stuff like this, and frankly i never do that well in contests(like the majority of us) and tee design isn’t in my little circle of ‘stuff i do all the time’.  But i had a week sort of open and decided to try.  If anything else, its makes some pretty cool fan art.

Here are the two i came up with it this week.

Spiders? WHY!?!

Bunch of Squares

when i was done, i realized they looked like toast

testing out some colors

I’m not letting myself have expectations on my chances, but i had fun playing on my computer and made something i’m happy with.  You’re Welcome

As some of you know, i’m a fairly big Minecraft fan.  In my infancy as such, i trolled the youtubes looking for videos of amazing builds, maps, mods, redstone creations, and anything else that sent my heart a twitter.  I came across the Yogscast and their Minecraft antics on the Survival map.  Needless to say, i was hooked.  Not to sound too creepy, but i probably will because that’s how these things usually go, but i started to watch all of their videos while i worked.  First the Minecraft videos, and then onto videos of games i’ve never played or even heard of.  Simon and Lewis, of course, are the ‘go to’ couple to listen to.  And though its a bit silly, i always anticipate an explosion or a random fire when Simon wanders off screen somewhere, and of course chuckle every time.   Just last week though, i was hooked to the “Condemned, Criminal Origins (crinimal oranges)” series that Simon and Hannah played together.  For a few days after, i found myself entering dark hallways saying “Hello? Is Any-body here?” and making sure there was always a conduit nearby just in case, but i always hoped for the fire axe.

If you haven’t watched them on Youtube, you should.  It’s ALWAYS good for a laugh if you love or appreciate video games in any way.

Of course, because of my small obsession as of late, they inspired me to do yet another Minecraft sketch, but this time, featuring Simon, Lewis, and special guest Hannah adventuring in Minecraftia.  Thank you Yogscast for the entertainment!  No one does it quite like you guys.

Yes, Jordan and i have been working hard to get stuff ready for Angry and Mad, and Yes, my hands, wrist, and back are feeling the long hours put in over my illustration desk, and Yes, i haven’t eaten in hours, BUT that hasn’t stopped me from jumping onto Minecraft, breeding some cats and pigs (respectively), killing dozens of mobs, befriending a wolf, and subsequently getting lost in a jungle because i got too caught up jumping around on the vines.  On a side note, that was a really long sentence.  Possibly a run on.  Okay, probably a run on. You’re Welcome

i can't tell how many times i've dug straight into a lava pool.

Somehow, i convinced my husband to let me get a tree to decorate for Christmas. And by Convince, i mean i went out and got a live tree, took it home, and decorated it ( don’t worry, i had his blessing). The tree is a gorgeous Norfolk pine that stands only about 3.5 feet tall and has the softest of needles.

On a side note, Home Depot, along with other home improvement stores, felt that this beautiful tree was not attractive enough by itself leading them to spray the entire pine tree in Spray Glitter…. Idiots. I’m sorry that nature isn’t breathtaking enough for you.

Okay…so maybe i’m a tad hypocritical for hanging lights on my tree and dangling silly ornaments from its limbs, but i’m fairly sure that neither of those things interfere with a plants ability to BREATHE.

An awkward segway later, I decided on a Minecraft theme for the tree of course then proceeded to go out and get me some diamond colored balls and printed Minecraft iconography to hang from my lovely pine.

I didn't even hear it coming...i turn and there it was....on my tree...

It's rare to find Gold this high up

Thanks to the internet and friendly discussions, my husband and i were talked into purchasing an amazing game called Minecraft. Minecraft is a 32 bit game world filled of crafting and mining fun while also including the peril of nightmarish nighttime creatures, horrifying pitfalls, and a butt load of spiders when least expected. The game has taken our lives for the past week, but not without its entertaining upsides. The first of those being that you can create worlds and homes that could only be imagined possible with legos except that most of the laws of physics don’t apply to you. The second great aspect of it is easily being able to create your own character. Jordan purchased an app that helps by separating the body parts for you, but you can also download a template and go from there. Of course, i HAD to make one or two, starting with myself of course because there is nothing better than staring at myself building and mining. The second most natural course was to create a Futurama character. If anyone would like these skins, i can post them for download, but for now, these are screen shots of the characters from my computer.

Of course i'm barefoot
