After receiving a ton of requests to cover this topic, I decided to bite the bullet and make my first analytical fan video. This video takes a dive into the meta of the YuGiOh manga and focuses on not only the story, but what Takahashi went through to tell it.

Aloha Valve 2019
Took some of my early character concept art and dumb memes, and paired em up with my Tiltbrush renderings. The music is from Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite.
Had the privilege of joining my friend Heather Campbell during the 2017 Valve Vacation, part of which included access to the Vive VR platform and Google Tiltbrush.
Spent some time in Tiltbrush drawing characters from Genndy Tartakovsky's final season of Samurai Jack. Was a lot of fun, and a bit of a workout!
I took some videos of the finished products and edited them together with the music used during the SJ Season 5 promos, the song is "Hang em All" by Carpenter Brut.
