The new Portishead album is pretty good, it's not Earth shattering but I am enjoying it.

Here is more Battle of the Bands artwork including early versions of Faust the vampire for the Goth band "Silence Asylum"

More Battle of the Bands Concepts!

So everyone out there is enjoying their copy of Battle of the Bands right? :)

Well the game has been getting some pretty decent reviews. Average review is about 70% which I can live with. It is a casual party game and not that deep, so I can understand why the hardcore gaming press isn't that crazy about it... plus with Grand Theft Auto IV (Meh) coming out on Tuesday I'm sure excitment (amongst the hardcore) is directed elsewhere...

Anyway... here is more artwork from the Battle of the Bands development...

Battle of the Bands!!!

So Battle of the Bands is in stores today! As many of you know I am insanly proud of this title. The work the team put into it is nothing short of amazing.

So far we seem to be receaving pretty positive reviews. We're averaging a 70%. I can accept that. It is above average.

So I got permission to post up my concepts and artwork from the project! As there are tons I will be slowly showing them as the week goes on. So here is the the first batch which includes the very first sketches done on the project.

The game has a pretty cool website as well!

We also have TV commercials! They are being shown on MTV, MTV2, VH1 and USA, at night in programs like Real World, Flavor of Love etc

This is the first time I've ever worked on a project that has actual TV marketing...which in the video game world is HUGE.

The TV spots are really funny and well done.

If you see it let me know!

Pistolas Gigantes!!!

So THQ (Publisher of Battle of the Bands) held a press event yesterday and there is a bunch of new videos and screen shots coming out for the game.

This one features Pistolas Gigantes! The Outlaw Mariachi band that I modeled and textured. I also came up with the midget luchador character and the huge sombraro character.
