The Weaselopolis Juggernaut Tribune

A high school kid was looking through my sketchbook the other day, got to the last page of it, looked up at me and said, “man, there’s some pretty, uhm… creative stuff in there”, and I said, “yup, kinda scary isn’t it?”

I cannot sit and do art for eight solid hours, so I take occasional breaks during the day and play an online game called Ikariam. Ikariam is a Risk game on steroids. Based on ancient Greece, you build your own little civilization, pillage other peoples stuff, and work with others to keep from getting pillaged. I have met people from all over the world playing this game.

Over the course of this last year, Ikariam has inspired a lot of the artwork that I’ve posted on my blog. I’m in the process of taking that art and turning it into a daily paper for the folks I play the game with. I’m creating a mythology of my pretend city on…

The Weaselopolis Juggernaut Tribune.

…uhm, yep, kinda weird, right? Hey, I say the weirder the better! You might enjoy following along and seeing how I “repurpose” a bunch of last years blog art into this brand new… uhm… blog newspaper thing…

Creatives can find inspiration in some odd places.
