Inspirations and Friends
Alright, awesome time. All of these people are ones I look up do or are great friends to me. Go see them, they are all made of pure awesomeness.
However, the single most influential non-being is the game "Okami" by Capcom/Clover. I have spent numerous hours playing this game, beaten it hundreds of times, and I have the memory cards to prove it. XD I always loved the style of the art, and I've even purchased the OST, Art book, and its sequel "Okamiden". I'm always looking for new inspirations, but "Okami" is one I am always returning to!
May the fresh scent of flowers protect you always!

What Is Design Unscripted?
Over 25 artists from Ringling College of Art and Design (students and alumni) have collaborated their imagination and talent in order to bring you a 100 page, single edition of Design Unscripted! The book’s aim is to help launch the careers of aspiring Visual Development Artists by showcasing their work alongside Ringling alumni who have become seasoned professionals. This art-book will give you access into the creative process and contains original ideas for many never before seen character and prop designs as well as environments, vehicles, storyboards and color-scripts from these emerging artists! There will only be one print run of this book…this is a rare opportunity to not only invest in the careers of these up-and-coming artists, but also to get a limited edition copy of this book.
