Prompt: Battle Royal September --> Team Boardgame !!
Bonus Points: UFO
Project Name: Fun Fair Counters
Brief Description: It was hard to choose between boardgames and computer games - but I had a perfect project in mind.
About 8 years ago my cousin and I were reminiscing about a board game we used to play as kids. Its called Fun Fair, by Waddingtons. Our parents must have thrown it away as we grew older and we were devastated not to be able to find it anywhere to buy.. So we decided to make it ourselves. It took us about 6 years to complete becuase we stopped and started so many times, and we both had children which put on a stop on its construction for a few years. Then I decided for the challenge that I could fully complete the make by creating the playing counters for each player to use - and make them based on some of the squares from the game. So I picked the Fat Lady, Rabbit in the Magic Hat, the Flea Circus and the Crazy House.
The counters are hand made out of polymer clay and then hand painted.
Here is a link to the original boardgame we remade : http://www.retroactive-vintage-games.com/retroactive-store-item.asp?stockID=165
And here is a pic of the counters I made, and the board game we made is in the picture too
Prompt: Pong September
Project Name: Ah-Choo !
Brief Description: Does anyone remember the old computer game Grannys Garden? We were obsessed with it as kids. We played it all the time until the disk suddenly didnt work
It was a sad day.. But I was researching pixel art ideas and remember the game - which was a pixel game like space invaders. So I was lookign up pictures from the game and stumbled across a picture of one character I loved from the game (and had forgotten about) its AH-Choo !!!
So I made his pixelated form out of polymer clay and painted in the face. I put him on black backing and painted the words on. It matches a screen shot from the game and I put it on the magnet board about my workdesk
