Above is my Totem Big Boo painting for Giant Robot’s Game Over show. This is a video game-themed show that is coinciding with Electronic Entertainment Expo, or better known at E3. I opted against painting a toy for this and instead went with a traditional painting on a wood panel. I enjoy 2D work a lot but toys take up the majority of my time, so I figured this would be a nice change of pace. While these shows are usually dominated by Nintendo-based art, I didn’t want to get too obscure with my piece but still didn’t want it to be Zelda or Mario. So I went with one of my favorite Marioworld characters, Big Boo. He also has the perfect look to integrate my Totem patterns into him, so I think it worked out well.
The show opens this Saturday, June 7th at GR2 and will be up until the 18th. So if you’re visiting the area for E3 or just a big video game fan, this is definitely something you should check out.
