Round 8, Game 1

____________________________________________

Last week, you got to see a sneak preview of my latest piece "Round 8, Game 1" in the production stages. Now, I'm glad to announce that the video is complete and ready for viewing. It is part of my current studio work at Limerick School of Art and Design, and while it is a finished piece in and of itself, it is still only a 'work in progress' in relation to the bigger picture of my overall work for the year.


Round 8, Game 1

____________________________________________

By now, many of you will have seen my previous experiment, "Game 2", where I worked with the language of Yu-Gi-Oh! to create a visually compelling piece. Fortunately, it went down just as well with the college staff as it did the general public and I got decent scores in my assessments for the last semester.

The next piece in this will take what was learned from "Game 2" and further refine it; basically the next video is going to be the same concept, but executed a lot better now that I know what I'm doing.


See you in New Jersey..

____________________________________________

The 75th SHONEN JUMP Championship will be held in Edison, New Jersey at the end of April. I've always wanted to go to a Jump but have been putting it off for (mainly) financial reasons. Luckily enough though, the date of the event cojncided with a sale from Aer Lingus for (relatively) cheap flights to the US and I began to take notice.


Extended Artwork

DoctorNik: "You gotta pay to play."

____________________________________________

Nik Ristoski (aka: DoctorNik/slick) has recently posted another article on one of the finer aspects of Yu-Gi-Oh!, the notion of 'paying to play'.
