just realized I never actually posted anything about this project on my social media! O.O
so here goes, this was a... kind of re-do and mash up of an old project,
so to start I made this thing called pokemon swap which was a reskin of a game called pit. I thought it was a cool idea, my friends thought it was a cool idea, unfortunately nobody else really thought it was that great.
however I was noticing that people really liked the art of the project and were asking a lot if they could just buy individual cards.
that’s the first half of the story, the second half is, about 2 to 3 years ago now I did a project where I drew all 151 pokemon with the intention of making pokemon pins. It took some time but eventually I got a pin machine and started selling pins, unfortunately by the time I finally organized myself with a pin machine and everything the drawings were getting pretty dated and old looking.
so.... fast forward to January, a month before Tsukinocon, I had just finished my Tarot Card update and needed a new project, I was still working on a large client project, so I knew I couldn’t take anything too big on, so instead I decided to re-do the pokemon project! I could re-use a bunch of the card game images, so a large portion was already done for me!
it took about 1.5 months on and off of work, but I managed to get the whole thing done in time for tsukinocon!
you can find the pins in my etsy store!
