USAGI YOJIMBO: WAY OF THE RONIN


This mobile game, based on the famed Usagi Yojimbo comic series by Stan Sakai, was produced by Dark Horse Comics and game developer HappyGiant.  

I served as lead (and sole!) background artist on this project.  I spent countless hours paging through Usagi Yojimbo comic books in an effort to bring Stan Sakai's drawings to life in a new medium.  In addition to the final artwork, I conceptualized and built the levels from the ground up, working with the programmers to create seamless, scrolling landscapes and props Usagi and his companions could interact with.

Fun fact: being a part of the team that developed this game, I was invited to attend and work the HappyGiant booth at PAX East in 2013!
