Game Boy

For Sactown‘s February/March 2012 feature about local RPG enthusiast-turned-FroYo-entrepreneur-turned-video-game-development-giant Mark Otero, I thought of ways to make an ostensibly dry business story come alive with some of the spirit of fun inherent in the games he makes. I needed to bridge old school gaming with modern tech hence the multi-sided die and the cool blue pixel tech dynamism together in the opening spread. What was really fun was illustrating 8-bit avatars to represent Mark on the different points in his journey, placed at relevant points throughout the piece.
