4X4 Adventures
23 December, 2012


Working on a new game with Digital Integration Ltd, sneak peek at two vehicles and a concept (unused) character design, the game is due out sometime early next year for the Android phone.




Last few Mighty Ape artwork for the rest of 2012, there's actually more but those aren't released yet.

2013 should be an interesting year as we expand Mighty Ape's art into other fields, plus more Mighty Ape Facebook game covers.


Non-Mighty Ape updates are also happening, including a teaser art for Space Chronicles project soon.

Mighty Ape Armageddon Poster
20 October, 2012



Halo 4 themed Auckland Armageddon 2012 poster for Mighty Ape. Microsoft was interested in getting our characters involved with the Halo 4 franchise (for the Auckland Armageddon Expo). I had to concept design the poster first for Microsoft (US) and 343 Studios to approve. Lucky they liked my first concept, it was signed off with no request changes.




XCOM: Enemy Unknown Mighty Ape Facebook cover. There's actually more MA art, but I won't be able to upload those yet until they've run their course over at Mightyape.co.nz :)



I had to take a break from drawing Mighty Ape characters and ended up doing quick sketches of the staff instead!

My concept pitch for Mighty Ape's April Fool gag on their website. Unfortunately it was cancel early this month due to unavailable resources to carry this through. The artwork was a parody of Lucasarts old popular adventure game, "The Secret of Monkey Island" box art. The gag was eventually an adventure game based on Mighty Ape characters called "The Secret of Mighty Ape Island", limited edition will receive a batch of free bananas. :P
