So the reason I haven’t been posting much art lately is because I’ve been working on this project! Believe it or not, my Avenger dresses got me noticed by Big Fish, a casual gaming company based in Seattle. They hired me to design outfits for girls inspired by video game characters— they’re going to make posters that’ll be given out at Geek Girl Con! :D
The best part is that Wired magazine wrote an article about it omg. For an excellent discussion about women in video games and geek culture, click here. Big fish also made a blog post about it, with some of my earlier in-progress outfit designs here.
And yes, I’m revealing my Real Life Identity by linking this, but it was kind of a done deal once my mum started linking to the Avengers dresses at her workplace. Lol.
