Now I get to write some stuff about myself.
I was honored to be a part of the “Art Team” for the National Videogame Museum.
I’ve always been a gamer and I come from a family of artists, so this project just kinda fit what I was looking for.
My father in law actually came over to my house one morning with a newspaper clipping for the ad that the NVM had posted. They were looking for mural artists to do some work on the museum.
I showed up for both open calls.
I made it my goal to get in on this project.
I sent email after email to Joe, Sean and John with ideas and concept sketches.
They finally contacted me back about doing the 80’s logo wall.
I guess it had been a dream of John’s to have a wall that highlighted all of the companies that birthed the gaming industry.
To be honest, I was a little scared of the project. Most of the art that I had done was completely unlike anything that they were asking for. At the same time, I knew that this was my chance to get in.
I spent almost a month working on that wall.
Every logo was unique and had to look legit.
I think I repainted the Atari logo at least 7 times until I was happy with it.
Looking back I am so happy and grateful for the opportunity to work on this.
I am very proud of myself for completing that wall. There were quite a few times that I was standing on a ladder cursing at letters.
Once it was done, more work was commissioned by the museum.
