The background here is the shore of Burton Island on Lake Champlain. We were woken by a pretty terrifying storm, and after it passed I got up to pee and also took this picture.  Added Glorkian Warrior in because I thought it looked like the kind of alien landscapes I like to draw in the Glork series.
The Glorkian Warrior Delivers a Pizza is probably my best-reviewed book on Amazon.

Whew!! We just finished our Ratmaze Nightmare experiment for the Nitrome Jam 2014. The theme of the jam was “Dreams”. 
Great job by Jeffrey Nielson who coded it from scratch using GameMaker, and special thanks to Mark DeNardo for the excellent new track!
You can play Ratmaze Nightmare here: http://pixeljam.com/ratmazenightmare.html, and soon on the Nitrome site along with the rest of the Nitrome Jam 2014 entries.

And for a bit more video game relevance, here are a bunch of video game related ones I did as well. Many of these I already posted here

This is a strange one..

I (Rich) have been tumbl’ing years worth of my sticker-postcard art on stickerfun.tumblr.com, in case anyone wants to see ‘em. Pretty much all of them have been mailed and given away to family & friends.

This month I’m putting up all Christmas/Holiday themed ones, but there are plenty of others before that and will be again after. I’ve made hundreds of these things!

Awesome!! It’s The majestic Hexzelcoatlus! :)
