Jet Set Radio Sticker set 1. [ Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed ] OFFICIAL ART
*SPOILER ALERT* Don't look at the art if you don't want game spoilers!
So here's my big and exciting news I've had to keep quiet about since July. As of today my artwork has appeared officialy in a video game. Not just any game either, but a epic hulking mass of a game, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed - Out today in Europe! Soon worldwide!
I was hired to create 40 bits of sticker art for the game which appears as unlockables and achievements/trophies. They ranged from a varied set of my favourite SEGA I.P's and i was pretty much allowed to go nuts with them (gotta love employers like that!). In the end certain I.P sets were left out but I'm very very proud to say that I'm one of the first artists to draw the Jet Set Radio cast officialy in many years ^_^/ It is a HUGE honor for me as i love the series so much!!
I'm allowed to show all my stickers since the game is out now. The 10 JSR artworks I have uploaded. The other 30 unused images I'll also upload since I want the fans to enjoy them as much as i did creating them. I don't want the unused stickers to be confused with official/in game. (as funny as it would be to troll people to search for achievements that don't exist.)
A MASSIVE thank you to SUMO Digital and SEGA. Also to SEGA Japan and the directors/owners who gave me feedback on my artwork, included or not. To have the original creators of both Skies of Arcadia and JSR tell me they liked my artwork is kinda a... big deal? XD
Thank you to the owners of Jet Set Radio for trusting me as an artist to draw your brilliant characters who I love dearly. You really made my dream come true.
This game is pretty much out NOW on ALL the consoles ever. So please buy it. The thought of my friends and family being able to see my art in a Sonic game and know that I got there in the end really means a lot to me.
I made it! I'm an artist ^_^/ *happy dance* Thanks to all my artistic idols who I can now say I collaborated with.
Dreams come true in strange ways indeed.
Wow! The peeps at SEGA certainly made a good choice in hiring you to make these,
these look amazing!
You mean the video game industry? I'm already trying to get involved in it as much as possible, and I'm want to be a video-game designer one day. But I'd like to correct myself by saying that, IMO, I "feel" that Space Channel 5 content that's put into 'SEGA & All-Stars' isn't as much as I would like it to be, thus leaving me upset.
But I mostly feel that it's SEGA's fault for not bringing back their other franchises.
I'm not angry, but your response "Get into the industry and you might understand one day" leaves a bad feeling in my stomach, like distress, I guess (I'm not sure but it's something).
I have S&ASRT on Wii U, haven't found any of your stickers yet but I'll keep playing.
Here's hoping for Jet Set Radio 3 on Wii U - Imagine how amazing it would be to have community-shared graffiti created with the game pad!
What a fun privilege!
It's awesome, and your art is just as epic!
I remember seeing them yesterday and saying to my friend "Wait... they have new art, wow!" and staring at them for a while. Didn't know you did them! xD
Congrats and amazing work!
