Woot! April Fool's Mega-Post!

My pals over at Woot! have had me drawing lots of weird stuff lately. Here's a weird (and delicious) taste. Shown above is an old-fashioned papercraft gag you can download, print-out, and assemble yourself. Here's what the sketch looked like, and an alternate idea: If hi-tech gags are more your thing, check out this crazy Woot! Bag O' Crap video game I did a bunch of art for, also unveiled today:The idea is based on these shipping icons we developed a while back:And the levels of the game advance accordingly. I won't give EVERYTHING away but here are some sneak peeks at the levels and some of the goofy little animated snails and jittery obstacles I drew. Level 1 / Sidewalk / On "Foot":I love making animated .GIFs.PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket Level 2 / Highway / On Wheels:PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketLevel 3 / Sky / Jet Plane:PhotobucketPhotobucketFlying Spaghetti-O's Monster:PhotobucketPhotobucketLevel 4 / Space / Rocket Ship:PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

If that doesn't whet your apetite to play CRAPSHOOT! I don't know what will. Happy April Fool's Day, everyone!

I built that woot papercraft creation! It turned out fairly well, too. I posted some pictures on my blog: Decultured - Woot Papercraft Mixed Nuts Prank
