Jungle Gym

So for the past few months, I’ve been working ’round the clock on my newest startup: Ahnixware. Other projects such as my clothing line have been on the back-burner during this time.

The idea sprung on me after teaching a class in game design in Portland. I’d heard of a contest over at Tizen in which they were giving out tons of prize money for people to make games for their new platform. I’ve wanted to start my own game development studio since I was a little kid and now with the internets and all the new mobile platforms out there, I decided now is the time to start.

Fast forward a few months and I have a new company complete with branding, website, and my first self published game. (The game development itself only took about a month and a half, but the branding, web design, and cross platform porting has taken me much longer.) Here is Ahnixware’s dev blog and here is the game’s promo video:

Winter is coming!

Hey all, just got done with this fresh piece for Ahnix Apparel. Winter is coming so I figured I’d get a headstart (not that I wan’t winter to be here yet) and made this killer snowman of zen. I envision it being printed on a navy crewneck sweatshirt, though my current selling platform Red Bubble doesn’t offer that option. No worries though, I plan on expanding operations to the likes of Zazzle soon which has way more clothing options.

My initial idea for this design was to have the snowman gritting his teeth and firing a snowball machine gun rambo-style at whoever was lobbing snowballs at him. But I decided that promoting non-violence was a better idea than glorifying weapons and animalistic acts of war. The Japanese script says “Lay thy weapons down” or something very close to it.
