The Wolf Among Us

Before I start this isn’t a game review – I’m not a die hard gamer who wants to analyse this game – I thought it was cool so I wanted to share it with you guys.

The Wolf Among Us‘ is popping up everywhere, which is no surprise as it’s pretty awesome to play. A great storyline based on Bill Willingham’s comic book series ‘Fables’. The game does the beauty of comic book art justice with an almost rotoscoped/ Tarnation-esque look it’s mesmerising to watch and enchanting to play. The story sees you playing Bigby the Sherif (The big bad wolf from red riding hood in human form) who is in charge of keeping all the other fables characters from killing and making sure they maintain their human form. The game follows a series of murders for which you aka Bigby make all the important decisions in regards to solving them, all of which have massive consequences – the gaming experience is sure to be different for every player. Part 1 was epic so bring on parts 2-5!

Projeto Pop Culture Siqueira – PC Segundo Butcher Billy

When I heard about a collection of illustrated t-shirts and mugs based on the brazilian Youtube vloggerand MTV presenter (who happens to be such a character), I couldn’t wait to find out what they’ve done. Surprisingly the material wasn’t very interesting, so I decided to make my own version of it, with a series of illustrations that can have everything, or nothing, to do with the guy.

This series is based on MASPOXAVIDA a pop culture youtube vlogger.

Despite the great use of gif imaging which I have rarely seen in a creative project, the popular culture iconography and styling is really coherent with consumerism. Wether this project is making a positive or negative comment on popular culture and consumerism isn’t really the point, I suppose it could be read either way.
