I’m working on some concept art for a new project. I liked one of the sketches enough to go the full monty and color it up. Let the magic envelope you like a warm wintertime fireplace at a ski lodge after a long day’s snowboarding.
One of my pastimes as a youth was to be a vocal and outspoken proponent of the sport of baseball. I played it quite a bit and even went so far as to call myself a “baseball player”. I left that life behind when I crossed the podium at my high school graduation and I now count myself among those who have retired from the sport and all of it’s glitzy trappings. I do still have the ability to watch and follow those with more skill as they pursue the dream of professional sportsmanship. And in the realm of bullpens, butcher boys, balks, and breaking balls, my favorite team is the Yankees.
A strident choice to be sure, but not one chosen on a whim. As a decedent of some true blue New Yorkers, my say in the matter of fandom was decided long before I could weigh and assess the merits each club’s attributes.
As a lover of the Bronx Bombers, I decided to create some minimalist Yankees themed cellphone wallpapers. You can check them out below and feel free to download them for your own personal enjoyment.

One thing that the city of Berlin (Germany) and I have in common is that at one time in our lives we have each been referred to as poor and sexy.
Okay, well, maybe I’ve just been called one of those things. Honestly, I’ve pretty much always been swimming in the Benjamin Franklins.
I’ve had the great fortune of spending some time in that city of bright lights and and even brighter futures. Rather than tell you all about the city’s delicious currywurst, clean public transit, and abundant museums, I’d like you to see the city through the filter of 16-bit videogames.

I’ve been playing quite a bit of the latest title in the Counter Strike line of PC first person shooters entitled Global Offensive. As the name and genre imply, the game revolves around calling down destruction upon your enemies through the use of strategy, economics, guile, skill, and ultimately, virtual guns. CS:GO has been called the “thinking man’s FPS”, and insomuch as that is slightly a contradiction in terms, I tend to agree. Regardless, my two loves of making art and bagging headshots have run together like cosplaying Mario brothers at a Nintendo themed half marathon. See the results of the merger below.
And because I dream of one day peaking over someone’s shoulder on the subway only to see some of my art gracing the background of their homescreen, I have cropped this beauty down into a cellphone sized wall paper. Feel free to consume this art like hearty lembas during your life’s journey.
I’ve also created tumblr blog for my work. You can find that alluring sweetness here: http://thomassexton.tumblr.com/
No, I’m not planning on spending a season in that wonderful country across the ocean (yet). What I have done is create a digital image, using solely my wits and every pixel that a modern computing system has to offer. You can check out that hotness by clicking below the words you’re reading now on the most sumptuous morsel of Japanese landscape art since the backgrounds of Samurai Champloo.
I designed this to be a phone background, so feel free to introduce your phone to the Japanese countryside as seen through pixel art.
This one was inspired by watching Big Hero 6 and one of the maps on Counter Strike: Global Offensive. Big Hero 6 takes place in a fictional, futuristic blending of San Francisco and Tokyo which I found to be just the coolest. Wanting to draw something in a similar theme reminded me of one of the views visible on the map de-Season. Check out the view:
You can tell how much I love the scenery because I have my knife out, rather than my M4A4. The knife helps me to scoop away the tears I shed while beholding the beauty. Plus, as a bonus, you faster with a knife. Everyone runs faster with a knife.
