The Game of Kings...

Post by BigSi on Fri May 22, 2009 4:04 pm

Howdy,

Just a quick post to share a little something that I've been working on with a group of illustrators over at www.redbubble.com, the place I host most of my work and flog the odd t-shirt design.

Anyhoo, head on over to http://www.redbubble.com/people/gameofkings/writing/3116995-let-the-game-begin for a looksie, and click on the crest at the bottom of the sidebar for a trailer surprise.

Cheers,
Si

For those who might be interested, we've gone live with the first "wave" of this project. Each fortnight, we'll be releasing four character tees until the complete set of 32 (8 white, 8 black (by yours truly) are released. After that, the second phase of this project begins.

You can check out the tees, preview artwork, accompanying narrative and creator interviews at:

Would love to know what people think.

Cheers

Cheers guys,

@TST - actually, this is more of a collaborative art project (although who knows down the line, there's talk of a chess set) than a game. The initial run of tees are the pieces of the board, tied together with a series of written narrative episodes. After they're released, we'll be putting out another series of works involving the story of the 'game' itself.

Thanks for taking a look guys, and glad to hear that you like what you see so far - it's been a pretty mammoth undertaking, and there's another 28 characters on their way over the next couple of months.

Cheers,
Si

No worries, and thanks for the kiind words guys.

There's a facebook page for the project and a blog over at:

[url]gameofkings.blogspot.com[/url]

Where you'll be able to catch other updates as they go live.

BTW - I'm hoping that at lest some of these characters will eventually make an articulated plastic debut - but that'll be a while off.

Cheers

Hi all,

We've release Wave two of the Game of Kings character tees, and here's a couple of previews:

The White King's Bishop


The Black King's Knight


The White Queen-Bishop's Pawn


The Black King-Bishop's Pawn


For a closer look at the full tees, the accompanying descriptions/bios and backstory, head on over to:
http://www.redbubble.com/people/gameofkings

On a related note, redbubble's running an across-the-board 15% discount on all tees, and offering free shipping for orders of five or more until July 30. If you've never taken a look on what's on offer, I recommend you check it out - there's some INCREDIBLE tee work on show.

Cheers
Si
