> And lastly , the tee i been wanting to get hold on. Finally got it after 2 years!

Why you might wonder?

This is one tee that had inspired me a lot, one tee that had given me hope & interest to create my works on ...yes...t-shirt. Everything begin with this TEE! This is the one tee that had ruled them all. This is not Spartan , this is Revelations by Jimiyo!

Mario Hype again

Hunting season

After 4 months , the force is still going strong..

The Mario illustration that i had created for Uberbooks's Designers Games Remix book have yet created another hype this few days after being posted in Digg and Geekologie. A estimation of85,836 views in FlickR alone.

I have received quite alot of mails since July and more this few days , on getting this print.

"Definitely , i will be selling its as a print" but as for now , i feel its not right if i start selling it before the book release.

If you are interested , you can keep a lookout on my blog or join my facebook group for updates and maybe a possible discussion.

Thanks :D

- And later, was requested to make some changes, still sticking with the propaganda ideas but a holy image, Gandhi . ^_^ ( below)

- Once approved, I added in more details and colored it in Photoshop. Also made some changes as requested. ^_^

Left top: Let's celebrate
Left bottom:
Happy birthday
Right top:

It was pretty fun creating this flyer. I was given a lot of freedom while working out this illustration for them and the guys at Feinheit are really a group of fun loving and generous peoples. I’m glad they loved it and had allowed me to post this today.

July30th


I am much surprised that this illustration i did was featured in renowned sites and blogs after my posting yesterday .The numbers of page views on my blog and FlickR was insanely high and a few Mario fans ( i presumed ) had emailed me wondering about the Trex in the illustration. That's will be Yoshi in case you want to know.
(You can also click on the illustration to my flickr link with explanation on the Japanese Kanji.)

Lastly , I like to thanks all this sites for their feature:
