Quick portfolio update with the super cool Botmoji avatar I created for Emojipedia.org's new Twitter bot. Botmoji is pretty awesome—if you're not sure the name or description of a particular emoji, just tweet her and she'll let you know, in addition to sending you a link directly to that emoji's Emojipedia entry.
Quick portfolio update of some more Emojipedia.org mockup emojis of the latest Unicode candidates that may be making their way (in some form or another) to a mobile device near you (at some point in the future). For now, enjoy the mockups and how they might appear!
Never have I toiled so vigorously with the details of rendering a dumpling.
As the title says—first test with the iPad Pro & Apple Pencil! I used the fantastic Procreate app for this. I played around with the Pencil for about an hour, getting used to its feel in the hand, as well as the sensitivity of the pressure and tilt—all of which are finely tuned and very impressive.
My first little volume of Metroid icons is now available! These icons were inspired by some of the artwork in the NES original's instruction manual, as well as others in the series. I hope to release more of these small icon sets in the future, from all kinds of gaming-related series, so check back in for more later! If you have a series or set you’d like to see made, drop me an email or hit me up on Twitter.
Included are .ICNS files for OS X, as well as 512px squared PNG versions for use on all other systems. More information available in the Read Me PDF.
Thank you and enjoy!

Small portfolio update! The current name of our new friend who will be making the rounds when Emojipedia kicks off next year's for World Emoji Day? Globe-moji! But hopefully he will have a new name by next year! Have you ever seen a happier globe more ready to party than this one? Get a closer look on the portfolio page.
